1. As Autumn Turns to Spring (2:45)
2. Crooked Road (6:28)
Where fires turn to blaze
In rain nor river
The hearth inside steadfast and strong
The lay of clouds on the ridge
Our sons will never walk that way

In some dark holler
In footprints in the snow
Tears and laughter intertwine
Consumed by the earth
And the passing of days
Hours run but will not turn back
3. November's Cold (8:50)
Shadows lengthen on cold autumn days
Those long November grays, how they hold on to me
Moments between dark and dawn
The sun that burns on willow trees
Gives way to dark amber days
And there you stand, head in hands
Fallen like the autumn leaves

This silence is mine
Winter air and shining leaves
The mountains hold me in place
I can feel your absence
The spring still flows
But softer than before

I can still feel you
In the tears that fall
In the rocking chair and quilt
In the bird’s song
I will wait out the winter
In the valley and ridge
The terrain of my heart
4. Crying Shame (1:57)
When I was a boy my momma used to say
Son don’t you ever let em see you run away
Well I tried to obey the words she said that day
But now I’m rotten and I just can’t get away

My father drifted away, my mother’s dead and gone
My sister died of shame, my brother never came home
I hear the voice of an angel singing my last song
Lord I never thought I would live this long

I never thought I would live this long
And I never thought I’d be this strong
I been running so long I can’t run no more
Lord I been running since the day that I was born
5. Chasing Shadows (8:45)
When I was a boy, I used to run
Past the field stones
A silhouette against the barn
Let the trees stand in memorial
Of battles lost, of fires raging on
The mountains stand silent
Slowly they breathe, slowly they breathe

Torn daylight, little graves overgrown
Lightning across the sky
These are the landscapes where I grow
The lands inside, seeds to remember
Turning seasons and orange leaves
Where spring’s tender greens turn to white
This weary world I wander
I could see the rain in your eyes
Well springs crying out
Running in the cold night
Rolling tears through mountains
These foundations hold, they hold
They hold to me
6. Reflections (5:52)
7. The Path Home (5:04)
Long I have come
And farther I’ve got to go
Each step heavier than the last
Each path closer to home

I’ve followed tracks that melt in the snow
And rising creeks that swallow the stone
The mountain she opens wide
Like blossoms on the ridgeline

But the green turned to gold
And I found my way home
Autumn leaves light the way
In the quiet rain
In the old barn that I left behind
It remains the same long after I’m gone
