Track Name: The Pineywoods Are Singin' Our Song
The Pineywoods Are Singin' Our Song
Words & Music by Lynn Adler & Lindy Hearne

1.
Raindrops fallin’ on a tin-roof cabin all through the night.
Water risin’ in the mornin’ – but we’re gonna be alright.
Cause the sun still shines when the rain stops comin’ down.
We’re still here, and the world’s still turning round.

2.
Sunlight fall-in’ on the ground through the sweet gums and pines.
See the glimmers on the water how they shimmer and shine.
And those two rusty old metal chairs by the old rock pond.
We’ll find some comfort there when the day is done.

Chorus:
The piney woods are singin’ our song.
The piney woods are singin’ our song.
Oh, hard times will come again, but love will never end.
The piney woods are singin’ our song.

3.
Two hearts fallen on a hot summer night so long time ago.
And even if we knew then what we’re thinkin’ that we now know.
We’d still wade through the troubled waters to the other side. .
Where we dance under the stars and hold on tight. (Chorus)

4.
There’s a windy old trail that calls your name and mine.
Where we tend to the tangled up branches and the wild grape vines.
And we walk down to the spillway of our tears.
To count our many blessings through the years. (Chorus)
Track Name: Summer of Love
Summer of Love
Words & Music by Lynn Adler & Lindy Hearne

1.
I opened my eyes and saw her there.
A smile on her face and beads in her hair.
A hint of patchouli in the midnight air.
Living our dreams without any cares.

2.
We had holes in our dreams - patches on our souls.
We had each other and we lost control.
Made our wishes on a shooting star.
Found peace and comfort in my old guitar.

Chorus:
Summer of love - summer of love. Summer of love - summer of love.

3,
We were lookin’ for somethin’ - it was almost found.
Went swimmin’ in the river and we almost drowned.
I found my soul on a Blue Moon night.
Howlin’ to the man 'cause it just felt right.

4.
Down in New Orleans with nothin’ to eat.
Got messed up down on Bourbon Street.
We never looked back - couldn't see ahead.
Didn’t want no war - wanted peace instead. (Chorus)

Reprise 1.
I opened my eyes and saw her there.
A smile on her face and beads in her hair. (Chorus)
Track Name: Soul Lover
Soul Lover
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne & Hal Greenwood

1.
Baby, you’re the lover of my soul.
In your arms I long to lie.
I feel the healing waters roll.
Whenever you come by.

Chorus:
Soul lover – I love the things you do.
Soul lover – I only want to be with you.

2.
When the storms of life break over me,
There’s shelter in your embrace.
When it’s so dark I cannot see,
There’s light in your sweet face. (Chorus)

Bridge:
Take me up – take me up, baby. I’m sinking without your kiss.
Take me up – take me up, baby. It’s your passion that I miss.

3.
Please never leave me on my own.
No matter what the future brings.
The only place I want to be,
Is in the shadow of your wings. (Chorus)
Track Name: Simpatico
Simpatico
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
I’m a little worn and ragged - a little worse for wear.
A few small holes and a nick or two - in need of some repair.
You still pick me - every night.
Makin’ some noise – holdin’ me tight. You still pick me.

2.
I’m a little old and haggard - a little broken too.
When I feel your hands touching me - I almost feel brand new.
You still pick me - every day.
In your own - tender way. You still pick me.

Chorus:
After all - still got a patch or two.
In these old thin walls - but it don’t matter to you.
We got simpatico. And I think you know,
You could never let me go.

3.
I’m a little scarred and wounded - but there’s a healing in your touch.
There’s a peace that comes right over me - when I feel your love this much
You still pick me – all the time.
Playing our song – watching it rhyme. You still pick me. (Chorus)

Instrumental (Chorus)

4.
I’m a little scarred and wounded - but there’s a healing in your touch.
There’s a peace that comes right over me - when I feel your love this much
You still pick me - a box of wood.
Stringing you along - you knew that I would. You still pick me.
You still pick me. You still pick me.
Track Name: Blue Plate Special
The Blue Plate Special
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
Went out for some ham hocks.
Lookin for cabbage too.
I could already smell the cornbread.
But I imagined the taste of you.

Chorus:
The blue plate special, the blue plate special.
Blue, just thinking' of you.

