CH Blood on the moon blood on the moon a man's been taken too soon Blood on the moon blood on the moon he'll be haunting you V I never killed that kid Sheriff says I said I did, uh huh Big boys make me take the stand Hell I'm just a hired hand Doing what I can CH BR Standing on the gallows Underneath the big Wyoming sky I'll be in Colorado In the sweet by and by V We walked to Tom Horn's grave And held our whiskey high Tossed the bottle hand to hand Made a toast to an innocent man CH (2X out)
Something 04:11
Baby Um Hm 03:38
V Hennie Walker is my name here's my story and it's true I've been living in Leadville since 1852 Came out in the fall from Southern Illinois with my husband Jack and my baby boy Search for silver and gold igniting his soul V Well the summers they were quick and the winters they were rough Supplies they fell short and things got pretty tough Flu came through when our boy had just turned eight And now he rests at some heavenly gate Search for silver and gold took the light of my soul CH Where are you now when I need you the most There aint no father son, only a ghost Search for silver and gold V When the bell rang at the mine you knew someone got hurt And I'd go running through the snow tripping on my skirt They brought my Jack down I remember to this day And I could tell he was gone From a mile away Search for silver and gold Took the light of his soul CH
Drama King 02:45
Black Sunday 03:24
Mama took our laundry off the line pockets full of sand every time Daddy sees the big wall rolling in Says kids it's time to get inside again CH And it's dust to eat Dust to drink Dust in our beds and In the kitchen sink Dust in our hair Dust in our eyes It's a wonder, We're still alive V Birds fluttered off rabbits ran away sky so dark on that Black Sunday We shut the door we pulled the shades and fell to our knees and prayed CH Carlson's they took off Johnsons followed lead headed to the land of milk and honey Daddy shook his head mama starts to cry And I just waved goodbye CH
Bein Me 03:16
Raven 02:03
Raven, raven in a tree clicking, cawing down on me Been my soulmate from the start trying to steal my wayward heart CH Raven, you're misbehaving Tell me that it is true Cause I love the black and the blue Of every part of you Raven, raven see you there, hiding underneath the stair Silver paper, broken glass lining up your sweet old nest CH
