Track Name: Coming Home From Tarwin's Gap
My home is waiting there for me and the girl I left behind

Of all treasures that wait for me, that's what I want to find

Her eyes so merry and her smile so sweet

Her hug so warm and her ankle neat
Her kisses soft, now there's a treat

If there's a treasure greater, it lies not in my mind.



Oh, I have seen stark Tarwin's Gap and the Trollocs' raving horde

I've stood before the Halfman's charge and walked on death's cold board.
But a winsome lass, she waits for me
.
For a dance and a kiss 'neath the apple tree
.
Her embrace full for all to see.

If there's a treasure greater, it lies not in my mind.



Strange land is this Tarwin's Gap where death does not condone.
where good men meet their end of days and loved ones yet to know
her voice is comfort to my ears
and just her thought can drown my fears
until the day she reappears
If there's a treasure greater, it lies not in my mind.

I'm Coming home from Tarwin's Gap to the girl who own my heart
Darkness may lead some astray but can't keep us apart
Her laugh brings tears into my eyes
when I return I'll make her mine
once and for all, till end of time
If there's a treasure greater, it lies not in my mind.
If there's a treasure greater, it lies not in my mind.
Track Name: Tinker in the Kitchen
Tinker in the kitchen with a job of work to do
Mistress up above slipping on a robe of blue
She prances down the staircase, her fancy oh so free,
Crying, Tinker! Oh, dear Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me?

Tinker asks the mistress don't you got a labor man
Yes but she replied he lacks your talent and your hands
And I can tell you got the skill to hit the spot you see
So Tinker oh dear Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me

Tinker said the neighbor boy can probably get it done
He's far to inexperienced I never go that young
I'm sure he can be broken in or taught but he's too sweet
So Tinker oh dear Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me?

The mistress asked the tinker can you help me move the chairs
they're just a bit to heavy and they need to go upstair
she bats her eyes the tinker sigh's then picks them up with ease
So Tinker manly Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me?

The mistress told the tinker theres a problem with my bed
Its rough and full of lumps, the thought of sleep fills me with dread
I'm sure if we just rolled around I'd cry aloud in glee
So Tinker handsom Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me?

Tinker in his small clothes while he's underneath the sheets
When the sound of foot steps in the kitchen start to creak.
He's unaware, don't use the stair, or you'll get caught and beat.
So Tinker oh dear Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me?
Come on now go! Use the window! No need from him to see
So Tinker oh dear Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me?
Track Name: My Loves Are So Many (ft. Marissa Madsen)
As I walked out one fine spring day, 

I met young Jac who was pitching hay,

his hair so fair, and his eyes were too.

Well. I gave him a kiss; oh, what could I do?

We snuggled and we tickled while the sun rose high.

and I won't say how often he made me sigh.



Now Jac gets an hour when the sky is clear,

and Willi gets an hour when my fathers not near.

It's the hayloft with Mori for he shows no fear,.
Keilin comes at midday: he's oh so bold!

Brelan gets an evening when the night is cold.

Master Andril gets a morning, but he's very old. 


Oh. what, oh what is a poor girl to do? 

My loves are so many and the hours so few.
Track Name: Wind That Shakes The Willow
My love is gone, carried away.
By the wind that shakes the willow,

And all the land is beaten hard.
By the wind that shakes the willow.


But I will hold her close to me, In heart and dearest memory.

And with her strength to steel my soul, Her love to warm my heart-strings.

And I will stand where we once sang,
Though cold wind shakes the willow.
And I will stand where we once sang,
Though cold wind shakes the willow.

Dear lass of mine, who now is free.
To the Wind that shakes the willow
Let grace and beauty, fill your wings,
with the wind that shakes the willow

Fore I will hold you close to me, in heart and dearest memory
And with your strength to steel my soul, your love to warm my heart-strings.

And I will stand where we once sang,
Though cold wind shakes the willow.
And I will stand where we once sang,
Though cold wind shakes the willow.

Be lay to rest, until my day.
By the wind that shakes the willow
Lift up my hands, carried away.
By the wind that shakes the willow,


Fore I had held you close to me, In heart and dearest memory.

And with your strength to steel my soul, your love to warm my heart-strings.

And I will stand where we once sang,
Though cold wind shakes the willow.
And I will stand where we once sang,
Though cold wind shakes the willow.
Track Name: If You Go To Be A Soldier
You’ll feed on beans and on rotten hay,
and a horse’s hoof come your naming day.
You’ll sweat and bleed till you grow old,
and your only gold will be dreams of gold,
if you go to be a soldier.
If you go to be a soldier.

