Track Name: Edward IV. (Oh Dear Love, Tell Me)
How came the blood on your shirt sleeve
Oh dear love, tell me, Oh dear love, tell me
It is the blood of that old greyhound
That traced the fox for me, for me
That traced the fox for me

It is too red for that old greyhound
Oh dear love, tell me, Oh dear love, tell me
It is the blood of that old grey mare
That plowed the field for me, for me
That plowed the field for me

It is too red for that old grey mare
Oh dear love, tell me, Oh dear love, tell me
It is the blood of my brother-in-law
That went away from me, from me
That went away from me

And what will you do now my love
Oh dear love, tell me, Oh dear love, tell me
I'll set my foot on yonder ship
And sail across the sea, the sea
And sail across the sea

And when will you come back again
Oh dear love, tell me, Oh dear love, tell me
When the sun sets on yonder tree
And that will never be, never be
And that will never be
Track Name: Lone Prairie
Bury me not on the lone prairie
The voice came low, and mournfully
From the pale lips of the youth who lay
On his dying bed at the close of day

Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie
where the wild cyotes'll howl over me
In a narrow grave, six by three
Bury me not on the lone prairie

It matters not, I've been told
Where the body lays when the heart is cold
But grant, oh grant, this wish for me
Bury me not on the lone prairie

I've always wanted, when I died
To be laid on the green hillside
Oh my father, promise me
Bury me not on the lone prairie

Bury me not on the lone prairie
Bury me not on the lone prairie
Oh my father, promise me
Bury me not on the lone prairie
Track Name: Angel Band
My latest sun is sinking fast, my race is nearly run
My greatest trials they all are past, my triumph has begun

O come Angel Band, come and around me stand
Bear me away on your snow white wings, to my eternal home
Bear me away on your snow white wings, to my eternal home

And bear my eager heart to him, who gave his life for me
Whose blood now cleanses all my sins, and brings me victory

O come, Angel Band, come and around me stand
Bear me away on your snow white wings, to my eternal home
Bear me away on your snow white wings, to my eternal home
Track Name: Keep on the Sunny Side
There's a dark and a troubled side of life
There's a bright and a sunny side too
Though we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

Keep on the sunny side
Always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us everyday
It'll brighten all our ways
If we keep on the sunny side of life

For the storm in her fury broke today
Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear
The storm will in time pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear

Keep on the sunny side
Always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us everyday
It'll brighten all our ways
If we keep on the sunny side of life

Keep on the sunny side
Always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us everyday
It'll brighten all our ways
If we keep on the sunny side of life
