1. Silver Dagger
(Trad. arranged by Neil Rossi)

Don't sing love songs you'll wake my mother
She's sleeping here, right by my side
And in her right hand, is a silver dagger
She says that I can't be your bride.

All men are false, says my mother
They'll tell you sweet, sweet lovin' lies
And The very next evening, they'll court another
And Leave you there to weep and sigh.

My daddy is a handsome devil
He's got a chain five miles long
And on each link a heart does dangle
Of another maid he's loved and wronged.

So go and court another tender maiden
And hope that she will be your wife
For I've been forwarned and I've decided
To sleep alone all of my life.

2. Honey In My Coffee
(Stearns)

Put a little honey in my coffee and I'll drink it down
Put a little honey in my coffee pick my feet right off the ground
Sing to my sweet darling till the sun goes down

Put a little whisky in my coffee and I'll drink it down
It's only 5 in the morning but I'm feeling mighty fine for sure
When I see the bottom of the cup then I ask for more

Put a little butter in my coffee and I'll drink it down
Charlie he's a good young man Charlie he's a dandy
Charlie he's a good young man feeds the gals on candy

Ain't nothing sweeter than my baby she's quite the pick me up
Ain't nothing sweeter than my baby and I can't get enough
Ain't nothing sweeter than my baby she makes me feel like a kid in love
Put coffee in my coffee I might make a million bucks

3. I Miss The Blue
(Stearns)

It's beautiful in the snow
Everything's cold and moving slow
Blue angles in the streetlights
Constellations falling in the breeze
While moonlight lingers on them snow white trees

I miss the blue and the look in your eyes
When winter has covered the hours of life
Pale becomes the stillness that beats through the night
I miss the the blue thats with you on the other side

4. Hard Wood To Chop
(Stearns)

5. Never Grow Old
(Trad)

I have heard of a land on a far away strand

'Tis a beautiful home of the soul

Built by Jesus on high, there we never shall die

'Tis a land where we never grow old

Never grow old never grow old

In a land where we'll never grow old

Never grow old never grow old

In a land where we'll never grow old

When our work here is done and the life crown is won

And our troubles and trials are o'er

All our sorrow will end and our voices will blend 

With the loved ones who've gone on before
