Track Name: Cold Cruel Wind
Where did you go
Cold winter morning
Tracks in the snow

The door was open wide
The dogs were wailing
In the cold cruel wind

Cold fear grips your heart
The horses grow restless
The heavens grow dark
Track Name: Pilgrim Song
The land between the lakes
Kaintuck to Tennessee
Lonely isle of cypres trees

We crossed the northern rail
Bound for Missouri
The tracks stretched out
As far as we could see

We drove across the land
To Dyess, Arkansas
Two lonely pilgrims
Searching for the master's home
Track Name: Ragged Earth
When the shadows fall and the lights burn low
When the day is done, where will you go
In this field of stone, on a dusty highway
I'll rest my bones, this is where I'll lay

I plowed and toiled 'till my tears ran dry
Under that pale quicksilver sky
This ragged earth is gonna swallow me
Like a seed that's sown in a barren field
