Track Name: Shout Little Lula
How many nickels does it take
To see little lula’s body shake

Shout little lula
Sing and Shout
What the heck are you shouting about

Coffee in a pot
Sugar in a bowl
Daddy won’t eat without the jelly roll
CHORUS

I got a girl
She eats her greens
Shakes her leg
And she shakes it mean
CHORUS

Shout, Little Lula,
Shout your best

Your old grandmother's gone to rest
CHORUS
Track Name: Come on Buddy
Who’s been here since I’ve been gone
Pretty little girl with a red dress on
Roast beef chicken and a biscuit too
I’m so happy I don’t know what to do

CHORUS
I’m getting happy don’t you know
Come along buddy don’t want to go

Crank your ford and hold your baby
Whiskey scarce and I don’t mean maybe
I have trusted to my sorrow
Pay today and credit tomorrow

Here’s to booze and Choctaw cider
(take me home in an old Budweiser)-hilary
Lemon bitters and an oxtail tonic
The good book says its good for the stomach

There is something that I know
Never go to heaven on a barroom floor
There is something that I know
Devil will slide you right through the door

There is something sure enough
Never go to heaven with a little filled cup
There is something sure enough
Never go to heaven with another man’s wife
Track Name: Fall on My Knees
I fall on my knees, and I pray to thee

To come and stand by me, little girl

Stand by me

Look up, look down, that old lonesome road

Hang your head and cry little girl

I wish to the Lord that I had never been born

Or died when I was young, little girl

Died when I was young


I never would have kissed your ruby red lips
Or heard your lying tongue
little girl
Or heard your lying tongue


You’ve told me more lies than the stars in the skies

And you’ll never get to heaven when you die, little girl

You’ll never get to heaven when you die


My suitcase is packed and my trunk key done gone

It’s goodbye little woman I’m gone

Goodbye little woman I’m gone

You told me once, you told me twice
you told me ten thousand times, little girl
told me ten thousand times.

I fall on my knees, and I pray to thee

To come and stand by me, little girl

Stand by me
Track Name: Cluck Old Hen
My old hen’s
A good old hen
She lays eggs for the railroad men
Sometimes one,
Sometimes two,
That’s enough for the railroad crew

Cluck old hen, cluck and sing
Ain’t laid an egg since late last spring
Cluck old hen, cluck and squall
Ain’t laid an egg since late last fall

My old hen’s got a wooden leg
Best old hen to ever lay an egg
Cluck old hen, cluck in the lot
Next time she cackles she cackles on the pot
Track Name: Undone in Sorrow-with special guest Zara Bode
Undone in Sorrow


Over yonder in the graveyard
Where the wild, wild flowers grow
Oh there they laid, my own true lover,
He’s gone from me, forever more

Fairer than, the sweetest flower
Restless as, the wildest wind
Pored in with love deep as a ocean
This is was one that I did win

I left him there, back in the mountain
To see the world, riches to gain
Oh, when I returned, no earthly treasure
Could ease this heart so full of pain

Air so high, above the mountain
But, beneath that little mound of clay
Oh the one that I, returned to marry
So stand a mound of flowers did lay

I'll go away and I will wander
Lay aside my earthly gains
And I’ll not end, someone with riches
Undone in sorrow I'll remain (x2)
Track Name: Little Orchid
Oh my, Little Orchid
You are dieing in the sun
Oh my, I have left you
It’s a shame for what I’ve done

CHORUS
Little Orchid, Turn my head you little one
Little Orchid, All that’s left will be undone
Little Orchid, I have left you in the sun
And your dying day will come

Oh my, Little Orchid
Oh look what I have done
I can bring the rain
And all the damage done

Simple Little beauty
You’re a flag, you’re a sail
But if I would’ve helped
This little coffin’d have no nail
Track Name: Katie Cruel
When I first came to town
They call me the roving jewel
Now they've change their tune
They call me Katie Cruel

Chorus
If I was where I would be,
Then I’d be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be
Where I would be, I am not

Through the woods I’m going
And through the boggy mire
Straight way down the road
Till I come to my heart's desire

Chorus

When I first came to town
They brought me drinks a plenty
Now they've changed their tune
They hand me the bottles empty
Track Name: Little Birdie
Little Birdie
Little birdie
Why do you fly so high?
It’s because I, am a true little bird
And I do not wish to die

Little Birdie
Little birdie
Why are your wings so blue
It’s because I, am a grievin’
I’m a grieving after you!

Little birdie
Little birdie
Come and sing to me your song
Got a short time, to stay here
And a long time to be gone
Track Name: Lonely Ghost
I’m just lonely
Sitting by the river
I just lost my hat.
If I wait a little bit longer
It just might come back.

Come back!
Come back!
Come back!
It just might come back.

A lonely ghost with a head that’s cold
Saw an opportunity.
But everytime he slips and falls
That lonely ghost is me

Come back!
Come back!
Come back!
That lonely ghost is me!

If you ain’t got a receiver
I know why you can’t call
But it’s been too long my friend
I ain’t heard from you at all!

Come back!
Come back!
Come back!
I ain’t heard from you at all!


Come back!
Come back!
Come back!
That lonely ghost is me!
