Black Woman /Wild Ox Moan

Ahm… Run here, black woman
Ahm… And sit on daddy’s knee…
Ahm… I got something to tell you, pretty mama
Ahm… Don’t you holler, please.
Ahm… Well, I’m goin’ up the country
Ahm… Don’t you want to go?
Ahm…Well, I’m goin’ out to Texas
Ahm…To hear that wild ox moan
Ahm… If he don’t moan to suit me Black woman
Ahm… I’m gonna drive my bell cow home
Ahm… Don’t your kitchen feel lonesome…
Ahm… When your biscuit roller gone?
Ahm…Run here, black woman
Ahm… And sit on daddy’s knee
Ahm… I got something to tell you, black woman
Ahm… Don’t you holler, please

Barrel

Take that barrel there
and roll it down
down the hill
down until

The barrel gon’ crash
on the way
or in the end
where it got sent

Waves Crashing In

The ground is moving under my feet
The earth is bursting at the seams
Waves crashing in
Waves crashing in
Rivers are rising, flowing high
And prophets sing the end is nigh
Waves crashing in
Waves crashing in

So stay close and brace yourself child
Its gonna be a bumpy ride

My body is shaking, but make no mistake
The tremble made the earth quake
Waves crashing in
Waves crashing in

Despite ill tidings, I won’t despair
My song will find a listener
Waves crashing in
Waves crashing in

So stay close and brace yourself child
Its gonna be a bumpy ride

Simmer

Hope is a burden
Weighs more and more every day
My soul is hurtin’
Cost of life is more than I can pay

Knee on my neck
Foot on my soul
A plea on my lips
I don’t know if I’m coming home
I don’t know if I’m coming home

Simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer….

Simmer up
simmer down
simmer simmer simmer

Mercy mercy mercy …
