LYRICS FROM THE ALBUM HAPPY LITTLE TREES 

NORTHERN LIGHTS by Sally Truitt and KC Groves 

No light on a hard night

Hear the wind’s lonesome sigh 

Low down in a blue town

I look to the sky 

 

(CH) If I could just see them 

My heart would know 

All of my sorrow would melt with the snow oh oh 

When Northern Lights glow

 

 

Do you know that Juneau

Inlet to the sea 

I know, if I go 

There’ll be peace for me 

 

Last chance at romance 

For stars to align

Just hold sway and drift away

I’m there in my mind

 

 

I CAN’T QUIT YOU by Oliver Craven KC Groves Jefferson Hamer and Sharon Gilchrist

(CH) I can’t quit you 

I’ve tried and tried to no end 

You don’t want me darlin’

And I can’t be just a friend 

 

Cigarettes were no problem

One day I just had enough

I tried to put you down darlin’

But love’s a habit way to rough

CHORUS

I gave up cocaine n’ all that party wine

All those pretty little pills 

But I still want you n' you’re always on my mind

The heart is stronger than the will 

 

ANNABELLE by KC Groves

Annabelle listen close

You’re still the one 

he loves the most

I gave my heart

poured out my soul

Annabelle love takes its toll

 

Annabelle listen dear

come real close 

so you can hear

how my heart breaks

I know yours does too

Annabelle I’m sad and blue

 

Annabelle, take these chains

you HOLD round his heart

it’s causin' me pain

if you still hold a flame 

give me a sign 

otherwise Annabelle 

let him be mine

 

Annabelle listen close

You’re still the one 

 

LITTLE RAIN by Sally Truitt

Little Rain came fallin' down

River rose and it soaked the ground

And the water came to the town

(CH) You can't stay here and you can't leave town 

You might run and you might well drown 

When the water comes to the town

 

Little Rain came strong and deep

Woke all the little ones from their sleep 

When the water came to the town

CHORUS

Little Rain took all our home 

River washed out all we own 

And the water came to the town

CHORUS

(BR) You can change our land around

You can keep all that you found

You can watch us stand our ground 

But you can't take our town

 

Lover's Return Carter Family 

And so you have come back to me
And say the old love's growing yet
You tried through all these weary years
You tried too vainly to forget

(CH) Oh no I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours my friend in perfect truth

Come close and let me see your face
Your raven hair is tinged with snow
Oh yes it is the same dear face
I loved so many years ago

CHORUS

Farewell I think I love you yet
As friend to friend God bless you dear
And guide you through these weary years
To where the skies are always clear

CHORUS


UNIVERSAL LULLABY by Lauren Stovall, Bonnie Paine, KC Groves

Go to sleep my little darling

Go to sleep my honey child

Go to sleep my little baby

There's no need to weep and cry

 

Lay your head on the pillow

Lay your head close to mine

Don't you fear the lonesome howling

It's just the wind through the pine

 

Close your eyes and listen closely

Hear this song through the night

I'll be right here while you are dreaming 

Soon will come the morning light

Soon will come the morning light

 

TRAIN 45 traditional w/ additional lyrics by Greg Blake and KC Groves

If my poppa says no I'll railroad no more

I'll sidetrack this train and go home

oooh me oooh my I'll sidetrack this train and go home 

 

I wish I was a train 

Rolling down the track 

I'd push through your town and not look back

oooh me oooh my I'd push through your town and not look back

 

This train brought me here a long long time ago

Someday this train'll bring me home

oooh me oooh my someday this train'll bring me home
