What She's Gonna Do

She's gonna do what's she's gonna do.
She's a train wreck on the tracks.
She's a labor of love that breaks your heart
and breaks your back.

It's nothin' to do with you.
Her wrongs are rooted damnation deep.
Sickle through them like so many weeds.
Harvest her black and blue.

She's gonna do what's she's gonna do.

Yep, another really cool one, MZ -- I'm with Brian, through it all, she will do what she's gonna do!

True of most people. In fact, damned few have turned their will and their lives over to me. It's a mystery!

She can be so many things
A lover gone wild,
A storm on the horizon,
A heart that wont listen to reason
The day dawning
Maybe just life
Maybe,
We should just let her

"It's nothin' to do with you."
Then why do I blame myself so easily?

The lyrical writing and flowing images draw up so much in so few words. Great write.

And doesn't that sound familiar? Oh, yes.

"Her wrongs are rooted damnation deep...." says it all.

One of the hardest truths on earth to accept about one's labor of love--as always, well-paced and sharply written.

This IS a country song - or classic Rock n Roll. And pure Mama Zen!