Your girl will marry another man.
A muddy grave will be all your land.
Food for the worms and none to mourn.
You’ll curse the day you were ever born,
if you go to be a soldier.
if you go to be a soldier.

You'll sleep on rocks, and knotty roots,
With holes from mice in cold damp boots.
You'll wake to the crows caw at the sky,
Then march 'till night's a passing sigh.
If you go to be a soldier.
If you go to be a soldier.

Your home's a far and fond desire,
the clash of steel a battle choir.
should you survive encountered foes,
Your bones will ache from head to toe,
If you go to be a soldier.
If you go to be a soldier.

Your family will forget your face
You'll lose your beauty, youth and grace
They'll judge you with complete condemn
You'll find your swords your dearest friend,
If you go to be a soldier.
If you go to be a soldier.

Their's honor and a sense of pride
to fight for freedom with your life
not all approve but none object
that all who serve deserve respect
If you go to be a soldier.
If you go to be a soldier.
Track Name: Sweet Whispers of Tomorrow
Oh, how long were the days of a man.

When he strode upon the broken land.

He sailed as far as a man could steer.

And he never wished to lose his fear.

For the fear of man is a thing untold.

It keeps him safe, and it proves him bold!


Don't let fear make you cease to strive,

for that fear it proves you remain alive!

I will walk this broken road,
and I will carry a heavy load!

So come at me with your awful lies,

I'm a man of truth and I'll meet your eyes!
Track Name: I'm Down at the Bottom of the Well
I'm down at the bottom of the well,
It's night, and the rain is coming down...
The sides are falling in
and there's no rope to climb,
I'm down at the bottom of the well.

If I could have a wish right about now
it'd include some rope or just plain help...
I've half the mind to climb
I'm in such a tight bind
Coz I'm down at the bottom of the well

I'm soak n' wet and getting wetter still
The rain is pouring, well's began to fill...
the water's at me chin
Im not sure I can swim
Coz I'm down at the bottom of the well

I'm treading water I hardly can breathe
It's coming down and filling with such speed...
I won't last very long
my dog paddle ain't so strong
Coz I'm down at the bottom of the well

I'm giving up I just want this to end
Oh what a world, oh what a world we're in…
I love you ma n' pop
Oh wait, I'm at the top
Oh I'm up from the bottom of the well
Yes I'm up from the bottom of the well
Yes I'm up from the bottom of the well
Track Name: River Iralell
We rode down to River Iralell,
just to see the Taren come.

We stood along the riverbank,
with the rising of the sun.

Their horses… blacked the summer plain,
their banners… blacked the sky.

But we stood our… ground on the banks
Of River Iralell.

Oh, we stood our ground.
Yes, we stood our ground.
Stood our ground along the river in the morning.

We rode down to River Iralell,
just to send the Taren home.
We stood along the riverbank,
with the setting of the sun.


Their ship sails… raised as we out flanked,
their banners… toppled and fell.

Fore we stood our… ground on the banks
of River Iralell.


Oh, we stood our ground.
Yes, we stood our ground.
Stood our ground along the river in the morning.
Track Name: Color of Trust
Give me your trust, said the Aes Sedai.

On my shoulders I support the sky.

Trust me to know and to do what is best,

And I will take care of the rest.

But trust is the color of a dark seed growing.

Trust is the color of a heart's blood flowing.

Trust is the color of a soul's last breath.

Trust is the color of death.

Give me your trust, said the queen on her throne,

for I must bear the burden all alone.

Trust me to lead and to judge and to rule,

and no man will think you a fool.

But trust is the sound of the grave-dog's bark.

Trust is the sound of betrayal in the dark.

Trust is the sound of a soul's last breath.

Trust is the sound of death.

Give me your trust, said the King on high
A promise of peaceful and prosperous lives
Trust my compassion will reign pure and true
A kingdom of glory and joy through and through
But trust is the scent of a burning village
Trust the scent from spoils and pillage
trust is the scent of a souls last breath
trust is the scent of death

Give us your trust said the lady and lord
to grant you protection and give to the poor
trust us when guarding your lands have no fear
for the life of the common folk while we are near
Fore trust is the touch of a blade to the throat
Trust is the touch of the hang man's rope
trust is the touch of a souls last breath
trust is the touch of death

