Alleluh 02:12
And bathed as in the sound of waking Mother, father child and womb Rest our mouthes to wade the river Some day glory called I won't contest its providence I question if it calls Oh Alleluh! All bridges blinded The rain falling on everything And it all comes back to earth If heaven don't fall down It'll be a simple time that glory called Oh Alleluh! Now you give me that old time religion....

Sunset 03:45
I went down to Reno To find a girl with long black hair I walked down to Tahoe to find she was not there The sun came down on those desert street I was feeling sad and low reeds of New Orleans was calling out And lord I had to go Ch: Singing Hey That red lights shining in Singing Hey I curse your city And lord I'm moving on again Broken Hearts, broken stones They left me by the dcks I was stranded with my useless words Love wailed out in the wind Well the sun came down on those Souhern streets I was feeling sad and low New York town was calling And lord I had to go Chorus

Quiet Faith 02:44
Emma Mae with quiet faith in your grey dress by the sea Its you that I dream of Its you when I awake So when you say that you're leaving How could you my love? There'll be a rifle on my knee When I beg for you to stay So when you say that your leaving How could you my love? Emma Mae with quiet faith In your grey dress by the sea Ain't I the luck one to bear your heart in name And to know where you lay? Come go with me and we'll lay your grey dress down by the sea
4.
Would you stay the night? The cool and lonesome night The moon is full, but I hear talk of rain When it comes, you'll have nowhere to lay So would you stay the night? Ain't a star in the sky The fields lay long and dark Cool wind is blowing Birds ain't singing but they'll be singing in the morning sun Why don't you? Oh would you stay the night?

Oh Theodore 04:21
Losing breath's not like sleep Ill walk the kids when I wake Though none of these are ones I have made Sleep where you'd find me I'll do it for days And I'll leave some bitter too If not for sorrow Now that mama's gone I've never see you all look so cruel But I'll never wake Now that I'm dead and gone I've never seen you all look so cruel And I'll leave some bitter too If not for sorrow

About You 03:22
Laughing with your teeth out You're wailing through the glass What I would do Would I not do? Now you're dancing across his lonesome plain with the word across your breast And I'm thinking about you Ch: I'm thinking about you And what I would do Would I not do... I saw them lift her from the ground For they could not ever live alone You say we'll be wed by Sunday morning But you've been known to lie before Out on the roof The sun's still wet Our shadows drink up the boulevard And I'm thinking about you Chorus

Tomcat 03:19
Ooh that baby, she needs a martyr She needs a body of her own And I. . . She says "tom cat, tear that skin back I have nothing to show" And its shedding fear The Lily's all cry no And there ain't no shame in going home No there ain't no shame in that Speaking in the hall I swore to give her my all But she needs a body of her own She says "tom cat, tear that skin back I've nothing show"

Arlene (free) 04:55
Arlene, you know our love don't mean a thing It'll surely wither down to bone wishing too all lies undone They're still falling, where love your breath was once a kiss Ch: If I'd have known I would've said we were wasting time Arlene, why do you always push when you mean for me to stay? That's alright mama I'm sure I'l go in a day or too Sweet, sweet mama, I know you've been lonely That's alright I've been lonely too Chorus

The Visitor 02:08
Nowhere in the sky Black with birds Nowhere in the sand The mouthes flood grief With reason my love: there's not a prayer in the world And I heard mother cry "where is my lord?" Well, he's nowhere in this world The burdens of sorrow, I'd sooner forget Still I truck 'em down The mouthes flood grief with reason my love: there's not a prayer in this world The burdens of sorrow, I'd sooner forget Still I truck them down

When the Bed 03:43
When the bed lifts The faith we required will be none at all The whore will be standing im deep fields of blue still I'll be mumbling on about what's left and what's gone who made the banquet and who stood in the hall Well you know my hands everyplace that they've been to, they've returned again Now the shoulders cannot carry What the back has brough eyelids threaded, the surgeon stalks down the block Once was a man of comfort and ease Now the lips swollen, the lamb burns in the field Smoke smothers the prayer Pick it up the bed will not break In deep fields of blue
11.
Set a table Set a footstool before me You can tell all my loves, I'll meet them there All that's passed between us Cannot ever be undone So I'll fix my mind to go Where my fathers wept before And there I'll drink to still my beating heart Chorus: Tried to tell her but I fell apart Cool and easy's how to break her heart Though our love was never near, now it's gone My love was al flesh and tender, Words could never mend her Chorus
