Over the Divide

Nickel for your thoughts love
A couple for a dime
Isn't hard to see you've got a troubled mind

Isn't a shame dear, wish it wasn't true
Wishin' there was somethin' that we all could do

Walkin' through the deserts, sailin' ore the seas
Sister, brother, refugees

Love' em when they're up boys, kick' em when they're down
Push' em to the edge of another town

Shepard on a mountain, over the divide
Meet me at the border and away we ride

Listen to the preachers callin' to the free
Share the Kingdom, share the keys

Take Me to Harlan

Never thought I'd go back
Hills & hollers pulling down on me
Kentucky's such a long way

There's an echo in the valley
I can hear it calling back to me
I will come to you love

So, take me to Harlan anyway you go
Take me to Harlan, didn't you know
If you take me to Harlan doesn't matter how we go
If it's you and me that's how it should be

Take, take, take
Take, take, take
Take, take, take
to Harlan

Never thought I'd go back
Hills & hollers pulling down on me
Kentucky's such a long way

Distance is a virtue
But only if it sets you free
My heart is tied to you love

Let it Go

I don't wanna cry, cry cry cry, oh
Come on baby try and let it go, let it go

When the time has come for us to part
Will you hold my hand?
Sorrow dancing circles round my heart
Will you understand?

I don't wanna cry, cry, cry, cry, oh
Come on baby try and let it go, let it go

Princes, kings and noble bravery
Fairy tears will fall
Let me rock you, walk you to the gate
Watch you run away

Don't Let it Bring You Down

Don't let it bring you down, down, bring you down
Don't let it bring you down, down, bring you down
Don't let it bring you down, down, bring you down
Don't let it bring you down

One foot forward and one foot back
Twenty times you fall off the track
One foot forward and one foot back
Don't let it bring you down

Sunlit shadows and moonlit days
Throwin' you off the narrow way
Sunlit shadows and moonlit days
Don't let em' bring you down, down, bring you down
Don't let em' bring you down, down, bring you down
Don't let em' bring you down, down, bring you down
Don't let em' bring you down

Decency's lost while fortune gained
Rich and weak fools may rule the game
Decency's lost while fortune gained
Don't let it bring you down

All of you souls who hear my plea
Pray for the seeker who should see
All of you souls who hear my plea
Don't let it bring you down

My Home's Across the Blue Ridge Mountains

Rock the baby feed her candy
Rock the babe and feed her candy
Rock the babe and feed her candy
I never expect to see you anymore

My home's across the blue ridge mountains
And I never expect to see you anymore

For I never, no never, will see you anymore

My home's across the blue ridge mountains
And I never expect to see you anymore

Goodbye my little darlin'
Goodbye my darlin'
Goodbye my little darlin'
For I never expect to see you anymore

Hello Friend

If I Could Talk to a Younger Me

Feel the fear inside your chest
Watch it ebb and flow
The darkest hour dies at the dawn
First clearing's yours to reap and sew

If I could talk to a younger me
I'd tell me to go slow
This time on earth
It moves so fast
And when it's gone it's gone
When it's gone, it's gone

If I could talk to a younger me
I'd tell me to be bold
Follow your heart like a bird set free
Dreams can't be bought or sold

Feel the fear inside your chest
Watch it ebb and flow
The darkest hour dies at the dawn
First clearing's yours to reap and sew

Feel the love inside your chest
Watch it overflow
True love asks for nothing back
Take this world it's yours to grow

If I could talk to a younger me I'd tell me to go slow
This time on earth it moves so fast
And when it's gone, when it's gone
When it's gone, when it's gone

On This Winding Road

I don't know where I'm goin', I don't know
I don't know

Rains fall, winds'll blow, here I go
I don't know where I'm going

Long time comin', long time gone
Longtime comin', on this winding road

Fall to the left, pull to the right, out-of-sight
A little to the left, a little to the right

Shine on, this little light, shine on
This little light

Long time comin', long time gone
Longtime comin', on this winding road

Fall to the left, pull to the right, out-of-sight
A little to the left, a little to the right

Shine on, this little light, shine on
This little light, shine on me

Come All You Coal Miners

Come all you coal miners wherever you may be
And listen to a story that I'll relate to the thee

My name is nothin' extry but the truth to you I'll tell
I am coal miners wife, I'm sure I wish you well

Coal mining is the most dangerous work in our land today
With plenty of dirty slavin' work and very little pay

Coal miner won't you wake up and open your eyes and see
What the dirty capitalist system is doin' to you and me

They'll take your very life blood, they'll take our children lives
Take fathers away from children and husbands away from wives

Oh miner won't you organize wherever you may be
And make this a land of freedom for workers like you and me

Dear miner they will slave you til' ya can't work no more
And what'll you get for your living' but a dollar at the company store
A tumbled down shack to live in, snow and rain pours in the top
You have to pay the company rent and your payin' it never stops

I am a coal miner's wife, I'm sure I wish you well
Let's sink this capitalist system in the darkest pits of hell

Bloomin' Rose

I was born unto this earth, green grasses softened my birth
Blue heavens shelter me deep beneath an evergreen sky

I withdrew from the light of the sun, four walls became my home
I could feel my body grow weak with every passing year

She was a rose, a bloomin' rose
Come and go in shadow
She was a rose, a blooming rose

At first there was only a trace,
but the building quickened it's pace
Will you sign this paper my friend
and pour the whiskey round

As the big wheel barrels on through
and the towers rise up all around
Til there's nothing left we can do
but watch her spiraling down

She was a rose, a bloomin' rose
Come and go in shadow
Farewell my rose, my blooming rose

Take your palace of gold my friend
It'll be no use in the end
Pray the soil will hold me close and
fold my body back in

She was a rose, a bloomin' rose
Come and go in shadow
Farewell my rose, my blooming rose
