Track Name: Vagabond
I went home to see my children
but they had gone away from me
Ransomed by the skies of midnight
to see how far the sparrow flies
to see how far the sparrow flies

They have come from their oppression
the rise of empire fuels their souls
Redemption sought for deeds undone
redemption down the barrel of the gun
redemption down the barrel of the gun

Wolves they cry for moons acceptance
the night betrays their shallow graves
to cross the river, pay your toll
I pray the passage saves your soul
I pray the passage saves your soul

For forty years I've cried
For forty years I've been alone
For forty years I've wandered
A vagabond, a bag of bones

For forty years I've cried
For forty years I've been alone
For forty years I've wandered
A vagabond, a bag of bones
Track Name: Darling Laney
As I lay your head on down to sleep
I pray your soul forever keep
As the lightning falls, this rain will wash
Your blues away, Your blues away
Track Name: The Ballad of Robert Barlage
A small town boy from the great midwest
with the weight of the world, upon his chest
A southern sea and a foreign shore
from the great midwest, to the great world war

His feet grow tired and tears fill his eyes
as smoke from the gunfire, fills the skies
And gently he falls to a knee
Lord I need rest, I need angels wings

When my days on earth are done
I will raise a banner high
for I have won

Curse the winter storm, that stole my son
for he was the only one, of whom I loved
Raise your glasses high, raise them high
for this is the day, we say goodbye

When my days on earth are done
I will raise a banner high
for I have won

May the tears you cry cease, weep no more
for there is no more pain
for I am home

May the tears you cry cease, weep no more
for there is no more pain
for I am home
Track Name: Run River Run
The night sky is calling after you
by the cover of the moon
the cover of the moon

And tears they are falling down my face
these tears cannot replace
getting over you

Run river run, river run down
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting for

Take my love and take it home
Soon I will follow

No other love, but yours I've known
No other love I've known

Run river run, river run down
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting for
Track Name: The Day I Threw Love Away
As I lay down beside you and I whisper your name
my soul it remembers the day I threw love away
As true as the nightfall, and winds sweep the plains
may they bring your love home to me
Com home, my darling Marie

Now I know I've done wrong, a time before
and I know that's what pushed you right out the door
But I'll keep on waiting, my heart longing yes
as that clock keeps on ticking inside of my chest

Now I know I did wrong, and I pushed you away
I pray that you're happy every morning I wake
My heart lingers still because it longs for the day
That you come on home to me
Come home my darling Marie

As he lays down beside you and he whispers your name
My soul it remembers the day I threw love away
My heart keeps on breaking because I know I can't be
The man who deserves my darling Marie
Track Name: Widowmaker
I see the sun setting o'er the western sky
My troubled minds been led by troubled eyes
I've crossed this state line a time or two
I crossed that same line loving you

This whiskey bottle keeps the times alright
As my boots keep walking blind into the night
I'll come on home when I've got something to live for
I'll come on home when I can't love you no more

And I've been walking for many days
I'll keep on walking till I find my way
This land I love is my only home
The sea betrayed, the only love I've known
