Motherland 02:29
Atlantic waters don’t forget to kiss your lover Before you wash up on the coastal line Lady liberty with a halo around her head Seven seas and seven worlds align Your not my motherland Your not my motherland Providence was what they said would guide me further When I washed up on the coastal line Ticket taker seems to think that I’m unworthy Hey man just let me slip on by Your not my motherland Your not my motherland Atlantic waters don’t forget to kiss your lover Before you wash up on the coastal line
Rainmaker 02:22
Wind blows from the north to the south on the great pastoral plains It’s not a prayer or some magic hoax that makes the fields turn green He came down from Burlington on a train he boarded last week And the Rainmaker will make for us, sweet soft summer rain It’s a lonely life just telling lies to the people who want what’s good So the Rainmaker went to a hotel out west and ended his rainmaking days And the people weren’t saved and the flocks wasted away and all the crops were turned to hay And the people started to pray for sweet soft summer rain
Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I go out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar.
