Track Name: Goodbye Cool World
GOODBYE COOL WORLD, by Emily Cantrell  © 2014                            

I remember the breeze
It felt so nice
Felt like the wind 
Blowin’ over the ice - no ice
It was all gone
In the blink of an eye
Goodbye cool world, goodbye

I remember the sun
Before the drought
Back in the days
When we used to go out - no doubt
Now we stay inside
And hide from the sky
Goodbye cool world, goodbye

Why, baby, didn’t we open our eyes
To the ghost of the future of human demise?
Who would have thought back in 2013
We’d go extinct ‘cause we wouldn’t go green?

I remember the Earth
My home sweet home
Now it’s 200 degrees in Nome - n-ome!
Coulda biked, coulda hiked
We just didn’t try
Goodbye cool world, goodbye

I remember the Earth
My starter home
Now I’m in space living under a dome - no home!
Coulda biked, coulda hiked
We just didn’t try
Goodbye cool world, goodbye

Adios—we’re toast
Auf wiedersehen—I wish it would rain
Sayonara—somebody put out the fire-ah
Goodbye cool world, goodbye!
Track Name: Black Bayou
BLACK BAYOU, by Emily Cantrell ©2012

1. I travel all over this doggoned land
Make my livin' with my own two hands
Playin' guitar and singin' a song
If you sing it from the heart, you can never go wrong

2. Pappy's got a place that he calls his own
Built out of bricks and Louisiana stone
Green fields under a sky steel blue
It runs right down to the Black Bayou

Chorus:
I'm goin' on down to the Black Bayou
Gonna see my brother and his sweet chou chou
Nephew stirrin' up a gumbo stew
They got it real good on the Black Bayou
Yeah, they got it good on the Black Bayou

3. Don't wait too long ‘til you visit your kin
The kids grow fast and they blow to the wind
My family, they all shine like gold
They teach you when you're young
And they love you when you're old

end:
They ride on the gators on the Black Bayou
And they eat mashed potaters on the Black Bayou
They drink a little whisky on the Black Bayou
And they get a little frisky on the Black Bayou
Track Name: Weather Report
WEATHER REPORT, © Emily Cantrell

The weather report - no rain today
Might be the time to get away
Even with clouds and skies of grey
The weather report no rain today

Your jacket is draped across the chair
The scent of your perfume lingers there
They say no raindrops anywhere
But they can’t feel my heart’s despair

It wasn’t long ago
Sunlight was pouring down
Then all your shadows disappeared
Heartache was all I found

I think I’ll take the train from here
Go someplace where the skies are clear
If only I could hold you near
Then I could wipe away these tears

The weather report - no rain today
Might be the time to get away
Even with clouds and skies of grey
The weather report - no rain today
The weather report - no rain today
Track Name: Miner's Letter
MINER’S LETTER, © Emily Cantrell

Every day there’s a shade of a doubt
When we go down in the mines
We will never come out
And today is the day that our fears are realized
But if I could look one more time into your eyes
I would tell you my dear do not weep
For I am only going to sleep

Chorus:
Oh my darling I’m going to sleep
In a world far away from you
Cold and so deep
But tomorrow I’ll wake in a better place
And some day touch your hand
And see your smiling face
I’m not scared for my soul God will keep
For I am only going to sleep

There’s a dark scene of sadness above
Though it holds all I care for
The dear ones I love
So I’ll write you a letter of what it’s like down here
I am not suffering though my time is near
I think of you as precious moments creep
And now I’ll lay me down and go to sleep

Chorus:
Oh my darling I’m going to sleep
In a world far away from you
Cold and so deep
But tomorrow I’ll wake in a better place
And some day touch your hand
And see your smiling face
I’m not scared for my soul God will keep
For I am only going to sleep
I’m not scared for my soul God will keep
For I am only going to sleep

Keep the faith that you have found with

Gibson guitar in your hand, Woody’s shadow where you stand
This land will surely be your land, so
sing, sing my prodigal child

Track Name: Stand Right Here
STAND RIGHT HERE ©2005 Emily Cantrell

I’m gonna stand right here ‘tll the sun shines
I’m gonna stand right here in the rain
I’m gonna stand right here ‘til the sun shines
I know it’ll come
I know it’ll shine again

Bridge:
You can stand with me
I don’t know how it’s gonna be
I don’t know how long
They might try to take away this song

I’m gonna stand right here til this war is over
I’m gonna stand right here in the rain
I’m gonna stand right here til this war is over
I know we can stop it
I know we can break the chain

Bridge:
I’m gonna stand right here ‘til the poor folks get some money
I’m gonna stand right here in the rain
I’m gonna stand right here ‘til the poor folks get some money
I know we can help
I know we can ease their pain

Bridge
I’m gonna stand right here ‘til the sun shines
I’m gonna stand right here in the rain
I’m gonna stand right here ‘til this war is over
I know we can stop it
I know we can break the chain
I know we can stop it
I know we can break the chain
Track Name: 'Twas a Full Moon Ago
’TWAS A FULL MOON AGO, © Emily Cantrell

’Twas a full moon ago and a year
We parted our ways on the shore
As the light softly fell on your face
I was sure that I had you no more

So I moved on to make some new friends
Though that night never left me alone
And right now I am here at this gatherin’
My heart still to find a new home

Chorus: I’m just here for the chips and beer
Nothin’ better to do
I’m just here for the party
But fancy meetin’ you

There’s a girl on your arm keeps you occupied
She’s quite the pretty sort
And I’m tryin’ to act indifferent to you
Though I know you can read my heart

So I’ll grab a guitar and sing a song
As happy a one as I can
Then I’ll wander out back where the moon is full
And try startin’ over a gain

Chorus: I’m just here for the chips and beer
Nothin’ better to do
I’m just here for the party
But fancy meetin’ you

’Twas a full moon ago and a year
Track Name: Violet
VIOLET, © Emily Cantrell

Violet was mine
Violet is gone with the time
That is kept by the clock on the wall
But I still hear her call

Violet was wise
Violet had violet eyes
That were calm as the mountains at dawn
But she ran like a fawn

Violet would dance in and out of my heart
I could only hold onto one shining part

Violet was strong
Violet was singing a song
That I never did hear ’til the end
And what’s broken won’t mend

Violet was mine
Violet is gone with the time
That is kept by the clock on the wall
But I still hear her call
I hear her call
I hear her call