2.
It was heatin’ up in the kitchen.
I ordered the soup of the day.
When the waitress brought it to me.
I knew exactly what to say,

"The blue plate special, the blue plate special."
Blue, just thinkin' of you.

Bridge:
I’ll never be satisfied, at least I don’t know how,
With these crumbs before me now.

3.
Eggs fryin on the griddle.
Hash browns sizzlin’ for real.
Coffee hot and creamy.
Never 'sausage' a meal.

The blue plate special, the blue plate special.
Blue, just thinkin' of you.
Blue, just thinkin' of you.
Track Name: Ghost of Route 66
Ghost of Route 66
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne and Hal Greenwood

1.
I met her in Chicago 30 years ago today.
She said she had to get outta town all the way to West L.A.
Blew south through Joliet. Gassed up in Odell.
Past the Chain of Rocks in Saint Louie,
Like the fabled bat outta hell.

Chorus:
Headin' out west to the coast.
Takin' a chance. Makin' the most.
To the cities and the sticks.
Ridin' on the Ghost of Route 66.

2.
We crossed into Oklahoma.
Waved at the Big Blue Whale.
All the time she was tellin' me,
Some sorta traveler's tale.
West beyond the Red Round Barn,
All the way to the U-Drop-Inn
In dusty Shamrock, Texas - where the real frontier begins. (Chorus)


Bridge:
It was there I knew she loved me.
It was there I loved her too.
The Mother Road made promises,
Like all fast lovers do.

3.
It was in New Mexico,
Right about the Great Divide,
I began to think this strange long trip
Had some mysteries to hide.
We made it through Arizona.
Needles, where the heat is severe.
Only to have her disappear
On the Santa Monica pier. (Chorus)
Track Name: Take Me Back, Pineywoods
Take Me Back, Pineywoods
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
My Mama used to talk about East Texas.
‘Bout living on a farm near Sulphur Springs.
A sharecropper’s family, always movin'.
Underneath her breath she’d often sing.

Chorus:
Pineywoods, pineywoods. Take me back, pineywoods.
Pineywoods, pineywoods. Take me back, pineywoods.

2.
Cotton pickin’ all the daylight hours.
The money in Fort Worth looked might good.
One day they loaded up and headed westward.
But in their hearts were planted pineywoods. (Chorus)

3.
I believe the Piney Woods are part of Heaven.
I’ve found a little place that calls my name.
Someday I’ll walk with Mama on some pine straw,
On the trail that leads us back from where we came. (Chorus)
Track Name: The Bowery
The Bowery
Words & Music by Lynn Adler & Lindy Hearne

1.
Across the road from the Winnsboro Depot,
Street lanterns shone through the dust.
Down on The Bowery boardwalks,
Lined with lumberjacks, liquor and lust.

The air, it smelled of horses,
Kerosene and coal.
And the gamblers took their chances.
Took this boom town on a roll.

The corner saloon called “Massel’s”
Had a stuffed alligator on the wall.
And those bawdy boys smoke nickel cigars,
'n' drank moonshine ‘til “last call!”

Chorus:
The Bowery was on Market Street - thirteen saloons and more.
Wild cards, roulette and spirits - behind each swinging door.
Down on The Bowery. On The Bowery!

2.
One late night down at Massel’s,
In a backroom game of chance,
The Pyne boys beat Bud Taylor
And his pistol made them dance.

“Up against the wall, you two.
I’m givin’ you the boot!”
He shot ‘em dead and hopped his horse.
The posse in hot pursuit.

But their ponies could not catch him.
He rode a fiery steed.
A Kentucky long-leg stretch horse
Is all an outlaw needs. (Chorus)

3.
According to the legend,
Bud was never seen again.
But the calaboose stayed busy
With its share of lawless men.

The nineteen-seven shootout
Really brought The Bowery down.
It left four men lyin’ dead
Near the very heart of town.

Folks had their fill of saloons and bars,
And the all-night drunken brawl.
So by nineteen-ten they closed ‘em down.
And The Bowery took the fall. (Chorus)
Track Name: When They Sing
When They Sing
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
They lie around the yard with nothing much to do.
Barely move a muscle 'til they hear a sound or two.
Some say they're worthless mutts. Dumb as they can be.
Sniffin' round the ground. Lookin' for a tree.

