An Even Draw 03:49
In the time of our living we’re building our deaths A corner of earth to make our mark My morning’s work, my evening’s rest Never saw much value in a heavy heart I gave my heart to a restless man Born under the sign of the whippoorwill He roamed this country about as far as you can Nightbirds always singing on his windowsill Trouble don’t spare no man Bury me with a hammer in my hand I tended my own plot and parcel then A rocky bargain for eternal Spring In my mind it’s all galax and laurel now A brief charmed circle, a wild dark thing Trouble don’t spare no man Bury me with a hammer in my hand I’ll wear out not rust out, do all that I can Bury me with a hammer in my hand Love’s sense and nonsense, an even draw I held it loose and I gave it free I don’t claim salvation in faith or in law I want to build a world I won’t live to see I want to build a world I won’t live to see

Broad River 03:31
I spent so much time on trains Chasing down the tracks of change Saw my kids grow up in frames I couldn't shake the pain I watched young men push off for war They’d offer everything they had Come home to the land they’d been fighting for With a target on their back Hustle and conviction roll the stone And clear the land our tired hands could hoe As sure as that broad river twists to guide you home Seeds we plant are bound to grow They'd hide their face, pound their chest Lit the valley up in flames And swing the sickle of man’s unrest I couldn't shake the pain We pushed back against the hate To drown out a defiant south’s hit parade I still couldn't shake the pain I kept at the day by day Hustle and conviction roll the stone And clear the land our tired hands could hoe As sure as that broad river twists to guide you home Seeds we plant are bound to grow
