lyrics

Hey Baby Sister
Thought I’d drop you a line
How’s your life
Hope everything’s fine

Haven’t seen you since your wedding day
And now your first baby is on the way
And though we haven’t always felt like sisters
I drove all night just to hold and kiss her

To tell her all the things I never told you
And to show her I all the love I never got to show you

Will she have your smile? Do you have mine?
I think you about you all the time
And though we grew up miles and miles apart
Sweet sister of mine, you are the jewel of my heart

Hey Baby Sister, are you OK?
It’s been 18 hours since things got underway
Do you deal with pain better than I do
Is that another thing we have in common too?
We never got the chance to grow up as sisters
But we’ve done alright, all things considered

Thought I’d sing the things I never told you
I hope you feel the love I never got to show you

Will she have Dad’s nose, just like you?
Or his sense of humor the way I do?
And though we grew up miles and miles apart
Your little Ruby, will be the jewel of my heart

May she be sure and full of fight
May her light shine ever brighter
May peace always find her
And may her mother’s heart never tire (Ever higher)

May she one day grow to love me
The way we’ve grown to love each other
Either way I will love her
Cause she is my sister’s daughter
Oh sweet Ruby, you are the jewel of all our hearts

May it never ever feel like we are miles and miles apart
Oh sweet Ruby, you are the jewel of all our hearts
