Track Name: Who Should Follow Who?
You see the signs
Read between the blurry lines
You thought you had the choice
But you didn't read it right

You did your time
You loved him well you loved him right
He's a wind that's always blowing
And you're caught up in the eye of the storm

We go around and around and around
I take my shot
you put your guard up
and then silence

We done our time
Curbed our sandess kept it quiet
You're wind that's always blowing
And i'm afraid of being alone

'Cuz you say in the beginning
"I'll go anywhere for you"
But when you find that you want different things
Who should follow who?

We go around and around and around
And I don't know why we started
And I don't know where it's going
I done me time
Fought my way through the raging skies
Your a wind that's always blowing
And I'm longing just to be on solid ground

'Cuz you say in the beginning
"I'd go anywhere for you"
But when you find that you want different things
Who should follow who?

You lay it down, lay it down, lay it down
And you fly away, but I'm afraid
to follow you this time

We done our time
Oh I tried, Lord, knows I tried
You're a wind that's always blowing
And i don't think i can chase it anymore

'Cuz you say in the beginning
"I'd go anywhere for you"
But when you find that you want different things
Who should follow who?

Oh, you say in the beginning
"I'd go anywhere for you"
But when you find that you want different things
Who should follow who?

Who should follow who?
'Round and around and around
Track Name: Lay These Stones
The fever shadow finally passed is over like a troubled rain
She still asks for you everyday
Don't ask me questions
Take your silent glances with you when you go

Weren't you just sleeping 'neath the oak tree?
Weren't you just bathing 'neath the moon?
I swear this day feel just like night with you gone
Now I lay these stones for you
One by one, just for you

Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true

I see your face in every dancing shadow on my windowsill
She still asks for you everyday
Grey veil blowing outside the window of my misty mind

Weren't we just kissing in the stable?
Peeling yellow from your cheek
I swear this day feels just like night with you gone
Now I lay these stones for you
One by one, just for you

Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true

Do you just watch me here in my grey haven of memory?
Time is a mocking me
Am I standing or am I falling?
Time is a mocking me
Am I standing or am I falling?

Weren't you just crying when I told you I'd always be right by your side?
White lace was streaming down your back
Down your back

Now I lay these stones for you, one by one
Now I lay these stones for you, one by one
Now I lay these stones for you, one by one

Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true
Track Name: I Would Fly
A storm rained down on a Friday morning
It was a day like no other
Come and gone by Friday evening
Well, it didn't leave me with much to believe in

Mama slipped out on a Saturday morning
It was a day I hold on to
The smell of rain on a dried up meadow
A crack in the door and a moving shadow

But by Tuesday morning,
Well, I was light
And by Tuesday evening,
Well, I would fly

Papa got married on a Sunday morning
It was a day I remember
The soles of my shoes stopped me short of
dancing my into forever

But by Tuesday morning,
Well, I was light
And by Tuesday evening,
Well, I would fly

And I left home in the early morning
It was a day I'll never forget
A dusty road and I didn't look back for a second
It was a day I'll never forget

But by Tuesday morning,
Well, I was light
And by Tuesday evening,
Well, I would fly

And by Tuesday morning,
Well, I was light,
(Didn't look back, no I didn't look back)
And by Tuesday evening,
(Didn't look back, no I didn't look back)
Well, I would fly
Track Name: Hello Stranger
Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine
Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine
You are a stranger and you're a friend of mine

Get up, rounder, let a working girl lay down
Get up, rounder, let a working girl lay down
You are a rounder, but you're all out and down

Every time I ride the 6th and 4th streetcar
Every time I ride the 6th and 4th streetcar
I can see my baby peeping through the bars

He bowed his head, he waved both hands at me
He bowed his head, he waved both hands at me
He’s prison bound and longing to be free

Oh, I'll see you when your troubles are like mine
Oh, I'll see you when your troubles are like mine
Yes, I'll see you when you haven't got a dime

Weeping like a willow, moaning like a dove
Weeping like a willow, moaning like a dove
There's a man up country that I really love

Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine
Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine
You are a stranger and you're a friend of mine
