Track Name: Waterbound
I went out late one night
Moon and stars were shining bright
Storm come up and the trees come down
Tell you boys I was waterbound

Waterbound on a stranger's shore
River rising to my door
Carried my home to the field below
Waterbound nowhere to go

Carved my name on an old barn wall
No one'd know I was there at all
Stables dry on a winter night
You turn your head you could see the light

Black cat crawling on an old box car
Rusty moon and a falling star
Ain't Got a dime in my rations sack
Waterbound and I can't get back

Its i'm gone and I won't be back
Don't believe me count my tracks
River's long and the river's wide
I'll meet you boys on the other side

So say my name and don't forget
Water still ain't got me yet
Nothing but I'm bound to roam
Waterbound and I can't get home
Track Name: Lazy John
I got a guy who lives by the road,
Eyes are crooked and his legs are bowed,
But he sure is a lot of fun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

I woke up at the break of day,
Down to the fields try to earn my pay,
Then much later you came along,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

We're gonna dance on Saturday night,
We're gonna dance 'til the morning light,
Then I'm gonna take my sweetie back home,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.
Track Name: Train on the Island
Train on the island, listen to her squeal
Go and tell my true love happy I do feel
Go and tell my true love happy I do feel

Train on the island, headed for the west
Run and tell my true love, the boy I love the best
Run and tell my true love, the boy I love the best

Steam from the whistle, smoke from the stack
Gotta catch that 5:18, I'm never comin' back
Gotta catch that 5:18, I'm never comin' back

Train on the island, thought I heard her squeal
Go and tell my true love I can't hold the wheel
Go and tell my true love I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, moaning mighty low
Run and tell my true love I'm sick and I can't go
Run and tell my true love I'm sick and I can't go

Train on the island, headed for the north
Run and tell my true love he don't know what he's worth
Run and tell my true love he don't know what he's worth

Run and tell my true love happy I do feel
Run and tell my true love happy I do feel
Track Name: Lady Margaret
Lady Margret was standing in her own room door
A comb in her long yellow hair
When who did she spy but sweet William and his bride

to the churchyard they drew near

Well day passed away the night came on
Most of the men were asleep

Lady Margret appeared all dressed in white
Standing at his bed feet

She said "How do you like your bed?
And how do you like your sheet?
And how do you like your fair, young bride
That's laying in your arms asleep?"

He said "Very well do I like my bed.
Much better do I like my sheet.

But most of all that fair, young girl
That’s laying in my arms asleep"

Then once he kissed her lily white hand
And twice he kissed her cheek
Three times he kissed her cold corpsy lips
Then he fell into her arms asleep.

Well night passed away and the day came on
 and
Into the morning light

Sweet William said "I'm troubled in my head
For the dreams that I dreamed last night.

"Such dreams, such dreams as these
I know they mean no good.
For I dreamed that my bower was full of red swine
And my bride's bed full of blood."


He asked "Is Lady Margret in her room?
Or is she out in the hall?"
But Lady Margret lay in a cold, dark coffin with
Her face turned to the wall.

Roll back, Roll back those snow white robes
Be they ever so fine.
And let me kiss those cold corpsy lips
For I know they'll never kiss mine.

Then once he kissed her lily white hand
And twice he kissed her cheek
Three times he kissed her cold corpsy lips
Then he fell into her arms asleep
