Watching the red moon rise Going right up into the sky The world it’s turning, the moon it’s burning Watching the red moon rise Slipping through the dark tree line Way above the old jack pine The moon it’s rising, I hear the cries of Some cat who’s locked outside Not good or bad, not right or wrong The moon it just do, what it does And rises up (and rises up) The moon looks hurtin’ bright It’s a chasing back the night And the shadows crawl, along the shore A’creeping from the light There’s a misty moonlit haze Rolling all across the bay We’ve got the magic rolling, and moment’s stolen Have come here to this place

I'm Here 04:14
I’m here, in the dream of your quiet night I’m here, with the hope of each morning sun I’m here, when the wind and the rain Try to blow your castles away And I’ll still be here, when you’ve done your day I’m here, like the rose on a winter’s day I’m here, when the spider’s webs are spun I’m here, when you’re wishing that all Of the false words would fall away And I’ll still be here, when you’ve done your day We once wandered through fields Playing with milkweed pods Sending out our wishes on the wind Assured of all the riches this would bring I’m here, when you’re trying out a new road I’m here, when a new light moves you on I’m here, oh I’ll be holding you close If you’re caught in the shivering cold And I’ll still be here, when you shine like gold With all that’s been going on, I tell you it’s all right The only things that matter in the end Are the simple things like you were my friend It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right Oh it’s really all right The only things that matter in the end Are the simple things like you were my friend

From the depths of northern lights Red shoes, kill blues Wear ‘em well and keep on moving Ancient dreams and sacred rites Old days, some lost ways Take it in and keep on moving on keep moving Take it in and keep on moving Weathered fences painted white Huck Finn, he’s a good friend Read his lines & keep on moving on keep moving Read his lines and keep on moving Jealous crows and shiny brides On track, don’t look back Round again, to get it right Shine the light and keep on moving on keep moving Dirty towns and diamond mines Black coal, big toll Bless the souls and keep on moving on keep moving Bless the souls and keep on moving Crossroads coming, hold on tight Shine the light and keep on moving Shine the light and keep on moving Shine the light

I climbed a lot of mountains, there’s nothing I ain’t tried Crossed over seven seas, all in one big stride Even found a way, to get past space and time The only thing that mattered was to free this heart of mine So come and rock my heart, roll me in a sea of love Rock me all the time Rock my heart, roll me in a sea of love Come rock this heart of mine I had a lot of doctors, poke me black and blue They took away my blood, and analyzed me too Didn’t make a difference, no matter what they tried Cause all that really mattered was to free this heart of mine It’s static in here honey, c’mon let’s head outside We’ll go and find a breaker and get moving with the tide I need some agitation, oh it’s time to rock’n’roll And get some palpitation happening way down in my soul

Parry Sound 03:27
Oh honey won’t you come walk with me Get off the hot tar road, wander off with me We’ll climb high upon the rock Oh honey, won’t you come and walk We’ll head on down, the old lake road Pass the bend where the Seguin flows Take backwood trails, that call our soul In this home I know as Parry Sound Oh honey won’t you come ride with me Maybe pack a chute, and fly with me The water is never too wide Oh honey, won’t you come and ride We’ll cruise around, take in the air The warm wild wind, blowing through our hair Around the bay, to who knows where We’re gonna ride, ride, ride ‘til the sun goes down At night we’ll lie, upon the shore Black velvet sky, pine needle floor We’ll slip on in, through heaven’s door Into deep, sweet dreams in Parry Sound Oh honey, won’t you come away with me To the water’s edge, by the bay with me Spending forever and a day Oh honey, won’t you come away To the water’s edge, by the bay

There’s so much more, I want to say to you Will there ever be the chance There’s so much more, I want to share with you Another day, another song, another dance Come on we’ll take one more turn Whirling about on the dance floor Changing our lives a little bit more Before heading out, through the door So many beautiful moments we’ve shared Places that we’ve yet to see Building our castles and living on prayer Come and dance, to the beat, of your dream Thank you for all the joy you’ve brought The magic we found ‘neath the stars Thank you for staying true to your heart Even when our fortunes seemed far away Shelter in the bonds of love Through the winds and the hurricanes May you always find new roads To bring you back home, once again

I remember when you shook my stars above Lassoed my heart in your tangled love I was reeling in confusion and loss And then I paused That’s when I turned my light on Turned my light on, I turned my light on And found my heart, when I turned my light on Sometimes I’m walking through the dark Shadows in smiling camouflage Sidle up to me, feeding on doubt I just want out That’s when I turn my light on, I turn my light on, I turn my light on, And find my heart, when I turn my light on Because the light in our hearts, shines near, shines far Oh the magic starts, when I turn my light on Clouds holding heavy with snow Stray flakes by my window Daylight fades, evening falls Friends call That’s when I turn my light on, I turn my light on, I turn my light on The magic starts, when I turn my light on Turn my light on, turn my light on I turn my light on

