Track Name: Slane
Be though my vision, oh Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that thou art
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light

Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise
Thou my inheritance, now and always
Thou and thou only first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my treasure thou art

When first in this country, a stranger I came
I placed my affections on a comely young dame
Her face fair and tender and her waist small and slender
Kind nature had formed her for my overthrow

On the banks of Bann water, where first we did meet
She appeared like fair Juno or a Grecian queen
Her eyes shone like diamonds and her hair softly twined
Her cheeks were like roses or blood drops on snow
Track Name: Little Pink
Come here, Little Pink
Tell me what do you think, lord lord
You've been a long time making up your mind

I used to think
You was the prettiest little thing, lord lord
That ever the sun shone on

You caused me to weep
And you've caused me to moan, lord lord
You caused me to leave a happy home

You caused me to walk
Down that long lonesome road, lord lord
That never I had walked before

I truly understand
That you love another man, lord lord
And your heart will no longer be mine

Come here, Little Pink
And tell me what do you think, lord lord
You've been a long time making up your mind
Track Name: Train on the Island
Train on the island, headed for the west
Run and tell my true love, one I loves the best
I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, thought I heard her blow
Run and tell my true love, I'm sick and I can't go
I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, headed for the west
Me and my gal, we fell out, might be for the best
I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, rollin' through the pines
My brother says my luck will change, hope this is the time
I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, golden bell that shines
I gave my heart to one sweet girl, she's no longer mine
I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, hear that engine roar
If I can't have the one I love, I'll never love no more
I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, though I heard her squeal
Run and tell my true love, I can't hold the wheel
I can't hold the wheel

I can't hold the wheel
Track Name: Dark is the Color
Dark is the color of my true love's hair
His home is one some island fair
The sweetest face, and the neatest hands
I love the ground whereon he stand

I love my love, and well he knows
I love the ground whereon he goes
If he no more on Earth I see
I wouldn't serve you as he have me

The winter's passed, and the leave are green
The time is past that we have been
But yet I hope the time will come
When you and I shall be as one

My dear sweet heart, so fare ye well
you've slighted me, but I wish you well
You've slighted me and broke my heart
Oh how can I from you depart

I go to the river for to mourn and weep
But satisfied I could never could be
I wrote a letter in a few short lines
I died a death a thousands times
Track Name: Willow Garden
Down in the willow garden, where me and my true love did meet
Down where we sat a-courtin', my love fell off to sleep
I had a bottle of burgundy wine, my love she did not know
It was there I did murder that dear little girl, down on the banks below

I drew my saber through her, it was a bloody knife
And I pushed her into the river, it was a dreadful sight
My father always told me that money would set me free
If I'd but murder that dear little girl whose name was Rose Connelly

Now he sits and the door of his cabin home, a-wiping his tear dimmed eyes
For his only son is soon to hand upon the scaffold high
My race is run beneath the sun, the Devil is waiting for me
For i did murder that dear little girl, whose name was Rose Connelly
Track Name: Peg and Awl
In eighteen-hundred-one, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-one, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-one, peggin' shoes was all I'd done
I'ma gonna lay me down my awl, my peg and awl

In eighteen-hundred-two, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-two, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-two, peggin' shoes was all I'd do
I'ma gonna lay me down my awl, my peg and awl

In eighteen-hundred-three, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-three, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-three, peggin' shoes was all you'd see
I'ma gonna lay me down my awl, my peg and awl

They've invented a new machine, peg and awl
They've invented a new machine, peg and awl
They've invented a new machine, I peg one shoe, it pegs fifteen
I'ma gonna lay me down my awl, my peg and awl

In eighteen-hundred-four, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-four, peg and awl
In eighteen-hundred-four, peggin' shoes I'll do no more
I'ma gonna lay me down my awl, my peg and awl
Track Name: Fair Young Man
He searches high, he wanders low
Nary a thought, for the winds that blow

chorus:
Fair young man, to your own heart be
Tender and true, careful with thee

The world's own weight he's forced to bear
With his left hand, he placed it there

- chorus -

Lift up your face, the dawn is near
Open your eyes, there's naught to fear

- chorus -

I'll stay with you should harm befall
And come to aid if you should call

- chorus -
