I ONCE HAD A MULIE COW, MULIE WHEN SHE’S BORN TOOK A JAY BIRD FORTY YEARS TO FLY FROM HORN TO HORN
COFFEE GROWS ON THE WHITE OAK TREE, THE RIVER FLOWS WITH BRANDY
THE ROCKS ON THE HILLS ARE COVERED WITH GOLD
AND THE GIRLS ARE SWEETER THAN CANDY
EVERY TIME I TAKE THAT ROAD IT’S ALWAYS DARK AND CLOUDY
EVERY TIME I SEE THAT GIRL I ALWAYS TELL HER HOWDY DID YOU THINK MY LITTLE MISS THAT I COULD LIVE WITHOUT YOU
I’LL LET YOU KNOW BEFORE I GO, I HEAR SO LITTLE ABOUT YOU

OLD HOME PLACE
Mitchell Jayne/Dean Webb
IT’S BEEN TEN LONG YEARS SINCE I LEFT MY HOME IN THE HOLLOW WHERE I WAS BORN
WHERE THE COOL FALL NIGHTS MAKE THE WOOD SMOKE RISE
AND A FOX HUNTER BLEW HIS HORN

I RAN AWAY TO CHARLOTTESVILLE AND WORKED IN A SAWMILL CREW
CHORUS:
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO THE OLD HOME PLACE WHY DID THEY TEAR IT DOWN
AND WHY DID I LEAVE THE PLOW IN THE FIELD AND LOOK FOR A JOB IN THE TOWN
WELL THE GIRL RAN OFF WITH SOMEBODY ELSE THE TAVERNS TOOK ALL MY PAY
AND HERE I STAND WHERE THE OLD HOME STOOD BEFORE THEY TOOK IT AWAY (chorus)
NOW THE GEESE FLY SOUTH AND THE COLD WIND MOANS AS I STAND HERE AND HANG MY HEAD
I’VE LOST MY LOVE, I’VE LOST MY HOME
AND NOW I WISH THAT I WAS DEAD (chorus)

WELL I ASKED MY CAPTAIN FOR THE TIME OF DAY SAID HE THROWED HIS WATCH AWAY
A LONG STEEL RAIL AND A SHORT CROSS TIE I’M ON MY WAY BACK HOME
LITTLE GIRL, LITTLE GIRL, WHAT HAVE I DONE THAT MAKES YOU TREAT ME SO
YOU CAUSED ME TO WEEP YOU CAUSED ME TO ROAM YOU CAUSED ME TO LEAVE MY HOME

MAN OF CONSTANT SORROW
I AM A MAN OF CONSTANT SORROW I’VE SEEN TROUBLE ALL MY DAYS I BID FAREWELL TO OLD KENTUCKY
THE STATE WHERE I WAS BORN AND RAISED

IT’S FARE-YOU-WELL MY NATIVE COUNTRY AND THE PLACES I HAVE LOVED SO WELL FOR I HAVE SEEN ALL KINDS OF TROUBLE IN THIS CRUEL WORLD NO TONGUE CAN TELL
MAYBE YOUR FRIENDS THINK I’M A STRANGER MY FACE YOU’LL NEVER SEE NO MORE

THERE IS A TIME R. Dillard/M. Jayne
THERE IS A TIME FOR LOVE AND LAUGHTER THE DAYS WILL PASS LIKE SUMMER STORMS THE WINTER WINDS WILL FOLLOW AFTER BUT THERE IS LOVE AND LOVE IS WARM
THERE IS A TIME FOR US TO WANDER WHEN TIME IS YOUNG AND SO ARE WE THE WOODS ARE GREENER OVER YONDER THE PATH IS NEW, THE WORLD IS FREE
THERE IS A TIME WHEN LEAVES ARE FALLING THE WOODS ARE GRAY, THE PATHS ARE OLD
THE SNOW WILL COME WHEN GEESE ARE CALLIN’ WE’LL NEED A FIRE AGAINST THE COLD
SOMEWHERE YOU’RE ROAMING IN THE SPRINGTIME AND YOU’LL FIND YOUR LOVE IN THE SUMMER SUN THE FROST WILL COME AND BRING THE HARVEST AND YOU CAN SLEEP WHEN DAY IS DONE