But sometimes there’s a special night. They look up to the skies.
Then it starts to happen. The moon is in their eyes...

Chorus:
When they sing -- it sends them back
To another place in time -- they were young and full of life.
Now they dream. It's hard remembering.
But their song it won’t let go,
So they let their spirits show when they sing …

2.
They hang around the home with nothing much to say.
Barely move a muscle 'til the next meal comes their way.
They used to sing together. Their harmonies were gold.
The prime of their lives. Then they just got old.

But sometimes there’s a special light. It comes as a surprise.
He takes her hand in his. She looks into his eyes... (Chorus)

Bridge:
They think of their two dogs.
The forest and the frogs.
The garden and the lake.
They've learned to give and take.
As a husband and a wife,
They have a real good life! (Chorus)
Track Name: Rain Dreams
Rain Dreams
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne & Hal Greenwood

1.
Rain - can't seem to stop the rain.
Fallin' softly on my memories
Of another rainy day.

2.
Sighs - like wind beneath the rain.
Stir feelings that were dim to me,
Like trees too old to sway,

Chorus:
Who will stop the rain? Who will still the wind
That blows me back to you?

Instrumental

3.
Light - just a little light
Is all I need to end this dream
For at least another night.

4.
Dreams - dreams of rain and sighs.
Of love and distant memories.
Warm winds and lover’s eyes. (Chorus & Reprise 1)
Track Name: Radioland
Radioland
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne & Hal Greenwood

1.
I was born in Radioland.
Ears wide open and the dial in my hand.
Anything the ether could whisper at my fingertips.
I would hear Joni Mitchell sing
Of clouds and taxis as guitar chords ring.
And the murmur of electric kisses would brush my lips.

Come in. Come in. Come in, Sargent Pepper.
Come in. Come in. Wilson Pickett, you old high stepper.
Come in!

2.
Ridin’ the winds of Radioland
At the field behind the concession stand.
From the back seat, you could hear “On the Dock of the Bay.”
Skippin’ over a little static and noise,
John Sebastian and the rest of the boys
Heat up the "Summer in the City" with the things they say

Come in. Come in. Come in, Bobby and Joan
Come in. Come in. Come in “Like a Rollin’ Stone.”
Come in!

3.
Oh, the endless signals of Radioland
Scatter on the shores of stars like sand.
It’s all out there more that eight miles high.
If I could just hear those songs once.
Let those speakers quaver and roar
Maybe I’d get another glimpse of “Lucy in the Sky”

Come in. Come in. Come in, Elvis and Hank.
Come in. Come in. Come in, The Left Banke.
Come in!

Reprise 1.

Come in. Come in. Come in, “Good Golly Miss Molly.”
Come in. Come in. Come in, Buddy Holly.
Come in. Come in. Come in, Janice and Grace.
Come in. Come in. Come in every small face.
Come in. Come in. Come in, “Monster Mash.”
Come in. Come in. Come in, Johnny Cash.
Come in. Come in. Come in!
Track Name: Pickin' My Favorites
Pickin' My Favorites
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
I don't have a favorite movie.
I love all my dogs the same.
And when it comes to songs
There're just too many to name.

So every night I make a list.
It’s got to be just right.
And that’s the way I like it.
Pickin' my favorites every night.

Chorus:
I pick 'em high.
I pick 'em low.
I pick 'em fast.
I pick 'em slow.
I pick 'em left.
I pick 'em right.
Pickin' my favorites
Every night!

2.
I have a favorite friend.
He’s right here by my side.
When I count my blessings,
I have ‘em far and wide.

When I write a new song
And It starts to feel just right,
I play it for my friends.
Pickin’ my favorites every night! (Chorus)

Instrumental

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: Making a Memory
Making A Memory
Words & Music by Lynn Adler

Chorus:
We are all brothers and sisters, the world is our family,
We are all gathered together, making a memory.

