Track Name: Promised Land
9th of march 1874

walking along just me and my horse

can you hear, hear what i say

I'm walking from Carlisle to Robin Hoods Bay

I have travelled so far

met a man on the way

he gave me faith , I threw it away

cuz God you have to pay

and ain't no God gonna get in my way

I have travelled so far

I'm searching for the promised land

when I get there gonna work it with my hands

I'm searching for the promised land

when I get there get there get there gonna work it with my hands

met a woman she was beauty

she brought my motherfuckin' faith right back to me

she said she loved me but she lied

so I left her in the still dark night

I have travelled so far

and soon my journey will end

and I will rest in the ground along with my friend

but until that day I'll be here

moving closer to what I fear

I have travelled so far

I'm searching for the promised land

when I get there gonna work it with my hands

I’m searching for the promised land

when I get there gonna work it with my hands

I'm searching for the promised land

when I get there gonna work it with my hands

I'm searching for the promised land

when I get there get there get there gonna work it with my hands

with my hands

with my hands

with my little crab hands

with my little crab hands

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want
just call him up and tell him what you want
I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

just call him up and tell him what you want

if your sick and you want to get better tell him what you want

if your sick and you want to get better tell him what you want

if your sick and you want to get better tell him what you want

just call him up and tell him what you want

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

I said Jesus on the main line.. tell him what you want

just call him up and tell him what you want
Track Name: Suffering
he came from FL241

born in to the prairie and the country sun

he wore sunglasses and his papa old hat

he was happy he knew how to kick back

now he went to the city and met a girl called Charlotte

who sung in a band called the red hot scarlet's

but she met Tommy and didn’t call no more
and he just wanted her to walk through his door

and he said

does love fall apart by its self

or does it just find someone else

he said

does love fall apart by its self

or does it just find someone else

wont you tell me

do you need somebody

do you love somebody

are you loving somebody

cuz i got to got to got to I got to know

do you need somebody

do you love somebody

are you loving somebody

cuz i got to got to got to I got to know

when love falls apart more than two people suffer

when love falls apart more than two people hurt

when Holly met Bret , Jamie was suffering

when Marco met Marlon well Maggie was suffering

does love fall apart by its self

or does it just find someone else

he said

does love fall apart by its self

or does it just find someone else

won't you tell me

do you need somebody

do you love somebody

are you loving somebody

cuz i got to got to got to I got to know

do you need somebody

do you love somebody

are you loving somebody

cuz i got to got to got to I got to know
Track Name: Johnson's Corner
choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

well I was standing at the station with a suitcase in my hand
the great clock above my head was waving all it's hand
waiting for the train to see my lover
there were soldiers there were priests
there were crates full of geese
there were kids and ma's and pa's
and a band with guitars
all waiting for the train to Johnson's Corner

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

well the big wheels started turning as the train pulled out
some people were talking and moving about
a kid was running up and down
a fat man ate a pie
we were picking up speed 60 miles an hour
that mighty train showing all her power
and everyone was talking about their destination

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

passing wide open prairies and lakes vast and wide
some people were sleeping and some were getting high
and I was thinking about my love my lover
that black majestic train pulled up the mountain side
higher and higher through the clouds up we rise
everyone was looking they could see for miles and miles

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

when we got to the top it felt like time stood still
something wasn't right and I felt a cold chill
and all I could think about
was kissing my darlin'
we were picking up speed as we started going down
everyone was laughing and acting like clowns
and I got a sudden thought and urge to write a letter

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

it said my dear dear love
you mean everything to me
more than the earth and the sun and the sea
I was trying to remember the last time we made love
well faster and faster the train went down the track
500 tones of steel were strapped to the back
the drinks started sliding and a momma held her baby

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

80, 90 a 100 or more
the driver and the guard could hear the engine roar
he walked calmly down and said
hold on tight now
well finishing the letter
the last words that i wrote
I love you more than life it's self
that age old quote
I sealed up the letter and layed it on the table

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

well smoke and sparks were flying
and the wheels were running red
the driver had the breaks on but nothing was gonna work
closer and closer to the corner round the mountain
well the priest sitting across from me forgive me for my sins
the girl with the blonde hair she kissed me on the chin
the breaks were screaming
the train it sounded like thunder

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

well the corner getting closer closer by the second
the driver crossed himself said Jesus beckons
all I could think about was love and the devil
then suddenly a crash of twisted mangled steel
then perfect silence like time stood still
I was floating in the air a dog passed by me

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

well I held that letter tight in my hand
I shouted i love you i am your man
the light went out when i hit the bottom
when they found me I was headless deep in the land
but found that letter still in my hand
they took it out and took it straight to my lover.

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner

now on the 15th of April every single year
they meet in a church and shed a little tear
for the wives husbands sons and lovers
and in the center of town it is written on a stone
remembering the train crash a long time ago
the same words that were written in my letter

it said my dear dear love you mean everything to me
more than the earth and the sun and the sea
well the train has gone but never ever forgotten

choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner
choo choo train is rolling down the track
they don't know they're never coming back
heading on down the line to Johnson's Corner
Track Name: Cherry Pie
momma's got cherry pie
mommas got cherry pie
momma’s got cherry pie
momma’s got cherry pie

momma's got cherry pie

now when I was 6 years old
I’d go walkin’ through the mountains
down in the great valleys
walkin’ along through the long grass with ma hands

one day I walked up to the great majestic river
and I saw the fish jumpin’
and there on the other side I saw a girl
with red hair and green eyes
and I fell in love with her straight away

I jumped in that river
and I swam to the other side
she helped me out
she said to me ma name’s suzanne

me and Suzanne became friends
and we spent all summer playin’ with each other
and I took her home to meet ma and pa
ma ma and pa loved suzanne
they loved her hard

ma momma cooked suzanne the best meal she’d ever had in her life
and Suzanne ate it all up
then I saw ma ma comin’ outta the kitchen with the desert

well well
she ate the pie and the girl had to die

momma's got cherry pie
mommas got cherry pie
momma’s got cherry pie
momma’s got cherry pie
no you're never gonna get ma
no you're never gonna get ma
momma's got cherry pie

well I turned 16 all ma schoolin’ was done
and a found a job at the local abbatore
life was good and I got paid
every day when I used to walk in there
I used to walk past this lady
she had blonde hair and red lips
and her name was deborah
she was about 10 years older than me
but she made me feel so special
we would go out at weekends walking
and she would take me into the woods
strip me down and milk me like a cow
she was beautiful and I felt I needed to marry her
so I took her home to meet ma ma and pa
my ma and pa loved deborah
they loved her hard
ma ma cooked deborah the best meal she’d ever had in her life and deborah ate it up like a pig
then I saw ma ma comin’ outta the kitchen with the desert

well well
she ate the pie and the girl had to die

momma's got cherry pie

don’t you ever get too close
to ma momma’s cherry pie
momma's got cherry pie
mommas got cherry pie

well it’s a kinda sad endin’ to this story
you see ma momma she stupidly took her pie to the local fair and I heard about it
and I walked down to the site and I could see all the white tents there
and I could see the home cookin’ right at the end
and I walk paste all those pygmy goats pygmy rate and little’ fuckin’ dogs
and I walked in there like I was walkin’ into the saloon
and I could see ma momma’s pie on the table
and all them judges hoverin’ around it like coyotes around a deer
and they were getting closer and closer to ma mommas juicy red drippin’ moist cherry pie
and I swung ma coat back and I pulled ma gun out and I took aim

well well
they ate the pie
and they all had to die

momma's got cherry pie
mommas got cherry pie
momma’s got cherry pie
momma’s got cherry pie

no you're never gonna get ma
