Track Name: Blood on the Moon
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)
Track Name: Hennie Walker
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
Track Name: Black Sunday
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
Track Name: Raven
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
