Jeremiah Tall - Coal Mining March Well, there's twenty-seven men on that picket line Keeping the men from the old coal mine Now mister Union man, please just let my poppy inside So he can trade his hours for a fist of dimes So he can trade his hours for a fist of dimes

Jeremiah Tall - Train Oh get back on that train Let it take you home again Oh get back on that train I'm not sure I can do this anymore This whistle blows through town to town These railroad crossing gates are closing down And we can't stop at every station Railroad man calls out "all aboard this train" Seeing you makes me weak Seeing you makes my knees shake She's the queen of this line When she's conducting This train of love is always on time Oh get back on that train Let it bring you home to me Oh get back on that train It's not the same with out you around here This house is filled with paint chipped walls There's dust collecting on your porcelain face dolls It's been three weeks since we last danced This full moon reminds me of when I first took your hand Seeing you makes me weak Seeing you makes my knees shake She's the queen of this line When she's conducting This train of love is always on time Right on time Right on time Right on time Right on time Oh get back on that train Let it bring you home to me Oh get back on that train It's not the same without you around This whistle blows through town to town These railroad crossing gates are closing down And we can stop at every station Railroad man calls out "next stop’s Jenkintown" Seeing you makes me weak Seeing you makes my knees shake She's the queen of this line When she's conducting This train of love is always on time Seeing you makes me weak Seeing you makes my knees shake

Jeremiah Tall - Where I Am I'd walk one hundred miles Through freezing cold, ice, sleet and rain I'd look to the heavens with Jesus in name I asked if heaven and hell were the same He said Here's my light for you You can do with it whatever you want to do Just know, that the devil will find you Tell me where I am old man Please tell me where I am Tell me where I am old man Please tell me where I am I saw him sitting on a park bench in the city He was looking up and laughing at the sky It was his ninety-first birthday If it was time for him to die he didn't mind He said Here's my light for you You can do with it whatever you want to do Just know, that the devil will find you Tell me where I am old man Please tell me where I am Tell me where I am old man Please tell me where I am Oh He said Here's my light for you You can do with it whatever you want to do Just know, that the devil will find you Tell me where I am old man Please tell me where I am Tell me where I am old man Please tell me where I am I saw him sitting in his favorite rocking chair And he said my boy, your home

Jeremiah Tall - Penn's Woods And I've been walking around this town Trying to find my way out And hitch myself a ride to a place west of here A place with a single road that runs straight south To the old folks home And the church in the north with the great stained glass windows I need to know is it hard To find my way back when I have been gone so long I don't even own the keys to the front door my childhood home And I need to know is it worth Every mile of this open road Will you help me get back on track to where need to get going Oh I’ll get going Oh I'll get going Old man Joe worked for years At the old farm house out on the edge of town The day has come for him to hang up his spurs I'm not sure if his ready to go But if he'd like I'll drive him home To that big white house on the southern part of town I'm not sure what it is to me But every time I see Joe I see a part of me Will I know when it's my time to go Oh I’ll get going Oh I'll get going I know That it's a long way to go When your home you will know If it's worth the trip I know That it's a long way to go When your home you will know If it's worth the trip And I've been walking around this town Trying to find my way back to my childhood home on the east cost Back to the great Pennsylvania woods The small town with the neighborhood kids Playing ghost in the grave yard Run run run Run Old man Joe taught me a lot You got one life so live the one you got And don't spend your days with one foot out the door And if you got some place better to be Please go don't waste it on me ‘Cause this may be your only opportunity Oh I’ll get going Oh I'll get going Oh I’ll get going Oh I'll be gone

Jeremiah Tall - The Devil and Daved I was walking down by the river I saw a woman who prayed through song and dance I wondered has she ever seen the Devil I've been made into a fool but is never take that chance I cried Hey lady Have you ever made sin Have you ever played with voodoo dolls and pins She walked up and sat down She began to tell me the story of the Devil and Daved Oh Daved was a stable boy Who worked all night and day And he fell hard for a girl Who God said stay away And he didn't have any money And he didn't have any luck And he never quite got those looks that he wants I cried Hey Daved Have you ever made sin Have you ever played with voodoo dolls and pins Well he sold his soul And he sold his land And he sold his soul for that love he never had Now Daved he'd have some regrets Well he had the woman he loved but now was in debt Oh he and his wife They had a beautiful boy But when they went to name him well the Devil stood poised He said Daved I gave you love Daved you signed in blood Daved you owe me your first born son I cried Hey Daved Don't you ever made sin Don't you ever played with voodoo dolls and pins Now Daved oh he’d have a choice He could run like hell or fight the Devil for his boy Well, he reached into his deck Throw down his best And the Devil was shocked and stunned with what he saw He said Daved I never rest And on the day of your final breath I'll be there to take you down to hell Well you might fool the Devil for a minute but it never ends well Well you might fool the Devil for a minute but you'll end up in hell Oh

Jeremiah Tall - Bleed Please catch me before I fall ‘Cause I don't want to show the world My true colors on my sleeves Have mercy on me please ‘Cause a man on his knees, is not a man at all His just a beggar looking for a reprieve of the law Please don't close your book on me I'll surely bleed Please wake me from this yawn ‘Cause I don't want to show the world That I stand on weak knees Have mercy on me please ‘Cause a man on weak knees, is not a man at all His broken, beaten down, looking for relief that's all Please don't walk out on me I'll surely bleed It always seems to me there's more work to be done And how can I keep up with that rise and setting sun It always seems to me there's another hole to be dug How can I dig deep when that soils turn to mud on me Oh on me I'll surely bleed It'll take more than this It'll take more than this To make me give in to you Oh oh oh Please stop me before I talk ‘Cause I don't want to tell the world Just how I feel about them all So have mercy on me please ‘Cause a man in deep thought, is not a man at all He's just a question looking for a quick resolute that's all Please don't hang up on me I'll surely bleed It always seems to me there's more work to be done And how can I keep up with that rise and setting sun It always seems to me there's another hole to be dug How can I dig deep when that soils turn to mud on me Oh on me I'll surely bleed Oh
