Chilly Winds 02:37
I'm going where the chilly winds don't blow I'm going down that long lonesome road I'm going where the water tastes like wine I'll see you when your troubles are like mine I'm going where the climate suits my clothes The pain in my heart nobody knows I'm going where the chilly winds don't blow I'm going down that long lonesome road
2.
Softer Cloth 04:13
Pass me the needle and thread my friend I could do with mending old clothes Strengthen with patches and stitches of twine It's been long since I tended to the tears left behind I've never been one for a thimble A pricked finger tells me I'm alive As the blood trickles slowly down my thumb It's these old clothes I'm going to revive my son But you'll suffer it worse than this I fear Though you were never as torn as I Right down the seams and threadbare till naked Maybe they made me of softer cloth prone to holes Maybe I'm of softer cloth Pass me the needle and thread my love I'll make good or if not I'll make new This tatty old fabric is potent indeed And I'll fashion a dress just for you out of need But you'll suffer it worse than this I fear Though you were never as torn as I Right down the seams and threadbare till naked Maybe they made me of softer cloth prone to holes Maybe I'm of softer cloth If only they made me of stronger cloth I could put my needle away

Jerusalem 04:06
Dig deep and find your soul I know this place I know these people I feel their earth underneath my feet The flame of their fire burns inside me It's the same air that we breath The beat of their drum rises slowly Its a rhythm I've heard before They're calling me over Come and get over Dig deep and find your soul Theres this man there and he's dying He's bruised by bow of burning gold Oh but his arrow still desiring Nothing but a life to show Under the twinkling stars and the fingernail moon He fights to keep his land his home He's standing tall He's a giant He cries my soul is all I own Dig deep and find your soul And so our hero well he goes hungry But we're eating out the palm of his hand He tells me to dig deep Till we have built Jerusalem You won't even know you're born Dig deep and find your soul
4.
You laid down your burden when you left this world of woe And I will think with affection of your time with us below And on your journey your soul learned how to fly When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky Memory lingers while the body turns to clay That's so we will recognise you on the resurrection day And on your journey your soul learned how to fly When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky Home to meet the father Hallelujah what you've gained Free from care or bother and free from earthly pain And on your journey your soul learned how to fly When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky I thank God I'm a believer for I know how the story ends I'll deny the great deceiver and join my family and my friends And on your journey your soul learned how to fly When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky
