Funny In My Mind (I Believe I'm Fixin' To Die) - Download

Feelin' funny in my mind, lord,
I believe I'm fixin' to die
Oh funny in my mind, lord,
I believe I'm fixin' to
I don't mind dyin'
But I sure hate to leave my children cryin'.

Well now look over yonder to that buryin' ground
look over yonder to that buried
It sure seems lonesome, lord
When the sun goes down

Oh, Why, Oh Why, Oh, Why

Black smoke risin', lord,
it's risin' up above my head up above my head
black smoke risin', up above my
And tell Jesus to Make up my dyin' bed

Left my home just to be with you
Well now, left my home just to be with
You got me here now that's the way you do
Come on, Come on, Come On.

Take me back drive me one more time
Take me back drive me one more
I do...? it's all down the line

I'm Feelin' funny in my mind, lord,
I believe I'm fixin' to die
Feelin' funny in my mind, lord,
I believe I'm fixin' to
I don't mind dyin'
But I sure hate to leave my children
I don't mind dyin'
But I sure hate to leave my children
I don't mind dyin'
But I sure hate to leave my children cryin'

Morning Dew - Download

Walk me out in the morning dew my honey
Walk me out in the morning dew today;
Can't walk you out in the morning dew my honey
Can't walk you out in the morning dew today!

Thought I heard a young girl cry mama,
Thought I heard a young girl cry today-
You didn't hear no young girl crying mama,
You didn't hear no young girl cry today!

Thought I heard a young man cry mama-
Thought I heard a young man cry today-
You didn't hear no young man crying mama
You didn't hear no young man cry today!

Now, there's no more morning dew
Now, there's no more morning dew-
What they've been saying all these years is true
Now, there's no more morning dew!

One More Cup Of Coffee - Download

Your breath is sweet
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky.
Your back is straight, your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie.
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above.

One more cup of coffee for the road,
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
To the valley below.

Your daddy he's an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade
He'll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade.
He oversees his kingdom
So no stranger does intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out
For another plate of food.

One more cup of coffee for the road,
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
To the valley below.

Your sister sees the future
Like your mama and yourself.
You've never learned to read or write
There's no books upon your shelf.
And your pleasure knows no limits
Your voice is like a meadowlark
But your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark.

One more cup of coffee for the road,
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
To the valley below.

Last Time I Saw Her - Download

Last time I saw her she was running
Laughing, swirling, high above the ground
People stop and check and watch her coming
Crazy little mama going round and round

Last time I touched her she was burning
Through her heat the everlasting light
Drift into her fires my ceaseless yearning
Flaming little mama - will you burn all night?
Hey, will you burn all night?
Hey, will you burn all night?

The first time I kissed her I surrendered
Hands reached for the skies - no disgrace
Safe inside my love so warm and tender
Move me, little mama - it's your place
Ooh, move me, little mama
Ooh, will you burn all night?
Mmm, will you burn all night?
Will you?

Will, will you burn all night?
Ooh, can you burn all night?

Last time I saw her she was running
Rolling, tumbling, falling on the ground
Mama always said she'd got it coming
Crazy little mama, keep your dresses down

Crazy little mama - crazy little mama

Song To The Siren - Download

Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle
Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
Touch me not, touch me not,
come back tomorrow:
O my heart, O my heart
shies from the sorrow

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am troubled at the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with Death my bride?
Swim to me,
Swim to me,
Let me enfold you:
Here I am,
Here I am,
Waiting to hold you

Darkness, Darkness - Download

Darkness, Darkness
Be my pillow
Take my head
And let me sleep
From the coolness of your shadow
In the silence of your deep

Darkness, Darkness
Hide my yearning
For the things that cannot be
Keep my mind from constant turning
Toward the things it cannot see now
Things it cannot see now
Things it cannot see

Darkness, darkness,
Long and lonesome,
As the day brings the pain.
I have found the edge of stillness,
I live in the depth of fear.
Darkness, darkness, be my blanket,
Cover me with endless night,
Take away the pain that flows away,
Fill the emptiness with bright,
Emptiness with bright,
Emptiness with bright.

Darkness, darkness, be my pillow,
Take my hand, and let me sleep.
In the coolness of your shadow,
In the silence silence of your deep.
Darkness, darkness, be my blanket,
Cover me with the endless night,
Take away the pain that flows away,
Fill the emptiness with bright,
Emptiness with bright, now now now
Emptiness with bright.
Oh yeah darkness
Emptiness, emptiness
Darkness yeah

Red Dress - Download

walk around my life
keep your money in your hand
look out where you're heading mamma
don't go running blind
shine lights and strut it out
keep your ear right to the ground
watch out for the strange cats
when the strange cats come around

mmm pretty little girl with a red dress on
pretty little girl shakin down

keep your eyes wide open
hold your head up high
you are not a stranger here
so much changes inside
hold your hand to hold you (?)
she would lend a helping hand
do not turn your back on the lady
when the lady comes around

mmm pretty little girl with a red dress on
pretty little girl shakin down

now now now now
some would say that love is blind
i blame it on the moon
some people say that love's unkind
they find it out of tune
mamma mamma mamma let's keep on dancing through
baby baby baby i'm dancing through for you
uh

pretty little girl with a red dress on
pretty pretty pretty little girl
shakin down

ooh ooh
dance down main street
if it's safe to the stroll
you have time to look around
saw a dame in the hole (?)
no one cares about the fool
worth the fine of gold
his only chance to plan
when satan buys his soul

mmm pretty little girl with a red dress on
pretty little girl shakin down
ah ha

pretty little pretty little pretty little girl (x 4)
mmm hmmm
oh ah oh yeah
oooh ho ooh pretty little girl
mamamamama pretty little pretty little girl
yeah yeah yeah yeah

If you'd seen the naked dream
I had of you
Would you care
And would you now come through

Take me far away
My wiles and mind can't beat a dream of death today
Hard to get by
When what greets my eye takes my breath away

In my dream you are around the stars
I watched your walls all fall away
You were bare of thoughts, we were to part
And we stayed that way

Some try to hide
Because they lied
They were not true
And they were afraid

They refuse to see
Or be free, be one to gods, they prayed
Cryin', Save me, save me!
Save me, save me, save me!
I'll save you, can I spend you?

And now this naked dream
I had of you
And Will you care
And will you now come through

Take me far away
My miles and mind can't beat a dream of death today
Hard to get by
When what greets my eye takes my breath away

Cryin', Save me, save me, save me!
I'll save you. Can I spend you?

Dirt In A Hole - Download

The preacher bowed and turned to go
He threw some dirt into a hole
He wasn't needed anymore
He shrugged and cast away the cold
He rearranged his preachers clothes
The word of god is all he knows
Precious boy so young and fair
Guarding castles in the air
Pretty flowers in sweet array
Picked to die and fade away

Message from heaven
Sun in the sky
Message from heaven
News from on high

God bless the solder and his gun
Small sacrifice then justice done
He's every broken mothers son
Pretty flowers in sweet array
Picked to die and fade away

Message from heaven
Sun in the sky
Message from heaven
News from on High
Message from heaven
Sun in the sky
Message from heaven

Message from heaven
Message from heaven
Message from heaven

He threw some words into the air
He spoke the pain we all must share
How we will meet again out there

Precious boy so young and fair
Guarding castles in the air
Pretty flowers in sweet array
Picked to die and fade away

Precious boy so young and fair
Guarding castles in the air
Pretty flowers in sweet array,
Picked to die and fade away
