Track Name: Not in Nottingham (Roger Miller)
Every town
Has its ups and down
Sometime ups
Outnumber the downs
But not in Nottingham
I'm inclined to believe
If we were so down
We'd up and leave
We'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'
Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?
Can't there be some happiness for me?
Not in Nottingham
Track Name: Orphan Girl (Gillian Welch)
I am an orphan on God's highway
But I'll share my travels if you go my way
I have no mother no father
No sister no brother
I am an orphan girl

I have had friendships pure and golden
But the ties of kinship I have not known them
I know no mother no father
No sister no brother
I am an orphan girl

But when He calls me I will be able
To meet my family at God's table
I'll meet my mother my father
My sister my brother
No more orphan girl

Blessed Savior make me willing
And walk beside me until I'm with them
Be my mother my father
My sister my brother
I am an orphan girl
Track Name: Holes (Mercury Rev)
time, all the long red lines
that take control
of all the smokelike streams
that flow into your dreams
that big blue open sea
that can't be crossed
that can't be climbed
just born between
oh the two white lines
distant gods and faded signs
of all those blinking lights
you had to pick the one tonight

holes, dug by little moles
angry jealous spies
got telephones for eyes
come to you as friends
all those endless ends
that can't be tied
oh they make me laugh
and always make me cry
'til they drop like flies
and sink like polished stones
of all the stones I throw
how does that old song go
how does that old song go

bands, those funny little plans
that never work quite right
