Walking in sunlight All of my journey Over the mountain Through the deep vale Jesus has said I'll Never forsake thee Promise Divine that Never can fail Heavenly Sunlight, Heavenly Sunlight Flooding my soul with glory divine Halleluiah, I am rejoicing Singing his praises, Jesus is mine Shadows around me Shadows above me Never conceal my Savior and guide He is the light in Him there's no darkness Ever I'm walking Close to his side Heavenly Sunlight, Heavenly Sunlight Flooding my soul with glory divine Halleluiah, I am rejoicing Singing his praises, Jesus is mine Halleluiah I am rejoicing Singing his praises Jesus is mine

I need everybody up there I need a lifting of a heavenly prayer I need So much of my life has been a waste Too many things have been done in haste Everybody up there can tell you why It's real important to try, try, try And he up there must have felt tired and confused Feeling hopeless in spite of everything they used He must have looked up there just realizing He too couldn't get anywhere I need He too must have felt lost When things in life didn't seem worth the cost Hope everybody up there keeps a watch on me Need everybody up there to set me free When you're feeling down You've got to tell him about your troubles in mind When you're feeling down You've got to tell him about your troubles in mind When you're feeling down Tell him about your troubles all the time And you know you're going to end up End up I need everybody up there I need a lifting of a I need a heavenly prayer And I need Everybody up there

All and all is one thing today One good effort made on its way To take in a love and pass on a feeling Of heart in chest slowly unpeeling Lilly can take it with a smile and not a frown In the room where she lives blessed I guess She wears my favor and shows it around And in doing so I too get blessed Rules explode and we call her mine And she has my baby and things are fine She can't hold her eyes still or her voice The way nooses hold necks still in excellent poise Lilly can take it with a smile and not a frown In the room where she lives blessed I guess She wears my favor and shows it around And in doing so I too get blessed Jug holds a gallon and you hold my arm And I hold a million in bottle and yarn And gem isn't sacred when mother has breathed You know - you told me that A shark and a dog - now you're laughing The dog licks the shark dry in your photographing And I lick you dry until you are laughing My finger is in your behind I woke up fat and almost unhappy But the bigger the laugh the bigger the belly And I bellow out and the whole bed it shakes And you smile at my laugh as it rocks you awake

Oh hard is the fortune of all woman kind They’re always controlled, they’re always confined Controlled by their parents until they are wives Then slaves to their husbands the rest of their lives Oh I am a poor girl my fortune is sad I've always been courted by the wagoner's lad He courted me daily, by night and by day Now he is all loaded and going away Your parents don't like me because I am poor They say I'm not worthy of entering your door I work for my living, my money's my own And if you don't like it you can leave me alone Your horses are hungry go feed them some hay Come sit down here by me as long as you may My horses ain't hungry, they won't eat your hay So fare you well darling, I'll be on my way Your wagon needs greasing, your whip is to mend Come sit down here by me as long as you can My wagon is greasy, my whip's in my hand So fare you well darling no longer to stand

Old Enoch he lived to be three hundred and sixty five Till the lord came and took him back to heaven alive I saw, I saw the light from heaven come shining all around I saw the light come shining, come shining down When Paul prayed in prison those prison walls came down And the prison keeper shouted: redeeming love I've found! I saw, I saw the light from heaven come shining all around I saw the light come shining, come shining down When Moses saw that burning bush he walked it round and round And the lord said to Moses: you're treading holy ground! I saw, I saw the light from heaven come shining all around I saw the light come shining, come shining down Dry bones in the valley got up and took a little walk The deaf could hear and the dumb could talk I saw, I saw the light from heaven come shining all around I saw the light come shining, come shining down Adam and Eve in the garden, under that sycamore tree Eve said to Adam: Satan never tempted me! I saw, I saw the light from heaven come shining all around I saw the light come shining, come shining down

You were living on the eastern shore You were living out in Singapore You were saying that maybe it's a sign Don't tell your backseat lies You were living in the mouth of the sun You were breathing in the waterfront You were saying that maybe it's a sign Don't tell your backseat lies I was a dog, I had a name No one would tell me but I knew all the same I was a goner but I knew all the same: I am a king, I've got it made You were dreaming you were king and queen with a lady had a face that you had never seen You said you traded all your armies just to see her eyes Don't tell your backseat lies

God has given us years of happiness here Now we must part And as the angels come and call for you The pain of grief tugs at my heart Oh my darling, my darling My heart breaks as you take your long journey Oh the days will be empty The nights so long without you my love And when god calls for you I'm left alone But we will meet in heaven above Oh my darling, my darling My heart breaks as you take your long journey Fond memories I'll keep of happy ways That on earth we trod And when I come we will walk hand in hand As one in heaven in the family of god Oh my darling, my darling My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Oh suffering daughter mine Take what's yours and then be done with all your sighing I won't share one drop of wine Take your brother's hand In 1917 he died for all our sins in the blackest no man's land Daughter find another place You'll have lovers you will learn to love disgrace I don't want to see your face I gave my breath to bones with your mother, now we'll suffocate alone in this place that was our home Take your brother's lungs He won't need them, you can use them for a song Sing for father's poor dead son

Willie Moore was a King his age was twenty one he courted a damsel fair Oh her eyes were as bright as the diamonds in the night and wavy black was her hair He courted her both night and day till married she did agree but when he went to bid her parents' consent they said it could never be She threw herself in Willie Moore's arms as often times had done before But little did he think when they parted that night sweet Ellen would he see no more It was about the 10th of May a time I remember well That very same night her body disappeared in a way no tongue could tell Sweet Ellen was loved both far and near, had friends most all around And in the little brook before the cottage door the body of Ellen was found She was taken by her weeping friends and carried to her parents' room And there she dressed in a shroud snowy white and laid in a lonely tomb Her parents now are left alone One mourns and the other one weeps And in the fresh made mound before the cottage door the body of Ellen does sleep This song was composed in the cloudy west By a man you may never have seen I will tell you his name but is not in full His initials are JRG

about

We started singing together for the simple fun of it. This collection of songs represents the first few songs we happened to learn with each other. These are old time songs from the oldest necks of America, songs by modern ancients Doc Watson and Will Oldham, and a few songs by us.