Get on Home 03:40
Jagged branches and black crows Broken walls where the wind blows River stopped when the ice froze And it’s cold, ah yes it’s cold And the only thing you want is to get on home Hmmm mmm, just to get on home The only thing you want is to get on home Where loving arms will softly hold you Lonesome road and the sky’s gray Endless crowds in a strange place Through your tears you can touch grace And you pray, ah yes you pray I’ve walked this road such a long time With some Guy Clark, a little John Prine Each song takes you further in its own time And you walk, this ground you walk

Head thrown back, voice rings out Freest man I’ve ever seen Blue eyes beaming, the light of the stars Bathed in the light of your song Take us along, sailing upon the new Hudson River With your banjo and song Rising up strong, voices in song, old heavens shiver The poison be gone The Clearwater, keeps sailing on The trials you’ve known, turned some to stone But you could not compromise The truth you hold, could never be sold It’s keeping the shine in your eyes Take us along, sailing upon the new Hudson River With your banjo and song Rising up strong, voices in song, old heavens shiver The poison be gone The Clearwater, keeps sailing on The light of the truth, the joy it brings Knows no borders or walls The hammer, the bell, the song you sing Reaches the hearts of us all

When I’m with you, the love just flows Love flows, when I’m with you When I’m with you, the love just flows Love flows when I’m with you When I’m with you, the joy just grows Joy grows, when I’m with you When I’m with you, the joy just grows Joy grows when I’m with you When I’m with you, when I’m with you When I’m with you, the joy just grows Joy grows when I’m with you Love flows, joy grows, blue skies, when I’m with you We’re keeping our soul’s flame alive Not letting go not letting love die Not letting go not letting love die Holding on with the breath of our song With the breath of our song When I’m with you, the love just flows Love flows, when I’m with you When I’m with you, the love just flows Love flows when I’m with you When I’m with you, when I’m with you When I’m with you

I was a young innocent by the side of the road Big trucks rolling by, you stopped the wheels of your rig Long enough to say, “Hop on board – let’s ride” I heard rifles shoot out from the woods up ahead Magazines let loose, “It’s an ambush!” you screamed I said, “I’ve got your back; I’ve got you covered, it’s alright” And it was roses and thunder down at roadkill junction What was a poor girl to do Playing it cool, taking bullets for you So I grabbed the wheel, barrelled down the blacktop My foot hard on the gas, eyes fixin’ ahead Not knowing where to, just getting us, out of there I came into this mission wearing holy cloaks I heard your cry for protection, the air stank of danger With fierce trepidation, I was going for higher ground And it’s been ten long years on that road I’m finally finding my way back home And it was roses and thunder, yeah Roses and thunder, hmmmnn Roses and thunder, that’s how I remember you That’s how I remember you
12.
Oh you and I, we walked down Strawberry Lane, together Drinking in that old moon in the sky I met you at the Lone Star Café I was coming from nowhere, halfway to somewhere You were heading my way Our dusty trail, came alive With the dreams we found to sow We planted and picked ‘em, sometimes we baked ‘em And served ‘em up à la mode Oh you and I, we walked down Strawberry Lane, together Drinking in that old moon in the sky But did we reach a fault line in our hearts? Did we hit the spot, where love stopped And we could not get across Now I’m back at the Café, on my own Destination Turkeypoint or Rome Staring aimlessly, my plate empty Do I text or telephone? Whoa honey, why don’t we give it one more try Why don’t we see if you and I can still light up That old moon way up high And once again, we’ll walk down Strawberry Lane, together Drinking in that old moon Drinking in that old moon Drinking in that old moon in the sky

Rising Tide 03:41
A sailor’s gone deep in the fog Rocky shoals, direction lost The sun will come, the mist can clear Will our sailor reappear? A rising tide, a rising tide Time to hold on, time to let go Time to find, the greater flow Currents swell, old ways fall Surrender to it all A rising tide, a rising tide A quiet storm from deep inside, a rising tide A rising tide, hmmm A glint in the eye, a smile in the soul Can spark the heart, make things whole Set your course, shine your star True to who you are You raise the tide, you raise us all When this moment’s gone, when the day is done How will we remember our time? Who was first or last? Or the love we shared? A rising tide, a rising tide A rising tide, a rising tide, a rising tide A rising tide, a rising tide A rising tide, a rising tide, a rising tide A rising tide, raises us all
