Track Name: River Road
time goes by through highs and lows
and t he river becomes my road
clear the rocks and all the stones
breaking up my water's flow

eddies come and eddies go
breaking up my natural flow
some are friendly
help me rest or go
while moving down my river road

love comes by with highs and lows
and the river becomes my road
move the rocks and all the stones
dulling down my water's glow

eddies come and eddies go
breaking up my natural flow
some are friendly
help me rest or go
while moving down my river road

going down my river road
going down my river road
come on down my river road
come on down my river road
Track Name: I know I don't know
the sky is dark and gray

the rain falls and washes away

a lifetime of shame

soaked through with guilt and pain

and I do what I can

you see all that I am

and life keeps going

we’re here and then gone

I know I don’t know, yes I know

clouds shift and clear the way

sun shines on my day

childhood and dreams

life’s not what it seems

but I do what I can

and you see all that I am

and life keeps going

we’re here and then gone

I know I don’t know, yes I know

summer fades and turns to fall

winter comes and then spring calls

forty revolutions through

and I still haven’t got a clue

but I’ll keep doing what I can

you can see all that I am

and life keeps going

we’re here and then gone

I know I don’t know, yes I know

through the light shadows are cast

the future connects the present to the past

I’ll keep spinning on this rock

until my atoms become unlocked

and I’ll keep doing what I can

and you can see all that I am

and life keeps going

we’re here and then gone

I know I don’t know, yes I know
Track Name: I Don't Mind Failing (Malvina Reynolds cover)
I don't mind failing in this world,
I don't mind failing in this world,
Don't mind wearing the ragged britches
'Cause those who succeed are the sons of bitches,
I don't mind failing in this world.

I don't mind failing in this world,
I don't mind failing in this world,
I'll stay down with the raggedy crew,
'Cause getting up there means stepping on you, so
I don't mind failing in this world.

I don't mind failing in this world,
I don't mind failing in this world,
Somebody else's measuring scale
Of win or lose don't tell the tale
I don't mind failing in this world.

I don't mind failing in this world,
I don't mind failing in this world,
Somebody else's definition
Isn't going to measure my soul's condition,
I don't mind failing in this world.

I don't mind failing in this world,
I don't mind failing in this world,
Never mind the custom suits,
The gentle hearts wear the dusty boots, so
I don't mind failing in this world.

I don't mind failing in this world,
I don't mind failing in this world,
Some people ride in a car so fine
While others walk on a picket line, so
I don't mind failing in this world.

I don't mind failing in this world,
I don't mind failing in this world,
Don't mind wearing the ragged britches
'Cause those who succeed are the sons of bitches,
I don't mind failing in this world.
Track Name: Fist City (Loretta Lynn cover)
A you’ve been makin’ your brags around town
That you’ve been a lovin’ my man
But the man I love, when he picks up trash
He puts it in a garbage can

And that’s what a you look like to me
And what I see’s a pity
You better close your face and stay outta my way
If you don’t wanna go to fist city

If you don’t wanna go to fist city
You better detour around my town
‘Cause I’ll grab you by the hair a the head
And I’ll lift a you off a the ground

I’m not a sayin’ my baby’s a saint ‘cause he ain’t
And that he won’t cat around with a kitty
I’m here to tell you gal to lay off a my man
If you don’t wanna go to fist city

Come on and tell me what you told my friends
If you think you’re brave enough
And I’ll show you what a real woman is
Since you think you’re hot stuff

You’ll bite off more than you can chew
If you get too cute or witty
You better move your feet
If you don’t wanna eat
A meal that’s called fist city

If you don’t wanna go to fist city
You better detour around my town
‘Cause I’ll grab you by the hair a the head
And I’ll lift you of the ground

I’m not a sayin’ my baby’s a saint ‘cause he ain’t
And that he won’t cat around with a kitty
I’m here to tell you gal to lay off a my man
If you don’t wanna go to fist city
I’m here to tell you gal to lay off a my man
If you don’t wanna go to fist city
