Be Careful Of Stones That You Throw - Porter Wagoner

 

Be Careful Of Stones That You Throw by Porter Wagoner


A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw.
A neighbor was passin' my garden one day
She stopped and I knew right away
That gossip not flowers she had on her mind
And this is what I heard my neighbor say.
You know that girl down who lived down the street
She oughta be run from our midst
She drinks and she talks quite a lot
But she knows not to speak to my child nor to me
My neighbor then smiled and I thought.
A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw.
A car speeded by and the screaming of brakes
A sound that made my blood chill
My neighbor's one child had been pulled from the path
And saved by a girl lying still.
The child was unhurt and my neighbor cried out
Oh, who was that brave girl so sweet
I covered the crushed broken body and said
That's the bad girl that lived down the street.
A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw...
