Track Name: Row of Dominoes
Carmen must have been the Devils daughter
At least he taught her how to wear her clothes
And the boys followed her to the slaughter
Where they fell like a row of dominoes
They fell like a row of dominoes

Don't let your past drive you under
You know how a memory comes and goes
Well the years rolled away just like thunder
Where they fell like a row of dominoes
They fell like a row of dominoes

Won't you tell me how you been
Something more than you've been feelin fine
I'm havin that feelin again
Theres a whole lot more to lay on the line
A whole lot more to lay on the line

Share and share alike you know I love you
But I also love the way the wild wind blows
So don't set your dreams up there above you
Where they'll fall like a row of dominoes
They'll fall like a row of dominoes

They say a fool never knows what he misses
And a wise man never misses what he knows
What can I say your ten thousand kisses
Fell on me like a row of dominoes
They fell like a row of dominoes

Won't you tell me how you been
Something more than you've been feelin fine
I'm havin that feelin again
And the dominoes are standin in a line
Yes the dominoes are standin in a line
Track Name: Little Things in Life
before I met you baby
the little things in life just passed me by
the sound of children's laughter
the tune to some forgotten lullaby
i was out of town on business
back when i had no place to call my home
i was arrrested by your beauty
we locked into a cell of all our own

you know i love you baby
what else could i do?
so let me know if there's anything
just anything i can do for you

when i was just a youngster
i collected crazy visions in my head
yeah the scene from 'the night porter'
a broken jelly jar crushed by the bed
yes at times our love was fragile
like a hand me down watch that slows down when its old
but our love could last forever
like a sacred ring of precious stones and gold

you know i love you baby
what else could i do?
so let me know if there's anything
just anything i can do for you

before I met you baby
the little things in life just passed me by
the color of the twilight
the reflection of my smile in your eyes

you know i love you baby
what else could i do?
so let me know if there's anything
just anything i can do for you
Track Name: Chinese Envoy
She was a princess, much lower than people thought
A master of nothing a mistress of something she thought
She could talk about things that never mattered ever
From one person's miserable life after another
She could talk to the French and Germans at will
They'd never listen
They never will

The Chinese envoy was here
The Chinese envoy was here but left
The Chinese envoy was here
The Chinese envoy was here but left

Calling out her name you'd be surprised at what came
Galloping out of the darkness like furniture
We'd have lost it all if it hadn't been for Cardinal Richelieu
And all his courtiers

The Chinese envoy was here
The Chinese envoy was here but left
The Chinese envoy was here
The Chinese envoy was here but left
Track Name: Downpressor Man
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Oh... along that day

If you run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
If you run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
If you run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
Oh... along that day

Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Oh... along that day

If you run to the rocks, the rocks will be melting
If you run to the rocks, the rocks will be melting
If you run to the rocks, the rocks will be melting
Oh... along that day

Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Oh... along that day


And if you make your bed in hell, I will be there
Make your bed in hell, I will be there
I said, make your bed in hell, I will be there
Oh... along that day

Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Oh... along that day

If you run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
If you run to the rocks, the rocks will be melting
And if you make your bed in hell, I will be there
Oh... along that day

Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to
Oh... along that day
Track Name: Blind Willie McTell
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, "This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem."
I traveled through East Texas
Where many martyrs fell
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

Well, I heard the hoot owl singing
As they were taking down the tents
The stars above the barren trees
Were his only audience
Them charcoal gypsy maidens
Can strut their feathers well
But nobody can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

See them big plantations burning
Hear the cracking of the whips
Smell that sweet magnolia blooming
(And) see the ghosts of slavery ships
I can hear them tribes a-moaning
(I can) hear the undertaker's bell
(Yeah), nobody can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

There's a woman by the fire
With some fine young handsome man
He's dressed up like a squire
Bootlegged whiskey in his hand
There's a chain gang on the highway
I can hear them rebels yell
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

Well, God is in heaven
And we all want what's his
But power and greed and corruptible seed
Seem to be all that there is
I'm gazing out the window
Of the St. James Hotel
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell
Track Name: She'll be Coming Round the Montain (Jesus' Chariot)
She'll be coming 'round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming 'round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming 'round the mountain
Coming 'round the mountain
Be coming 'round the mountain when she comes

She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses
Driving six white horses
Be driving six white horses when she comes

We all come out to meet her when she comes
We all come out to meet her when she comes
We all come out to meet her
We all come out to meet her when she comes
We all come out to meet her when she comes

We kill the red old rooster when she comes
We kill the red old rooster when she comes
We kill the red old rooster
We kill the red old rooster
We kill the red old rooster when she comes

We'll be shoutin' "Halleluja" when she comes
We'll be shoutin' "Halleluja" when she comes
We'll be shoutin' "Halleluja"
We'll be shoutin' "Halleluja"
We'll be shoutin' "Halleluja" when she comes

O, who will drive the chariot when she comes
O, who will drive the chariot when she comes
O, who will drive the chariot

O, who will drive the chariot when she comes

King Jesus, he'll be driver when she comes
King Jesus, he'll be driver when she comes
King Jesus, will be driver
King Jesus, will be driver
King Jesus, will be driver when she comes

They will plea and beg for mercy when she comes
They will plea and beg for mercy when she comes
They will plea and beg for mercy

She'll be loaded with bright Angels when she comes
She'll be loaded with bright Angels when she comes

She will neither rock nor totter, when she comes
She will neither rock nor totter, when she comes
She will neither rock nor totter
Neither rock nor totter
She neither rock nor totter, when she comes

She will run so level and steady, when she comes
She will run so level and steady, when she comes
She will run so level and steady
She will run so level and steady
She run so level and steady, when she comes

She will take us to the portals, when she comes
She will take us to the portals, when she comes
She will take us to the portals
She take us to the portals
She take us to the portals, when she comes

She'll be coming 'round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming 'round the mountain when she comes

Track Name: Close Watch
Never win and never lose
There's nothing much to choose
Between the right and wrong
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Still things aren't quite the same
Between you and me

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I still hear your voice at night
When I turn out the light
And try to settle down
But there's nothing much I can do
Because I can't live without you
Any way at all

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
Track Name: Not to Touch the Earth
Not to touch the earth
Not to see the sun
Nothing left to do, but
Run, run, run
Let's run
Let's run

House upon the hill
Moon is lying still
Shadows of the trees
Witnessing the wild breeze
C'mon baby run with me
Let's run

Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run

The mansion is warm, at the top of the hill
Rich are the rooms and the comforts there
Red are the arms of luxuriant chairs
And you won't know a thing till you get inside

Dead president's corpse in the driver's car
The engine runs on glue and tar
Come on along, not goin' very far
To the East to meet the Czar

Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run

Some outlaws lived by the side of a lake
The minister's daughter's in love with the snake
Who lives in a well by the side of the road
Wake up, girl, we're almost home

Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run
Track Name: Martyr - Acoustic version
I've been a martyr for love
And I will die in the flames
As I draw my last breath
As I'm close in on death
I will call out your name

I've been a martyr for love
Nailed up on the cross
While you're having your fun
As the damage is done
I'm assessing the cost

I knew what I was letting myself in for
I knew that I could never even the score

I've been a martyr for love
I need to be by your side
I have knelt at your feet
I have felt you deceit
Could have leave if I tried

I've been a martyr for love
Tortured every hour
From the day I was born
I've been moved like a pawn
By the greatest of powers


I knew that I would have to suffer in vain
Aware that I would never outgrow the pain
Track Name: Wayfaring Stranger
instrumental
