Raising Sand
Rich Woman - Download

I got a woman with plenty of money
She got the money and I got the honey
Called my baby late last night
She told me daddy everything was all right

She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey

I don't have to worry about her she's real fine
I know my baby and she's all mine
She give me a Cadillac, a diamond ring
She told me daddy don't you worry bout a thing

She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey

She's all mine and I'm so glad
She's the best woman that I ever had
She's all mine and I'm so glad
She's all mine and I'm so glad
She's all mine and I'm so glad

Ah, stop your train
Ah mama stop your train

Killing The Blues - Download

Leaves were falling, just like embers,
In colors red and gold, they set us on fire
Burning just like moonbeams in our eyes.

[Chorus:]
Somebody said they saw me, swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud, killing the blues.

Now I'm guilty of something...
I hope you never do
Because there is nothing
Any sadder than losing yourself in love.

[Chorus:]
Somebody said they saw me, swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud, killing the blues.

And then you've ask me... just to leave you
To set out on my own
And get what I needed.
You want me to find what I've already had.

[Chorus:] [2x]
Somebody said they saw me, swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud, killing the blues.

Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us - Download

Strange things are happening everyday
I hear the music up above my head
Though the side of my heart has left me again
I hear music up above

Secrets are written in the sky
Looks like ive lost the love ive never found
Though the sound of hope has left me again
I hear music up above

Standing in my broken heart all night long
Darkness held me like a friend when love was lost
Looking for the land thats hidden in the cross
The finders love
I know I loved you too much
Ill go alone to get through

I hear Rosetta singing in the night
Echos of lighting shine like stars after there gone
And tonight shes my giude as a girl on the moon
With the music up above

Polly Come Home - Download

If the wild bird could speak
She'd tell of places you had been
She's been in my dreams
And she knows all the ways of the wind

[Chorus:]
Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins

Dreams cover much time
Still they leave blind
The will to begin
I searched for you there
And now look for you from within

[Chorus:]
Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins

Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On) - Download

Some sunny day-hay baby
When everything seems okay, baby
You'll wake up and find out you're alone
Cause I'll be gone
Gone, gone, gone really gone
Gone, ga-gone, cause you done me wrong

Everyone that you meet baby
As you walk down the street baby
Will ask you why you're walkin all alone
Why youre on your own
Just say I'm gone
Gone, gone, gone
Gone, ga-gone, cause you done me wrong

If you change your way baby
You might get me to stay baby
Ya better hurry up if ya don't wanna be alone
Or Ill be gone
Gone, gone, gone
Really gone
Gone, Ga-gone
Cause you done me wrong

Through the Morning, Through the Night - Download

Believe me when I tell you
I will try to understand
Believe me when I tell you
I could never kill a man

But to know that another man's holding you tight
Hurts me, little darling
Thru the morning thru the night

The bond has been broken
The promise you gave
The words that were spoken
I can not be your slave

But to know that the trust you had in me is gone
Hurts me, little darling
Thru the nightime thru the dawn

I dreamed just last night you were there by my side
Your sweet loving tenderness
Easing my pride

But then I awoke and found you not there
It was just my old memory of how much I care

Belive me when I tell you
I will try to understand
Belive me when I tell you
I could never kill a man

But to know that another man's holding you tight
Hurts me little, darling
Thru the morning thru the night

Caught out running
With just a little too much to hide
Maybe baby
Everything's gonna work out fine
Please read the letter
I pinned it to your door
It's crazy how it all turned out
We needed so much more

Too late, too late
A fool could read the signs
Maybe baby
You'd better check between the lines
Please read the letter, I
Wrote it in my sleep
With help and consultation from
The angels of the deep

Once I stood beside a well of many words
My house was full of rings and
Charms and pretty birds
Please understand me, my
Walls come falling down
There's nothing here that's left for you
But check with lost and found

Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote

One more song just before we go
Remember baby
All the things
We used to know
Please read my letter
And promise you'll keep
The secrets and the memories and
Cherish in the deep

Ah...

Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote

Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote

Trampled Rose - Download

Long way going to
Get my medicine
Sky's the autumn grey of a lonely wren

Piano from a window played
Gone tomorrow, gone yesterday

I found it in the street
At first I did not see
Lying at my feet
A trampled rose

Passing the hat in church
It never stops going around

You never pay just once
To get the job done

What I done to me,
I done to you
What happened to the trampled rose?

In the muddy street
With the fireworks and leaves

A blind man with a cup I asked
Would he sing 'Kisses Sweeter Than Wine'

I know that rose,
Like I know my name
The one I gave my love,
It was the same
Now I find it in the street,
A trampled rose

Fortune Teller - Download

Went to the fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didn't what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head

Said she'd take a look at my palm
Said "Son do you feel kind of warm?"
And she looked into her crystal ball
Said "You're in love."

Said it could not be so,
Not with all the girls I know.
Said when the next one arrives
Looking into her eyes.

I left there in a hurry
Much to my big surprise
The next thing I discovered
The fortune teller told me lies

So I ran back to that woman
Mad as I could be
Told her I didn't see nobody
How she made a fool out of me

At last something shook me
As if it came down from above
And now the fortune teller
And I fell in love

Stick with Me Baby - Download

Everybody's been a-talkin'; they say our love wasn't real
That it would soon be over; that's not the way that I feel
But I don't worry, honey; let them say what they may
Come on and stick with me, baby; we'll find a way
Yes, we'll find a way

Everybody's been a-talkin'; yes, the news travels fast
They said the fire would stop burnin', that the flame wouldn't last
But I don't worry, honey; let them say what they may
Come on & stick with me, baby; we'll find a way
Yes, we'll find a way

Come on and stick with me, baby

Nothin' - Download

Hey mama, when you leave
Don't leave a thing behind
I don't want nothin'
I can't use nothin'

Take care into the hall
And if you see my friends
Tell them I'm fine
Not using nothin'

Almost burned out my eyes
Threw my ears down to the floor
I didn't see nothin'
I didn't hear nothin'

I stood there like a block of stone
Knowin' all I had to know
And nothin' more
Man, that's nothin'

As brothers our troubles are
Locked in each others arms
And you better pray
They never find you

Your back ain't strong enough
For burdens doublefold
They'd crush you down
Down into nothin'

Being born is going blind
And buying down a thousand times
To echoes strung
On pure temptation

Sorrow and solitude
These are the precious things
And the only words
That are worth rememberin'

Let Your Loss Be Your Lesson - Download

Once I had myself a good woman
But I just didn't treat her right
I was always leaving
Livin' a party life

True love was waiting for me
I was much too blind to see
Till she told me she would leave me
I said that's all right with me

Oh now she's gone
Realize I lost the best thing there is
And my pride keeps telling me
Let your loss be your lesson

Heaven knows I miss her lovin'
Heaven knows how much I cry
Just to think she had left me
And I know the reason why
I could tell she had been cryin'
It didn't seem to bother me
Cause I know there's no one blinder
Than a fool who just couldn't see

Now she's gone
I realize I lost the best thing there is
And my pride keeps tellin' me
Let your loss be your lesson

Your Long Journey - Download

God's given us years of happiness here
Now we must part
And as the angels come and call for you
The pains of grief tug at my heart

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Oh the days will be empty
The nights so long without you my love
And when god calls for you I'm left alone
But we will meet in heaven above

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Fond memories I'll keep of happy ways
That on earth we trod
And when I come we will walk hand in hand
As one in heaven in the family of god

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey
