Track Name: County Line
He’ll mosey on, sunshine or rain, can’t keep his mind, off of her face.
But she’ll ramble on, no matter her fate.
It guides her along, lest she forget the way


Lay your head down, end of the day,
Dream baby, dream. So far away.

With renewed imagination, all the scenes you create.
Like the clouds against blue skies, millions of shapes.
He set out to wander, only made it one county away,
That’s where the tire blew out, so that’s where he stayed.

(chorus x3)
Track Name: Sophie's Start
Track Name: So the Story Goes
From the lakes of Pontchartrain To the lakes of Coeur d’Alene
To the lakes of Michigan
Im going home again

Which way did she go
To find her way home
I know we must be close
I think I see the shore

So the Story Goes
About two lovers about each other
So the Story Goes
You’re more precious than gold

Never fade from my memory
Live a river flows to the sea
This feeling inside of me
From underneath the roots of the trees

Like a perfect skipping stone
Trying to find its way home
I’ll never be alone
Cause this love is all I know


So the story goes
You’re more precious than gold
So the Story goes
of love waiting to unfold
So the Story goes
My love I’ve never told
So the Story Goes
You’re more precious than gold
Track Name: One Less Wife
I set out from Ypsilanti, left my home that two room shanty
Headed for the country of the gold
My daddy said now don’t you go with that woman son she’ll rob your soul
Should have listened to my daddy and now I know

Panned for gold and made a life, earned some dough and found a wife
The hard time ahead I didn’t know
Who would have thought when we’d get back
She’d take that kitchen knife and find my back
Should have listened to my daddy and it goes to show

Don’t treat me like a fool
Don’t tell me to believe in things you know aint true
Don’t think that you’ve won, because you’re the one who’s gone
And please don’t treat me like such a fool


Now I’m back in the Mitten State
One less wife and life is great
Traveled around the country and now I know

Take what you’re told with a grain of salt
She’ll take your heart and then she’ll walk
Telling lies as she walks right out the door
Telling lies as she walks right out the door
Track Name: Wagon Wreck
Track Name: One Turn
We are the daughters, and the sons of tomorrow,
We are the blood that makes the heart beat.
We must fight… rage against oppression
Can’t you see they mean to make here a police state?

I got a fear, something here is wrong I swear.
Everybody got to learn, you don’t get another turn, no…(x2)

All around the world there be wrong a-doin’
Who we gonna get to make it right?
‘cause all that evil needs to conquer all creation,
is for the good folks here, only but to stand aside.


All around the world folks are starvin’ and sufferin’
they wait in vain for some lonely savior.
And now the sun no longer brightens up their daytime.
The moon no longer cools downtrodden bones.

(chorus x2)
Track Name: Road to Lisdoonvarna
Track Name: Arbutus
Smoking Turkish cigarettes, you know I could not forget
Rowing on the lake just you and me
It was back in '99, the sun beat down the waves collide
With a daisy tucked down tight behind your ear


Oh Dandelion, you’ve confused me this time
How did we get from there to here?
Oh Dandelion, you are set deep in my mind
Back in '99 on the lake, so clear

On the lake so clear

They say that futures coming, and you can’t hide from it
From what supposed to be, so let your fear subside
Its like an avalanche falling down the mountainside
Or a westbound train with no end in sight

The future becomes the past before your eyes
We learn from our mistakes but they keep coming down the line


All the things we’ve said and done, all the things you’ve overcome
Don’t mean very much to you today
We learn from our mistakes, choose the path we take
In this life we keep on learning until we move on

The future becomes the past before your eyes
We learn from our mistakes but they keep coming down the line

Track Name: Whiskey Before Breakfast
Early one morning before the sun could shine
I was walking down the street not feeling so fine
Saw two men with a bottle between them
And this is the song that I heard them singing

Lord protect us, saint preserve us
We’ve been drinking whiskey before breakfast

Passed by the steps where they were sittin’
Couldn’t believe how drunk they were gettin’
Said old man you’ve been drinking long
Long enough to be singing this song


Passed me the bottle said take a little sip
It felt so good, I just couldn’t quit
Took a little more, next thing I knew
There were three of us singing this tune


One by one everybody came down
Heard a ruckus and they all came around
Pretty soon all the streets were a ringing
Sound of the people laughing and singing
Track Name: Indian Summer
