Track Name: Come On Say Amen
Don't know if I should cause the preacher told me no
Yeah, the preacher told me it ain't right
Sargent Pepper on the corner and the devil at the door
But I couldn't resist the moonlight

Calling hey hey
Mama moon, she'll fix you right
Calling hey hey
Flat foot jiving under street lights

Well it's a tip-toe slip show Phelipe Petit tightrope
Handcuffed for getting to high
Put your hand in the hand of a man who understands
And pray he leads you to the light

And pray-ay-ay
Daddy don't get to tight
Pray-ay-ay
Don't nobody think to ask why

Good lord, oh me oh my
Believe thou do me right, shall I
Believe thou do me right and I said

Come on say Amen
Couple hours till a blue sky morning
Come on say Amen
Hush-a-bye baby, the cradle done rocking
Come on say Amen
To everything an end, come time this night does end
So come on, come on say Amen

.22 in the hand of a patriotic man
And a hippy flower set you free
Skirts dancing on the bandstand feet up hand stands
Nobody buckle their knees

And say-ay-ay
Mama moon shining down on me
Say-ay-ay
Who you living to please

Good lord, oh me oh my
Believe thou do me right, shall I
Believe thou do me right and I said

Come on say Amen
Couple hours till a blue sky morning
Come on say Amen
Hush-a-bye baby, the cradle done rocking
Come on say Amen
To everything an end, come time this night does end
So come on, come on say Amen
Track Name: Before God Forgets My Name
Ay yoo
Willie Nelson in leather black boots
Dug Georgia, but she done refused him
Stomp stomp clap and she don't come back
Heard she drove to Washington

Ay me
Mama, I left yesterday cause it came my turn to leave
Fiddle and banjo
Riding shotgun in the passenger seat
Stomp stomp clap, if I don't come back
No I got gone

Singing this hymn, called Amazing Grace
Hear the music fading
If I ain't good, then I better get saved
Before God forgets my name

Ay yoo
Sunny don't count the reasons as law, gospel, nor truth
If you go leave with a peaceful step in your shoes
Stomp stomp clap and don't look back
and know you ain't the only one


Singing this hymn, called Amazing Grace
Hear the music fading
If you ain't good, then you better get saved
Before God forgets your name
Track Name: Jester Jack
Jester Jack couldn't trick his magic back
The ambulance picked him, but he's $49 down
And Angie his angel, star-striped and spangled
White girl from Ohio couldn't keep Jack on the ground

And man tomorrow just ain't her friend
It's an American song, but the melody's wrong
And the astronauts are leaving again
But Angie's still right here
Oh Jack where you been?

And JT 1990's baby
Born in Burmingham, first trombone in the marching band
Lost Jesus last Sunday, skipped school on Monday
Told the government he was too hip to can

And man tomorrow just ain't his friend
It's an American song, but the melody's wrong
And the astronauts are leaving again
But JT's still right here
Oh Lord where you been?

So you found God in Bob Dylan
Tried to Teach Your Children
Look at you all grown up
Mama, Papa, I'm feeling a little down

And it ain't just your brother, but your mother's ex-lover
Only time will discover
That the world is feeling a little down

And man tomorrow just ain't our friend
It's an American song, but the melody's wrong
And the astronauts are leaving again
But we all still right here
Right where we've been
Track Name: Hey Blue Sky Lucinda
Woke in Pennsylvania with an Alabama notion
Drove all night in the white moonlight
Cause time won't wait for me

When I think about love, I don't think about a reason
When I think about love, I don't think things she's done to me
When I think about love, I don't think about a reason
Hey I'm driving all night, hey that white moonlight, won't you shine down on me

So Lucinda go on home, back to Mississippi
The Dixie Chick's got Wide Open Spaces, but that don't mean they're free
Can I get your love
Hey blue sky Lucinda, your love is all I need

Amplifier in the back seat of a 1990 Ford
Those windows down and the CD sounds of those who don't cry no more

When I think about her, I don't think about a reason
When I think about her, I don't think about words that I don't mean
When I think about her, I don't think about a reason
Hey I'm driving all night, hey that white moonlight, won't you shine down on me

So Lucinda go on home, back to Mississippi
The Dixie Chick's got Wide Open Spaces, but that don't mean they're free
Can I get your love
Hey blue sky Lucinda, your love is all I need
Track Name: Mama, It's Come My Turn to Leave
Roll down the window turn the red bus key
Nashville, New York, or the North Country
Ain't we all a little broken-hearted
All we need is a start to stop this

And oh my friend we'll be a rolling out tonight
Midnight rider traveling 'long side
Four wheels and you and I
Four wheels chasing yellow lines

And it seems time is now calling on me
Mama, it's come my turn to leave

Nowhere is somewhere nobody knows
Ain't the place we're trying to go
Hey Bob, is that where the wind blows
Is that the home where I belong

Some got freedom but we all bear chains
You and I change to stay the same
Ain't we all got love inside
Or just a little bit of hate to hide

And it seems time is now calling on me
Mama, it's come my turn to leave

Million miles from the city and a couple hundred hopes from home
You and I ain't we both right here alone
Hey Mom, when tomorrow's gone
Don't think about me long

Just know that love was fair to me
And Mama, I was always me
This ain't a want or a need
This is just my turn to leave

Roll down the window turn the red bus key
Nashville, New York, or the North Country
Ain't we all a little broken-hearted
All we need is a start to stop this
Track Name: Miss Rosie's Going (Ohio)
She's gonna call it nothing
She's gonna me you the good life goes
Miss Rosie running like the Ohio
I wouldn't call it nothing

O, Brother how she sent me flying
Rocking my cradle everyday most night
Two American Spirits, one black night
One black night ain't nothing

She can tell you that the good life goes
She's Easy Rider rolling
Miss Rosie's going

O-hi-o-i-o
O-hi-o-i-o-i-i
Hey Miss Rosie's Going

$7 tollbooth
Quarter's got her to the New York side
Human being you're cool to cry
$7 ain't nothing

She can tell you that the good life goes
She's Easy Rider rolling
Miss Rosie's going

O-hi-o-i-o
O-hi-o-i-o-i-i
Hey Miss Rosie's Going

Miss Rosie, running like the Ohio
Love her like you're lonely, then you'd better let her go
Miss Rosie, tell you that good life goes
Easy Rider rolling

Sometimes a great notion
Trucks across the country to a California town
Picks her a dandelion, digs it around
I'm living on great notions

She can tell you that the good life goes
She's Easy Rider rolling
Miss Rosie's going

O-hi-o-i-o
O-hi-o-i-o-i-i
Hey Miss Rosie's Going
Track Name: Railroad Tracks [Live at Oberlin Folkfest 2016]
Railroad tracks
Cut like a scar across this mountain
They're taking me back

Snow on the mountain
It's coloring these coal cars white
I remember them

Fire on the mountain
Setting my memories ablaze
I've seen those days

Taking this journey alone
Knew you'd have to make it on your own
These tracks are taking you home
They're taking me back

Can you hear that whistle?
Echoing its refrain
It's calling my name

Taking this journey alone
Knew you'd have to make it on your own
These tracks are taking you home
They're taking me back

Railroad tracks
Cut like a scar across this mountain
They're taking me back
Cut like a scar across this mountain
They're taking me home
