Track Name: Rocky Mountain Mo-mo
Well I was born without a hitch
In the rocky mountain desert valley fever pitch
Oh baby I hope you understand
There's not the bluest eyes that could make me leave this land

Well I've been to Paris and I've been to Rome
Seen the Potomac, Mississippi, then I went back home
Oh baby, no matter which shoes you lace
There's not the softest lips that could make me leave this place

Not that I haven't been tempted before
New York has left me an open door
And California with its come hither stare
Everything in between pulling at my hair

Well I grew up tall and I grew up rich
in the Rocky Mountain desert valley fever pitch
oh baby, I hope we see eye to eye
For this is where I was born and surely where I will die
Track Name: Gimme Jesus
Gimme Jesus, Jesus
Gimme sweet time, sweet time
Give-a me a lover, a lover to turn the water into wine
I have a hardness of heart
and I cannot see the light
But gimme Jesus, a Jesus
and I just might do all right
And I just might do all right

Gimme Jesus, Jesus
Gimme sweet time, sweet time
Give-a me a lover, a lover to turn the water into wine
I could touch the hem and be healed
but my hands are black as coal
Gimme Jesus, a Jesus
to sooth-say my soul
to sooth-say my soul

Gimme Jesus, Jesus
Gimme sweet time, sweet time
Give-a me a lover, a lover to turn the water into wine
I'm not a pure lamb, pure lamb
but if you'll forgive my past
And gimme Jesus, a Jesus
well the first shall be the last
And the first shall be the last
to
Track Name: Kosovo
Kosovo
There isn't any place I wouldn't go
Except that is for Kosovo
Hey Kosovo
Kosovo
There isn't any place I wouldn't go
Except that is for Kosovo
Hey Kosovo

I sent my baby there with a kiss
And wouldn't you know it I haven't heard from him since
He could be wandering the streets
or worse yet buying beautiful women their drinks

Hey, oh Kosovo

He could've jumped the border with a Croat
I wouldn't in the least be surprised about that
And the thought isn't so absurd
He's being served dinner by some voluptuous Serb

Hey, oh Kosovo
Track Name: Albeit Slowly
Across the valley
I can see you coming
Pretty slowly, albeit slowly
I've prepared lemonade
and a small serenade to cool you down

You were good to come all this way
albeit slowly, albeit slowly
Before you come inside
you don't have to shake the red dirt from your shoes
This house isn't holy, it isn't holy

Across the valley
I can see you coming
Pretty slowly, albeit slowly
i awoke at dawn
and put my new dress on and watched you come along

You were good to come all this way
albeit slowly, albeit slowly
Before you come inside
you don't have to shake the red dirt from your shoes
This house isn't holy, it isn't holy
Track Name: Low Lands Low
Down in the lowlands low
If you're gonna take it, take it slow
Its where all the poor boys go
If they go at all
See for me one who lives there
he has black eyes and shoe-shine hair
He'll be sipping his gin in the easy chair
down in the low-lands low

Well he once was a love of mine
and he kissed me hard and he kissed me fine
It was only a matter of time
Till he went back
to the low lands low

Down in the lowlands low
If you're gonna take it, take it slow
Its where all the poor boys go
If they go at all
Haven't seen him since he left us home
put the baby in the cradle with the cat and a bone
I knew where he'd gone when the sunlight shown
down in the low lands low

Well he once was a love of mine
and he kissed me hard and he kissed me fine
It was only a matter of time
Till he went back
to the low lands low
Track Name: Fault Line
There's a fault line deep in my heart
I don't feel it till it quakes and I break apart
Everybody needs some shake rattle and roll
Feel it all coming in their bones
Well take me down to Salt Lake City
and throw me into the lake of brine
the wounds they'll sting while they're healing
but everybody's gotta do their own time

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I note that the valley has been subdivided
my opposition has been decided
green pastures all vinyl-sided
Well he maketh me to lie down by still waters
where the angle of repose is gently reclining
I was struck by a bolt of lightening
now I can't help it I'm always shining
Track Name: Sheri Dew
Oh Sheri Dew now don't you cry
some of us are single
till the day we die
at once revered, and pitied too
Lord let this cup pass from Sheri Dew

You could pray all day, you could pray all night
but that still won't make it right
If the Lord answers prayers
and if its all true
why won't he get a husband for you Sheri Dew

Oh Sheri Dew it'll be all right
Maybe he'll be there when you get home tonight
He'll be there waiting so strong and true
Oh we're all hoping for you Sheri Dew