1.
We may not speak the same language,
We may not see eye to eye,
But that’s the reason we’re here, cause we’re gonna try. (Chorus)

2.
Tal vez no hablamos el mismo idioma,
Tal vez no estamos de acuerdo.
Por eso estamos aqui, y trataremos. (Chorus)

Bridge:
We laugh and we cry, say hello, say goodbye.
May we be friends until we meet again. (Chorus)

Tag ending:
Making a memory, making a memory.
Una memoria. Making a memory.
Hermanos y hermanas. Making a memory.
We may not speak the same language.
We may not see eye to eye.
But that's the reason we're here.
And we're gonna try.
Yeah, we're gonna try...
Track Name: Morning Watch
Morning Watch
Words & Music by Lynn Adler & Lindy Hearne

1.
As fog lifts off the lake and morning sun burns through the longleaf pines, I sigh.
Yesterday just slips away, and worries of tomorrows wave goodbye.
I hear Spring all around me as God's creatures wake the forest with their song.
The music stirs the slumber of my soul, and begs the heart to sing along.

2.
I stumble on the rocky path with many doubts, and go there just the same.
I almost see the older ones who sat beneath the trees along the way.
I feel the passion of each moment as I watch the gentle woodlands sway.
My soul surrenders to this timeless trail of ancient memories this day.

Ooh -- ooh. Ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.

3.
I question many things in life that bring me to this narrow winding path.
My scattered thoughts are flapping wings that hardly stop to even take a breath.
I long to swim with otters simply making every playful moment last.
And fly as Great Blue Heron over longleaf virgin forests of our past.

Ooh -- ooh. Ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
Ooh -- ooh. Ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
Track Name: It's In Your Hands
It's In Your Hands
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
I want to help.
I stumble through.
My will is strong,
But it won't do.
In You I seek
A place to go,
To find the love
That I don't hold.

Chorus:
It's in Your hands
Not mine.
Your will be done
In time.
We have ideas.
We make our plans.
But in the end,
It's in Your hands.

2.
I want to fix
A broken soul.
But only You
Can make it whole.
I follow You
Into the night.
When I lose my way
I hold on tight. (Chorus)

Bridge:
Not the fathers
Or the mothers,
The sisters
Or the brothers,
The friends
Or the lovers,
Can even start
To change a heart (Chorus)
Track Name: River of Peace
River of Peace
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
River of peace, flow through me.
River of peace, flow through me.
When hatred rises up
Please fill me from your cup.
River of peace, flow through me.

Alleluia, alleluia!
River of peace flow through me.

2.
River of peace, take my hand.
River of peace, take my hand.
When sorrow holds my soul
May your soothing waters flow.
River of peace, take my hand.

Alleluia, alleluia!
River of peace take my hand.

3.
River of peace, call my name.
River of peace, call my name.
And when my heart feels torn
Your voice can calm the storm.
River of peace, call my name.

Alleluia, alleluia
River of peace call my name

Verse 1 reprise
Track Name: The Legacy
The Legacy
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne and Lisa Aschmann
Based on the writings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

1.
In completely equal portions,
There is God within us all.
However we feel mighty;
However we feel small.

Chorus:
Everyone is an heir to the legacy
Of dignity and worth.
The stamp of the Creator
Is in us from our birth.
And each of us is priceless;
Someday this thought may cross the earth.
Everyone is an heir to the legacy
Of dignity and worth.

We’re not animated tools.
We’re no here for what we do.
Not intellect, not race,
Nor position is our truth. (Chorus)

Bridge:
Our worth is a legacy.
A gift that can’t be bought.
When we disrespect each other,
We abuse the image of God. (Chorus)

Tag:
Everyone is an heir to the legacy.
Everyone is an heir to the legacy.
Everyone is an heir to the legacy.
Track Name: Precious in the Eyes
Precious in the Eyes
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
She’s on the street again.
Will she never see the end?
Another night alone with someone new.
And she can play the part
To hide a broken heart.
You hurry past so she won’t call on you. But she's...

Chorus:
...Precious in the eyes of Jesus.
Precious in the eyes of a king.
When will you realize,
The one you criticize
Is precious in the eyes of Jesus?

