Track Name: The Cumberland Ghost
I jumped in the river after you, but I didn't get through, I didn't get through
I pulled you out of a dark coal mine, not in time, Lord not in time
Now I sit on a mountain high, as my memories go passing by
I will never hole you close, I'm the story of The Cumberland Ghost

We fired corn liquor from a mountain still, way back in the hill, way back in the hill
The revenue men with guns came from the town, and laid me in the ground, Lord they laid me in the ground
Now I sit on a mountain high, as my memories go passing by
I will never hold you close, I'm the story of The Cumberland Ghost

In the Cumberland Hills there's many ways to die, and I've known every one of these
I've roamed these hills for many moons gone by, this song now has lifted, and set my spirit free
Track Name: Work
I run this coal mine, I run this town
I send them miners way underground
What I want to know, How much we make today

I"m in a hurry, I ain't got time
Its a long weekend at the Lonesome Pine
I suggest you go to church, or scrape it off my boot

I've got a long way to go

My tears have dried up, like the river bed.
Empty hands stretch out to me, as I turn my head
The ghosts they dance around, the shadows as I sleep

The mists are heavy, the clouds are dark
The night is creeping upon my heart
How will I ever find my way to get back home?

I've got a long way to go
Track Name: Twenty-Four
Was the year of Twenty-Four
Ten Years I've been Fighting a Long Forgot War
A sword by my side, a pistol in my hand
I never wanted to kill any man
Whoa, What of My Soul, When I go Back to Cumberland

A Fire Lit up a cool clear night
I knew right then it was my time to fight
No River could was away all the blood,
That was spilled over Cumberland mud
Whoa, What of My Sould, When I go Back to Cumberland
Track Name: Blue Kentucky Night
I'll wait for you, you wait for me in Louisville
The stars shine so bright through the Blue Kentucky night
keep the fire burning hot for the still

Disappear into the dark of night, travel across the hills toward the light
Move a little quicker with a car full of liquor,
in the morning everything will be alright
Policemen don't like what we do, unless they get their share of revenue
We make the finest shine from here to Caroline,
keep them jugs full of good ole mountain dew

When I look into my darlin's eyes, doesn't take me long to realize
Our love is so strong, it will carry on
through the night to the morning sunrise
The revenue men they came upon the hill, and chopped down our moonshine still
I took my stand on that Cumberland land
now my picture sits on the window seal
Track Name: On High
Do you know what it feels to be free?
Said the old owl sitting in the top of the tree
Look across that valley wide, and hear the songs coming from on high

Have you ever smelled the sweet perfume,
of the honeysuckle vine in the month of June?
Drift away across the sky, and hear the songs coming from on high

Have you felt the warmth of the rising sun?
Night is gone and the day has come.
Look down deep into my eyes, and hear the songs coming from on high
Track Name: Cumberland Gap
I've got a gal, she's so tall touches the top of the waterfall
I've got a gal, she's so small, fits in my pocket boots and all
Cumberland Gap Cumberland Gap, I"m going back to Cumberland Gap

I've got a gal, she's so mean, sprinkles coal dust in the pinto beans
I've got a gal, she's so round, every little step makes a hole in the ground
Cumberland Gap Cumberland Gap, I'm going back to Cumberland Gap
