The Secret (free) 04:00
Morning Seems like it ain't ever gonna come A pity, it's a pity Its a pity for the man without a master And blood runs free mama Mourning Ain't quitting for good in my days And blood runs free mama Pity, its a pity It's a pity it ain't the lord what struck you down
2.
Were you to sing some lonesome morning And swallow my last breath If by your lips we were parted I'd remember you as true A desert rain is also falling It has drowned my lonesome mind Its oh so still, the flowers wilted Though they recall a heart untrue A heart for dreaming will tear blossom from the vine Had I tried and lord I tried But for every love you're mourning You'd still be mine

Pauline 02:56
Hey there father, its so good to see you again Its going breezy and the clouds don't end The fans of my friends, and friends I've never made Are all out there somewhere in this world But as you and I were parted I pray I may return And I hope that I make it before the rain I worked my fingers till they bled and minded what I said But the dreams I had was never meant to be You always said you'd meet me here and it's as I always feared This is no place for a man to stand I gave my life I gave my money to Pauline And here she's living by the sea Although she loved me well I damned her life to hell I wish I could have been a better man You always said you'd meet me here And its as I always feared This is no place for a man to stand

Blackwater (free) 02:49
On the deep black river I wait for you to shine Some gone day You'll get yourself together Then and there We're crying for you now Not your sunshine baby nor pouring rain No, the night is long And I'm lonely again When you get broke down Your voice ain't the same Still the River Man call "Boy come again" On the old dead ocean In their sailing suits and caps All our days drowned down, down awaiting saviors and black haired gals We're crying for you now Not your sunshine baby Or pouring rain No, the night is long and I'm lonely again

Free for so long Lays his teeth On the shelf If he's on his knees Then you know he will It's been a long, tall winter And lonesome yes besides He wants out But he's in it See him trembling so There's a shadow wan and lonesome Like one you've seen before lord It'll drag you down and leave you to the dogs

Broke Again 01:32

For Nothing 01:56
If I die before you meet me Lead my body to its grave When I lay aside that stone Won't be the man I was known to be Hey I sang the whole day long for nothing Hey tomorrow is sorrow Hey I sang the whole day long But I never said a word My good friends have slept before the serpent I myself don't even rise My sweet love is 'neath the window Sun soaked, blood stained thighs Hey I sang the whole day long Hey for nothing Hey I sang the whole day long for nothing And pissed into the wind I spoke the words of the master To an old, dead drum

I tried to get across I'd given up as lost Everybody in this wide world but you For you I started falling And one night I heard you calling Come darling And keep me by your side Won't you tell me now Who's that lying on your pillow? Don't tell me why Just tell me who's that lying on your pillow Don't tell me why Our love it started strong You hurried me along No I never thought you'd throw that love away Darling Oh my darling I hate to set you free So I would leave you nearer god to thee Mama, sweet mama won't you miss me when I've gone I can never tell, look how you carry on Won't you tell me Who's that lying on your pillow? Don't tell me why Just tell me who's that lying on your pillow Don't tell me why Darling, oh darling I hate to set you free So I will leave you to your lord Nearer your god to thee
