June Carter (Blackberry Winter)

Blackberry Winter:
Sing it straight from the heart
Sing it true
Like June Carter

Like a pine tree
She was rooted in the rocky ground
That breaks the plow
She was country

She told it like it was
And found the laughter in a frown

Singing on the radio
Always headed down the road
Playing in a string of tiny towns

Singing Keep on the Sunnyside
And Sweet By and By
But her favorite was Wildwood Flower

Singing high and angel sweet
Singing low in harmony
When life gets tough and you think you’ve had enough
But you’ve still got to go a little farther

Sing it straight from the heart
Sing it true
Like June Carter

When I was young
Riding in the backseat of our old blue Ford
My folks would sing
Turning plain old melodies into shining chords

Singing to the radio
Always headed down the road
And driving through a string of tiny towns

Singing Keep on the Sunnyside
And Sweet By and By
But my favorite was Wildwood Flower

Singing high and angel sweet
Singing low in harmony
When life gets tough and you think you’ve had enough
But you’ve still got to go a little farther

Sing it straight from the heart
Sing it true
Like June Carter

When June came to town
With Johnny by her side
Singing about Jackson and acting a little wild
Every word was one I knew cause just like her I’d grown up to

Sing it high and angel sweet
Singing low in harmony
When life gets tough and you think you’ve had enough
But you’ve still got to sing a little harder

Sing it straight from the heart
Sing it true
Like June Carter
