The Banks of the Musselshell

I stare out every evening at the distant Northern Star
It leads us ever northwards and tells us that we are
Lost below the Yellowstone in a land unknown to me
Ten thousand miles from loved ones and my home across the sea
 
We travel through an empty land, the benches are all strewn
With bison bones that shine ghost white with the rising of the moon
The grey wolf howls and answer as I try to sing on guard
Indentured to these Texans, in a land so wild and hard
 
When I hired on to Bill Ducharm in the heat of the Texas sun
I was unawares of his darker side or his swiftness with a gun
But I had made a solemn promise to ride with him through hell
And to deliver the herd to the ends of the earth or the mouth of the Musselshell
 
I turned just about 17 when we hit the first cowtown
I drank my first strong liquor there - and the women spun me 'round
But of all the barroom angels and their soft forbidden charms
I was stuck on Blue-eyed Annie - who belonged to Bill Ducharm
 
And the boy became a man that night in Annie's arms
But Annie cried and begged me... 'Beware of Bill Ducharm'
 
We left that Texas cowtown and pointed the herd North
But the first night when the moon was down, I rode back to Old Fort Worth
They were closin' down the barroom and rollin' up the floor
My heart was in my throat - as I knocked on Annie's door
 
And the boy became a man that night in Annie's arms
But Annie cried and begged me... 'Beware of Bill Ducharm'
 
Bill Ducharm had one bad eye - his face was a devil's red
The result of a bygone prairie fire where he'd crawled back from the dead
And every night in dreams as I rolled in Annie's arms
Only to wake to face old Satan - in the guise of Bill Ducharm
And each night 'cross the campfire - I'd face that one bad eye
Did he know that I'd betrayed him? Had my hour come to die?
One promise he did make good - yes, we followed him through hell
Driven by this one-eyed Lucifer towards the banks of the Musselshell
 
And as we near the Yellowstone, the snow begins to fall
And soon this wretched enterprise shall be ending for us all
It's then I'll need fast horses to fly to Annie's arms
And stay one jump ahead of the guns of Bill Ducharm

The Good God and the Evil God

The Good God and the Evil God met on the mountain top.

The Good God said, “Good day to you, brother.”

The Evil God did not answer.

And the Good God said, “You are in a bad humour today.”

“Yes,” said the Evil God, “for of late I have been often mistaken for you, called by your name, and treated as if I were you, and it ill-pleases me.”

And the Good God said, “But I too have been mistaken for you and called by your name.”

The Evil God walked away cursing the stupidity of man.

The Fall of Alfonso Ugarte

Ride, ride, ferocious rider
Ride into the sea
Raise your flag to heaven
Ride in ecstasy.

Fall, fall, heroic patriot
Fall into the waves
Defend your homeland's honor
Be forever brave.

Die, die, illustruous hero,
Die in shallow waters
For in the eyes of Death
Depth is not what matters.

Oh how good it is

Oh how good it is
When the family of God
Dwells together in spirit
In faith and unity.
Where the bonds of peace,
Of acceptance and love
Are the fruit of His presence
Here among us.

Chorus:
So with one voice we’ll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we’ll live out His word
Till the whole earth sees
The Redeemer has come
For He dwells in the presence of His people.

Oh how good it is
On this journey we share
To rejoice with the happy
And weep with those who mourn.
For the weak find strength
The afflicted find grace
When we offer the blessing
Of belonging.

Chorus

Oh how good it is
To embrace His command
To prefer one another
Forgive as He forgives.
When we live as one
We all share in the love
Of the Son with the Father
And the Spirit.

Chorus

Morning Dew

Walk me out in the morning dew, my honey.
Please, walk me out in the morning dew, sometime.
Can't walk you out in no morning dew, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Can't walk you out in no morning dew.
 
Thought I heard a young man cryin'.
Thought I heard a young man cryin', today.
You didn't hear no young man cryin'.
You did not hear no young man cryin'.
 
Thought I heard a young girl cryin'.
Thought I heard a young girl cryin'.
You, you did not hear no young girl cryin'.
I'm sorry, but you know it.
You did not hear no young man cryin'.
 
Now there is no more morning dew.
Now there is no more morning dew.
What they've been sayin' all these god-darn years
has come true, I knew it would.
Now there's no more morning dew.
 
Now there is no more morning dew at all, oh.
Now there is no more morning dew
because, because, because what they've been sayin'
all these years, has come true.
That you know and only you know
that there's no more morning dew.
 
Now, now there is no more morning dew.
People, you know that there's no more morning dew
because, because, what they've been sayin'
all these years, has come true. It had to happen.
You know that there's no more morning dew.
