Track Name: The Devil's Garden
There’s a garden the Devil owns
Her roots run deep, her story old

Didn’t have mischief on my mind
Til I saw her ruby red light
The grapes of wrath, a dancing flame
Jezabelling lowly moths who stray

Her price is high but it looks free
The Devil’s Garden got its claws on me

Here I go again, always playing in
The Devil’s Garden
Welcomed like a friend, I do my reveling in
The Devil’s Garden

A kind gatekeeper let me through
Friendly faces that’s how they get you
With silken chains she drew me in
And now I beg to do her every whim

I can’t find the exit gate
The Devil’s Garden blinds all who play

Here I go again always playing in
The Devil’s Garden
She is not my friend, but still I revel in
The Devil’s Garden

She dresses for her company
Just to hide her wolf like teeth
She has a way to keep your eyes
Fixed on her and filled with desire

Here I go again, I’m always playing in
The Devil’s Garden

Here I go again, always playing in
The Devil’s Garden
Welcomed like a friend, I do my reveling in
The Devil’s Garden

Here I go again, always playing in
The Devil’s Garden

Here I go again always playing in
The Devil’s Garden
She is not my friend, but still I revel in
The Devil’s Garden

There’s a garden the Devil owns
Her roots run deep, her story old
Track Name: Trying to Pray
Oh Lord I’m trying to pray
It’s been so long I don’t know what to say
Oh Lord I’m trying to pray
It’s been so long I don’t know what to say

I’ve been a freeloading fool,
Living for selfish gain
I don’t deserve forgiveness,
But I know I wanna change
Now I’m down in a deep black pit,
Wiping away my tears
There’s no light there’s no sound,
If I ask Lord will you hear

Oh Lord I’m trying to pray
It’s been so long I don’t know what to say
Only you can lift me up
And take away this bitter cup
I’m down, I’m down so far down
So far down, So far down

I’ve never felt so high,
Down here on bended knee
Lift me up in your time Lord,
I want to know you and believe
The only way is up now,
I know it’s a long long climb
And if I fall again,
Will you catch me this time

Oh Lord I’m trying to pray
It’s been so long I don’t know what to say
Only you can lift me up
And take away this bitter cup
I’m down, I’m down so far down
So far down, So far down

I’d lost the will to live
I thought the end was nigh
Then a star from the heaven’s fell
And I knew you’d heard my cry

Oh Lord I’m trying to pray
It’s been so long I don’t know what to say
Oh Lord I’m trying to pray
It’s been so long I don’t know what to say

Oh Lord I’m trying to pray
It’s been so long I don’t know what to say
Only you can lift me up
And take away this bitter cup
I’m down, I’m down so far down
So far down, So far down
Track Name: Down the River
C’mon Darlin’ take my hand
I think its time we put to bed
All the lonesome guilty chains
Best leave’em on the riverbank
Leave’em on the riverbank

Ain’t no crops to grow around here
We’ve sown plenty, we’ve shed our tears
Oh the clouds are back its getting rough
Let’s sing Liza Jane and cuddle up
Sing Liza Jane and cuddle up

Down the river, the long long river,
to Pontchartrain or Toulouse
Got nothing planned, ‘except being ur man
and writing sweet billets-doux
Down the river, the Mississippi river,
sipping on southern shine
And holding ur had to a far better land,
I’ll love ya til river runs dry
I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry

You can bask in the warm summer rain
I’ll catch lightning bugs along the way
There’s a whole lot more for us on downstream
My jole blon you’ll always be
My jole blon you’ll always be

Down the river, the long long river,
to Pontchartrain or Toulouse
Got nothing planned, ‘except being ur man
and writing sweet billets-doux
Down the river, the Mississippi river,
sipping on southern shine
And holding ur had to a far better land,
I’ll love ya til river runs dry
I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry

Oh the rivers wide, Oh the rivers deep
Oh the rivers wide, Oh the rivers deep

Down the river, the long long river,
to Pontchartrain or Toulouse
Got nothing planned, ‘except being ur man
and writing sweet billets-doux
Down the river, the Mississippi river,
sipping on southern shine
And holding ur had to a far better land,
I’ll love ya til river runs dry
I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry
I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry

Down the river, the long long river,
down the river we go
Down the river, the long long river,
down the river we go
Down the river, the long long river
