Track Name: Motherland
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
Track Name: Rainmaker
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
Track Name: Crossing the Bar
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.