Give me your trust said the Love of your life
To have and to hold, in joy and in strife
Trust me to love you with heart and with soul
for better or worse, till death take it's toll
But trust is the taste of a thee unfaithful's lie
Trust is the taste of poisoned wine
Trust is the taste of a souls last breath
Trust is the taste of death.
Track Name: Frog on the Ice
Frog on the ice, hopping in place
slipping on his belly and falling on his face
the lake gone hard, he said with a croak
I came for a swim this must me a joke

oh frog on the ice, a tail would be grand
use it like a lasso to get you back to land, or
just wait around, until the ice melts
and if you got it in you, you can cry for help

oh frog on the ice, claw's would great
scratch your way off uh that frozen lake
heres a better thought, try and grow wings
fly yourself home with the migrating things

Oh from on the ice, frozen to the core
I can't believe I didn't think of this before
see that tree over there, the really close one
ready, take aim, now grab it with your tongue!
Track Name: Midean's Ford
Soft, the winds, like springtime's fingers.
Soft, the rains, like heaven's tears.
Soft, the years roll by in gladness,
never hinting storms to come,
never hinting whirlwinds' ravage,
rain of steel and battle thunder,
war to tear the heart asunder.
Back across the blood-red water,
marching back with heads held high.
No surrender, arm or sword,
no surrender, heart or soul.
Honor be theirs, ever after,
honor all the Age shall know.
Track Name: What He Said To Me
I’ll dance with a girl with eyes of brown,

or a girl with eyes of green,

I’ll dance with a girl with any color eyes,

but yours are the prettiest I’ve seen.

I’ll kiss a girl with hair of black,

or a girl with hair of gold,

I’ll kiss a girl with any color hair
but it’s you I want to hold.

What he said to me, you're
all that I can see.
The fairest of them all I do believe
The dimples in your cheeks,
as cute as one can be. He
bowed and whispered, will you dance with me?

I'll dance with a girl in rain or shine
I'll dance in sleet or snow
I'll dance with a girl, any weather, any time
but it's your dance that I would like to know

I'll kiss a girl that towers high
or a girl I must kneel to meet
I'll kiss a girl of any varied height
but it's your kiss that taste so sweet.

What he said to me, you're
all that I can see.
The fairest of them all I do believe
The dimples in your cheeks,
as cute as one can be. He
bowed and whispered, will you dance with me?
Track Name: A Lugard Girl (The Dancing Lass)
A Lugard girl, came to town,

to see what she could see. could see

With a wink, of her eye, smile on her lip,

She snagged a boy or three, or three.


With an ankle slim and skin so pale,

She caught the owner of a ship

With a soft little sigh and a gay little laugh,

She made her way so free.

I'll wear no, shift at all.

Shift at all, no shift

A Lugard girl, came to town,

To take what she could take, could take

Smells of rose, high cheek bones, neck line low
A heart or two she’ll break, she’ll break

With a shake from the hips of the Dancing Lass
She stole a merchants gaze

With a waist line slim and bounce to her step
The men all sang her praise.

I'll wear no, shift at all.

Shift at all, no shift
Track Name: Two Kings Came Hunting (Two Horses Running)
Listen one listen all, and I’ll sing you a song
that will set your heart a thumping.
Fill your mouths with some ale and I’ll tell you the tale
of two kings that came a hunting.

Two kings came hunting,
when they lost their way
and stumbled to my glade.
Take us home young man!
No I don’t think that I can.
You see well, not unless I’m paid!
I can't believe what I heard!
I do believe that is absurd!
Well I believe I should be reimbursed!
We’re the kings! They demanded.
Well I won’t go empty handed,
unless my pockets full of coins and bout burst!

Two kings came hunting, when they lost their way
and stumbled to my glade.

He’s a vagabond, a bandit!
I’m traveler, understand it.
I know the roads and I’m your only hope.
Pay me finely for as your guide,
and your grace I’ll save your lives.
Or else you’ll have to find your way alone.
Off with you we will not pay it!
Well your grace I’ll have to take it.
You’re in my woods and these sir are my rules.
Gold and silver in the sack,
is that a ring, yes I’ll take that.
Now be gone from my sight you royal fools!

Two kings came hunting, when they lost their way
and stumbled to my glade.

You’ll pay for this! They threatened.
Here’s an apple as a present.
For the horses cause they’re far much more polite.
Off they galloped into the distance,
but despite all their persistence.
They were lost and soon the day had become night.
By the fire coneys roasting
heard a set of hooves approaching,
and I wondered to myself "who could that be?"
Should have paid the proper funding
Fore two horses came a running
riderless to spend the night back here with me!

Two kings came hunting, when they lost their way
and never were seen again
