turtleheadThe Truth

v1. I went and asked my Mother, what I should do
How I loved you like no other
And your heart had run me through
She warned about the wild ones
Said I’d best to just hang loose

br. But I’m not that kind of woman, no
I’m not that kind of woman, no
I’m not that kind of girl

v2. I went and begged a preacher
Help keep me on the road
A path straight and narrow
While intoxicated with love’s hold
He said get down on your knees girl
Let me get some Christ in you

br. But I’m not that kind of woman, no
I’m not that kind of woman, no
I’m not that kind of girl

ch. Isn’t there someone to help me help me
Isn’t there someone to get me through
Isn’t there some way I can save face
Hidin’ myself from the awful truth, the truth, the truth

v3. I went to see a doctor for an expert point of view
He chatted for an hour
Diplomas cluttered up the room
He said my time had run out
And handed me a script for pills

br. But I’m not that kind of woman, no
I’m not that kind of woman, no
I’m not that kind of girl

ch.

v4. I went up to a mirror and I looked straight on through
Returning to that pristine place
I found your wilderness and shoes
Chains and tarnish in my sacred space
I am tangled up in truth

The truth will set you free
The truth will set you free
Hanging freely from a tree
