Track Name: Hushabye
Hushabye now, my little baby
your momma kissed your daddy 'neath the apple tree
When you grow up, what you gonna be
A hunter with his rifle, that's my little baby

Hushabye now, my little baby
your momma kissed your daddy 'neath the apple tree
When you grow up, what you gonna be
A miner with his hammer, that's my little baby

Hushabye now, my little baby
your momma kissed your daddy 'neath the apple tree
When you grow up, what you gonna be
A farmer in the fields, that's my little baby

Hushabye now, my little baby
your momma kissed your daddy 'neath the apple tree
When you grow up, what you gonna be
A hunter with his rifle, that's my little baby
Track Name: My Lady Calls
My lady’s in the woods tonight
She’s gone alone, she’s gone alone
She won’t come back until the early light
She’s gone alone, she’s goes alone

My lady wears a cross of bone
She’s gone alone, she’s gone alone
From chalk white rib that was my own
She’s gone alone, she’s goes alone

And when my lady calls the earth shakes
When my lady calls, stone breaks

My lady took me by the hand
She’s gone alone, she’s gone alone
To guide me to the misty land
She’s gone alone, she’s goes alone

And when my lady calls the earth shakes
When my lady calls, stone breaks
Track Name: Vesper
The fields were flooded
and the barley drowned
We drove along the wreckage
at the high water line

The rains don’t stop
they just ease up a while
Dirt turned to mud
for twenty miles

The road was empty
the sky like lead
Telephone line
like a fragile thread

Dishwater coffe
Motel beds
He put his hand on my shoulder
but he looked straight ahead

I lit the lamp
and a cigarette
Sat on the stairs
’til he got out of bed

The earth was bleeding
the river red
the wind was whistling
but all the birds had fled

I dreamed a church
a mighty hall
Ceiling lost
in the sky above

When I awoke
by the vesper call
I thought of you
and I felt nothing at all