2.
Old beyond his years,
He’s learned to hide the tears.
At 12, he’s tough enough to fool his friends.
They know him downtown well,
And he’s put his dad through hell.
There’s nothin’ good that you can see in him. But he’s (Chorus)

3.
Trapped within a shell.
Someone you don’t know well;
A person you would rather just ignore.
Someone who always falls,
And you have no love at all.
So you just keep him locked behind a door, but you're (Chorus)

Final Chorus:
We’re precious in the eyes of Jesus.
Precious in the eyes of a king.
When will we realize,
The ones we criticize
Are precious in the eyes of Jesus?
Track Name: Do Justice, Love Mercy
Do Justice, Love Mercy
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne and Lisa Aschmann

1.
From the time that I was ten to the day that he died,
I will never forget when I was first baptized.
My Papa took me down to the shallow of the lake,
And as he dunked my head I heard my preacher papa say...

Do Justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.
Do Justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.

2.
When I was eighteen, I went away to school.
There were many new faces and not a lot of rules.
I’ll admit that sometimes I got carried away,
But I always came back to what my Daddy had to say... (Chorus)

Bridge:
And now as I look at my daughter of four,
Echoes of my youth stand outside my door.
And I’m sure one day we’ll head down to the lake.
I’ve got it all planned, what I’m gonna say...(Chorus)
Track Name: Heartbeat of Jesus
Heartbeat of Jesus
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne & Hal Greenwood

1.
Old man on the corner
Closes up his business.
Goes home to an emptiness.
Heartbeat of Jesus.
Next door there’s a young girl.
A lover has come to call.
Their shadows light up the wall.
Heartbeat of Jesus.

Chorus:
Heartbeat of Jesus.
That’s what I feel here.
You can hear it so clear.
Heartbeat of Jesus.

2.
Through the next window
A passing stranger sees
A boy prayin’ on his knees.
Heartbeat of Jesus.
A gangster street soldier
Soft shoes and backwards cap
Tries to beat his own rap.
Heartbeat of Jesus. (Chorus)

Bridge:
Oh, can’t you feel it?
It beats through each moment of time
As we try to survive.
The heart that was shattered
Has somehow been scattered
Like seed on the winds
Of each of our lives.

3.
The old man lies quiet,
Reliving his many tears
As death gently calms his fears.
Heartbeat of Jesus.
The couple cry out in joy.
A young boy’s prayers ascend.
A gangster goes home again.
Heartbeat of Jesus. (Chorus)
Track Name: Tears Like Mine
Tears Like Mine
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
Don’t want no one to see me like this.
Don’t want to let it all out.
I feel like hell and there ain’t no tellin’
What these feelings are all about.

Don’t want to answer the phone today.
Don’t want to look at the sky.
Gonna sit right down with the shades pulled round me
And try to understand why…

Chorus:
I just want to cry.
I just want to cry.
I just want to cry.
But I know there was a time
When You had tears like mine.

2.
I feel so hollow and afraid to face it.
I think You’ve known my fears
You walked that road with Your wooden load
Well, man, I think mine’s here.

And some days I tremble at the thought of dyin’.
Well, maybe you did too.
You came to understand my pain.
To feel the way I do, when…(Chorus)

Repeat Verse 1 & Chorus

Heal the hole within my heart.
Hold me to Your Holy breast.

1.
There has been a hard, hard rain.
The flooded fields have died.

Shine on me inside. (Chorus)

2.
The broken path is overgrown
With tangled vines and weeds.
Help me clear that road again.
Help me find Your peace. (Chorus)

Like a newborn child.
Cradle me and rock me gently.
Hold me for awhile (Instrumental Chorus)

Holy Spirit, come down on me.
Make my life a symphony.
Take my blindness and let me see.
Holy Spirit, come down on me.

1.
You know my heart. You know my flaws.
You still love me in spite of it all.
Some days I’m weak - I play the game,
Some days I can’t even call Your name. (Chorus)

2.
Sometimes I fake it. I don’t even pray.
But even then, You don’t go away.
I have Your spirit livin’ in me.
I am a prisoner who’s been set free! (Chorus)

I am a vessel, so make me clean.
I want to share all the beauty I’ve seen.
Lord, give me the strength to live for the One
Who loved us so, we were given the Son. (Chorus)

1.
"And so it begins,"
Said the breeze to the trees.

Just you and me."

"Been waiting for you,"

Don't tell the moon!"

Let's dance again.
Hand in hand again.
Toes in sand again.
And so it begins! (Instrumental)
