Track Name: Lonely Mountain
I see the sun's been sinking I've got darkness on my mind
I sit and guard my treasure losing track of time
I see the clouds a coming I'm ready for the storm
I've got a mountain full of gold but I've been told that gold won't keep me warm

{Musical Interlude}

I sit here on this mountain, a thrush whispers in my ears
spoke of things bound to come in my dying years
I looked into the silver pond I looked into the past
My day arrived my time was here it had come at last

{Musical Interlude}

The battle of five armies no less there was no more
The stars shown bright on Durin's day the moon lit up the door
Ten thousand swords of dwarven make ten thousand more had come
Ten thousand leagues by eagles flight the heartstone all but won

{Musical Interlude}

And in that stoney fortress the moon shown bright and true
A chest of gold from ogre's old a pint of dwarven brew
Track Name: Pale Rider >
Whoah pale rider
Theres a calm beneath the storm
Leave your foot prints in the sand
Come with me you will understand pale rider
Whoah pale rider.....

{Chorus}

Pale rider wont you come on in and tell me
Life is meant for you and me

Whoah pale rider
Leave your mark upon this world
Let your ship take you somewhere
Somewhere you can understand pale rider
Whoah pale rider.....

{Chorus}

Whoah pale rider
Theres a calm beneath the storm
Leave your foot prints in the sand
Come with me you will understand pale rider
Whoah pale rider.....

{Chorus}

Life is meant for you and me
Life is meant for you and me
Life is meant for you and me
Track Name: No More Blues
I met a girl down by the riverside
She looked at me and i could see
No other gal could ever love me quite like she
But she led me here to die
Woah and I've got nothing left to lose
Woah take a walk inside these shoes
Woah and I've had something on my mind
Woah she has run me out of time
Woah
{CHORUS}
She still lies in my dreams everynight
Sings sweet verses of the blues
She calls me over to the pale moon light
And i've got nothing left to lose
Now flies the songbird to the riverbed
Her notes do echo in my ear
And now the spring has come i wish that you were here
But that's not the way it is
Woah and I've got something left to lose
Woah won't you bring me back my shoes
Woah and I've got things that I should do
Woah instead of waiting 'round for you
Woah
{CHORUS}
Woah and I've got something left to say
Woah you didn't have to run away
Woah and now I've blown another fuse
Woah and I got nothing left to lose
Woah

{CHORUS}
I've got nothing left to lose
Please don't sing me no more blues
I can't think of what to do
If my life is without you...
...without you
Track Name: 4468
I used to listen to the willow
Down by her roots i would sleep
It's clear to me that times are changing
Words of wisdom falling like her leaves

Nights grow old the singing stops

I remember her voice calling
But the river there I'd take my rest
I thought she knew that I was falling
Come the winter will she face her final test

Years grow old branches drop
Nights grow old the singing stops

{CHORUS}
From the thawing ground
(From the thawing ground)
There springs new found life
(There springs new found life)
Oh the Willow's song
(Oh the Willow's song)
Rises forth again
(Rises forth again)
Calling through the night
solo

{CHORUS}

Have you heard about the children of the willow
I hear it now the song remains the same
Walk down by the river listen gently
A song or just the sound of rain

Years grow old branches drop
Nights grow old the singing stops
Track Name: Possum Creek
I was born 15 minutes from Possum Creek
We used to go down there to take a leak
But Mamma didn't know
That the water would flow
And carry me far away

Me and my Grandpa used to go fishing everyday
We caught a big ol' catfish, 20 lbs it did way!
But Grandpa didn't know
That the water would flow
And carry me far away

Now the water was warm but it also was yeller
So don't be swimmin' in that creek li'l feller
But Mamma didn't know
That the water would flow
And carry me far away

Me and my sister used to play in my room
She'd piss me off so I'd wack her with a broom
But sister didn't know
That the water would flow
And carry me far away

Now I was born 15 minutes from Possum Creek
We used to go down there to take a leak
But Mamma didn't know
That the water would flow
And carry me far away
And Carry me far away
