I'm movin' a mountain one rock at a time I'm-a carryin' the world upon my shoulders but I'm keepin' my faith and holdin' my head high I'm movin' a mountain before I die each mindful moment rock melts away I feel no weight upon my shoulders body in mind soon the truth I"ll see I'm movin' a mountain findin' me I'm movin' a mountain makin' a molehill just keep puttin' one foot in front of the other I'm risin' above fallin' to my knees I'm movin' a mountain soon I'll be free chorus I'm movin' a mountain chippin' away crushin' me this debt I must repay but what I'm mining's better than gold I'm movin' a mountain treasures untold chorus ---
Long Tom 05:50
LYRICS: daddy said, "ever find a still, turn around and run back over that hill sooner shoot than to look at you,” whoa the ol’ long tom deep in that dark swamp huntin’ squirrel and coon daddy’s words runnin’ through my head “careful what you do!’” “if you come upon a still, get back over that hill sooner shoot than to look at you get away, get away, get away” yonder come a clangin’ on the ol’ lead chain I could see from behind that tree long tom on his shoulder tuggin’ on his ol’ mule sled and still by two bootleggers here, revenuers there get away, get away, get away chorus boom goes up a still echoes through the hills boom, goes a lawman down whoa, the ol’ black powder there weren’t no bottle 'n bond just a deep dark swamp a brayin’ mule and a clangin’ chain and the ol’ long tom chorus ---
Homesick 04:03
pondering all my wandering over land and over sea for belonging's so demanding for a home, for my home searching, not forsaken 'lo the rocks, beneath the trees grows a flower, so demanding standing tall, standing so tall yearning for returning like a rock goin' down the road when it rolls no more, so demanding this is home, this is my home there's a train from every station there's a ship that's leaving port there's a bus from every roadstop there're my shoes walkin' out the door and there, somebody's dearly departed there's no place like homesick longing for belonging with each twist and every turn drawing nearer, so demanding is a home, my very home always yearning, for returning goin' home, back to my home ---
Near But Far 04:46
I reach for your skin but only find a drum to beat out this lonely dance of my heart I sing through the night hoping that you’ll hear the lonely melody of my heart oh, I’m not doing well in this body of mine i wake to find you’ve gone my worst fear here you are near but far I hunt for your heart but cannot find the key to unravel this mystery I’m searching for a magical pen to write the words a heart cannot say oh, I’m not doing well, in this story I tell that I’m not good enough no, I’m not doing well, in this heart of mine I wake to find you’ve gone here you are my worst fear near but far but near ---
