SHINE
Music and lyrics by Muriah Rose (Admin BMI 2016)

Born on the mountain
Raised in the woods
Momma and Daddy did the best they could.
I married a man, had a few children of our own
He up and left me, had to make it alone

I did what I could, I did what I must
When you got nobody, you got nobody to trust
I did what I could yeah, I did what I must
When you got nobody, you got nobody to trust

Feed the workers coming up out of the mine
Got me a car so I run a little shine
Clothes my children wear are made by my hands
The prayers they hear me say help them understand

I do what I can, I do what I must
When you got nobody, you got nobody to trust
I do what I can, yeah, I do what I must
When you got nobody, you got nobody to trust
My girl Frankie, she's just 15
Married a devil, handsome and mean
He hurt their baby, he hurt my Frankie too
With a hand full of iron I taught him what he should not do

I did what I could, I did what I must
When you got nobody, you got nobody to trust
I did what I could yeah, I did what I must
When you got nobody you got nobody to trust

Cynthia, oh Cynthia, huntress of the Moon
Jealous man coming to take my life too soon
Let my soul fly to heaven, 'cause I'm ready to go
tell the Good Lord up above what He already knows
I did what I could, I did what I must
When you got nobody, you got nobody to trust
I did what I could yeah, I did what I must
When you got nobody, you got nobody to trust
