Track Name: Six More Miles (to the Graveyard)
Oh, the rain is slowly fallin'
And my heart is so sore
Six more miles and leave my darling
Never on this earth to meet no more

Six more miles to the graveyard
Six more miles, long and sad
Six more miles and leave my darling
Leave the best friend I ever had

Oh, I hear the train a-comin'
Bringin' my darlin' back home
Six more miles to the graveyard
And I'll be left here all alone

Six more miles to the graveyard
Six more miles, long and sad
Six more miles and leave my darling
Leave the best friend I ever had
Track Name: Katie Moore & Andrew Horton - Wild Bill Jones
As I went down for to take a little walk
I came across that Wild Bill Jones
He was walking and talking by my true lover's side
And I bid him to leave her alone

He said, "My age is 21,
too old to be controlled."
I pulled my revolver from my side
and I destroyed that poor boy's soul

He reeled and he staggered and he fell to the ground
And then he gave one dying moan
He wrapped his arms around my little girl’s neck
Saying, "Honey won’t you take me home?"

So put them handcuffs on me boys
and lead me to that freight car gate
For I have no friends or relations there
no one for to go my bail

Pass around that old long-neck bottle
and we’ll all go on a spree
For today saw the last of Wild Bill Jones
tomorrow’ll be the last of me
Track Name: You Can Go on Your Way Now
You done me wrong and you left home
You broke my heart and each vow  
I was right by you my love was true
So you can go on your way now
 
All through the years I have shed tears 
Tried to keep loves plans and our vows
But now I'll stay out of your way
Yes you can go on your way now

You trifled round all over town
You've had your fun dear and how                      
It didn't brother you cause I was blue (Katie stay up) so
So you can go on your way now

All through the years I have shed tears 
Tried to keep loves plans and our vows
But now I'll stay out of your way
Yes you can go on your way now
Track Name: Must You Throw Dirt in My Face
You've already put big old tears in my eyes
Must you throw dirt in my face

What is it that brings you to this part of town
Curiosity conscience or fate
I know it's not love for I once gave you love
and all you gave me was the gate
I got a feeling you've come back to just rub it in
and to really put me in my place
You've already put big old tears in my eyes
Must you throw dirt in my face

Must you keep telling me you've got a new love
I don't need you to remind me
Must you keep telling me that I look so lonesome
and that my better days are behind me
Must you keep showing me pictures of him
and boasting of his warm embrace
You've already put big old tears in my eyes
must you throw dirt in my face

You've already left me and broken my heart
Told me how much you don't want me
Believe me I'm happier when we're apart
Why must you come back now and haunt me
Must you keep showing me pictures of him
and boasting of his warm embrace
You've already put big old tears in my eyes
must you throw dirt in my face
Track Name: Lover's Return
And so you have come back to me
Andy say the old love's growing yet
You've tried through all these weary years
You've tried too vainly to forget
No, no I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth

Farewell, farewell now we must part
You never meant to do me wrong
God sent this anguish to my heart
To teach me to be brave and strong
No, no I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth

Farewell, I think I love you yet
As friend to friend, God bless you dear
And guide you through these weary years
To where the skies are always clear
No, no I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth
Track Name: The One I Love Is Gone
I don't know, I don't know
where i'll go or what I'll do
Makes no difference what I do without you
I love you my darling but I'll try and let you be
Goodbye, it's the last you'll see of me

I found a bluebird high on the mountainside
the little bird would sing its little song
So I'll sigh, I'll cry, I'll even want to die
For the one I love is gone
Track Name: When We Reach the Valley
Somehow we’ll find our way over the mountain
And down the valley, the other side
We may grow weary and even stop trusting
In the star above for a guide

When we reach the valley in due spell
What will I find? What will I find?
Will our weaknesses devour us
Will we be free from the echoes in our mind?

When we reach the valley in due spell
What will I find? What will I find?
Will our weaknesses devour us
Will we be free from the echoes in our mind?

Somehow we’ll find our way over the mountain
And down the valley, the other side
We may grow weary and even stop trusting
In the star above for a guide
Track Name: Since My Baby Been Gone
Door don't knock, phone don't ring
Can't keep my mind on anything
Clouds don't roll, rain don't come
Since my baby been gone

Six long nights with you on my mind
Drown you out with bottles of wine
It ain't right, I'm not that strong
Since my baby been gone

Nights so long, can't find the dawn
Since my baby been gone
Track Name: A Couple More Years
I've got a couple more years on you babe and that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
It's not that I'm wiser, it's just that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall and I've picked up
A couple a more years on you babe and that's all

Saying Goodbye girl don't ever come easy at all
But you got to fly cause you're hearin' them young eagles call
Someday when you're older, you'll smile at a man strong and tall
And say I got a couple more years on you babe, that's all

Now I've walked a couple more roads than you babe and that's all
And I'm tired of running while you're only learning to crawl
And you're going somewhere but I've been to somewhere
And found it was nowhere at all and I picked up
A couple more years on you babe and that's all

I've got a couple more years on you babe and that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
It's not that I'm wiser, it's just that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall and I've picked up
A couple a more years on you babe and that's all
Track Name: Blue Days
Don't worry about me,
I'm gonna be fine.
I did say that there would be blue days ahead
I was talking about the sky.

The last thing you ever did tell me
That you need to feel the wind.
Your forehead, so damp and so lovely
Close those eyes and you are still near.

The trees I turn to in autumn,
Fireballs before life recedes.
The colours of my love are always too bright
Just before somebody leaves.

Don't worry about me,
I'm gonna be fine.
I did say that there would be blue days ahead
I was talking about the sky.
Track Name: Little Girl and the Dreadful Snake
Our Darlin' wandered far away while she was out at play
Lost in the woods she couldn't hear a sound
She was our darlin' girl the sweetest thing in all the world
We searched for her but she couldn't be found
I heard the screams of our little girl far away
Hurry daddy there's an awful dreadful snake
I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood
But I reached our darlin' girl too late

Oh I began to sigh I knew that soon she'd have to die
For the snake was warnin' me close by
I held her close to my face she said Daddy kill that snake
It's getting' dark tell Mommy goodbye
I heard the screams of our little girl far away
Hurry daddy there's an awful dreadful snake
I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood
But I reached our darlin' girl too late

To all parents I must say don't let your children stray away
They need your love to guide them along
Oh God I pray we'll see out darlin' some day
It seems I still can hear her voice around our home
I heard the screams of our little girl far away
Hurry daddy there's an awful dreadful snake
I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood
But I reached our darlin' girl too late
