Dave Alvin — Sinful Daughter lyrics

Dave Alvin/Shannon Mcnally
(Blue Horn Toad Music, bmi/Changeling Music, ascap)

Sinful daughter
Sinful daughter
Sinful daughter, sinful girl.

They call her shameless
They call her wanted
They say she poisoned every well
They call her Delilah
And Magdalena
And they call her Jezebel.

Sinful daughter
Sinful daughter
All alone in a sinful world
Banished and branded
Forced to wander
Sinful daughter, sinful girl.

Well the preacher in pulpit
Says hell and damnation
Is the destination she is bound
Livin' in darkness
Lost and forsaken
Driftin' town to town.

Sinful daughter
Sinful daughter
All alone in a sinful world
Banished and branded
Forced to wander
Sinful daughter, sinful girl.

Sisters and mothers
Fathers and brothers
They all shun her
Unless she atones
But let the one who is not sinful
Yeah, they can throw the stone.

Sinful daughter
Sinful daughter
All alone in a sinful world
Banished and branded
Forced to wander
Sinful daughter, sinful girl.

Sinful daughter
Sinful daughter
Sinful daughter, sinful girl.
