    "You Are My Sunshine"

    by Norman Blake

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
    I dreamed I held you in my arms
    But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
    So I hung my head and I cried.

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    You'll never know dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away

    I'll always love you and make you happy,
    If you will only say the same.
    But if you leave me and love another,
    You'll regret it all some day:

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    You'll never know dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away

    You told me once, dear, you really loved me
    And no one else could come between.
    But not you've left me and love another;
    You have shattered all of my dreams:

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    You'll never know dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away

    In all my dreams, dear, you seem to leave me
    When I awake my poor heart pains.
    So when you come back and make me happy
    I'll forgive you dear, I'll take all the blame.

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    You'll never know dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away

    "Down To The River To Pray"

    by Alison Krauss

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    As I went down in the river to pray
    Studying about that good old way
    And who shall wear the starry crown
    Good Lord, show me the way !

    O sisters let's go down,
    Let's go down, come on down,
    O sisters let's go down,
    Down in the river to pray.

    As I went down in the river to pray
    Studying about that good old way
    And who shall wear the robe and crown
    Good Lord, show me the way !

    O brothers let's go down,
    Let's go down, come on down,
    Come on brothers let's go down,
    Down in the river to pray.

    As I went down in the river to pray
    Studying about that good old way
    And who shall wear the starry crown
    Good Lord, show me the way !

    O fathers let's go down,
    Let's go down, come on down,
    O fathers let's go down,
    Down in the river to pray.

    As I went down in the river to pray
    Studying about that good old way
    And who shall wear the robe and crown
    Good Lord, show me the way !

    O mothers let's go down,
    Come on down, don't you want to go down,
    Come on mothers let's go down,
    Down in the river to pray.

    As I went down in the river to pray
    Studying about that good old way
    And who shall wear the starry crown
    Good Lord, show me the way !

    O sinners let's go down,
    Let's go down, come on down,
    O sinners let's go down,
    Down in the river to pray.

    As I went down in the river to pray
    Studying about that good old way
    And who shall wear the robe and crown
    Good Lord, show me the way !

    "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues"

    by Chris Thomas King

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Hard time here and everywhere you go
    Times is harder than ever been before

    And the people are driftin' from door to door
    Can't find no heaven, I don't care where they go

    Hear me tell you people, just before I go
    These hard times will kill you just dry long so

    Well, you hear me singin' my lonesome song
    These hard times can last us so very long

    If I ever get off this killin' floor
    I'll never get down this low no more
    No-no, no-no, I'll never get down this low no more

    And you say you had money, you better be sure
    'Cause these hard times will drive you from door to door

    Sing this song and I ain't gonna sing no more
    Sing this song and I ain't gonna sing no more
    These hard times will drive you from door to door

    "Keep On The Sunny Side"

    by The Whites

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    There's a dark & a troubled side of life
    There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
    Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
    The sunny side we also may view

    [cho:] Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
    Keep on the sunny side of life
    It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
    If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

    The storm and its fury broke today,
    Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear;
    Clouds and storms will, in time, pass away
    The sun again will shine bright and clear.
    Let us greet with the song of hope each day
    Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair
    Let us trust in our Saviour away
    Who keepeth everyone in His care

    "I'll Fly Away"

    by Gillian Welch & Alison Krauss

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Some bright morning when this life is o'er
    I'll fly away
    To that home on God's celestial shore
    I'll fly away.

    I'll fly away, oh Glory
    I'll fly away in the morning
    When I die Hallelujah, by and by
    I'll fly away.

    When the shadows of this life have gone
    I'll fly away
    Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly
    I'll fly away.

    I'll fly away, oh Glory
    I'll fly away in the morning
    When I die Hallelujah, by and by
    I'll fly away.

    Oh, how glad and happy when we meet
    I'll fly away
    No more cold iron shackles on my feet
    I'll fly away.

    I'll fly away, oh Glory
    I'll fly away in the morning
    When I die Hallelujah, by and by
    I'll fly away.

    I'll fly away, oh Glory
    I'll fly away in the morning
    When I die Hallelujah, by and by
    I'll fly away.

    Just a few more weary days and then
    I'll fly away
    To a land where joys will never end
    I'll fly away.

    I'll fly away, oh Glory
    I'll fly away in the morning
    When I die Hallelujah, by and by
    I'll fly away.

    When I die Hallelujah, by and by
    I'll fly away...

    "Didn't Leave Nobody But The Baby"

    by Emmylou Harris

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    Your momma's gone away and your daddy's gonna stay
    Didn't leave nobody, but the baby

    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    Everybody's gone in the cotton and the corn
    Didn't leave nobody, but the baby

    You're a sweet little baby (you're a sweet little baby)
    You're a sweet little baby (you're a sweet little baby)
    Honey and the rock and the sugar don't stop
    Gonna bring a bottle to the baby

    Don't you weep pretty baby (don't you weep pretty baby)
    Don't you weep pretty baby (don't you weep pretty baby)
    She's long gone with her red shoes on
    Gonna need another lovin' baby

    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    You and me and the devil makes three
    Don't need no other lovin' baby

    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    Go to sleep you little baby (go to sleep you little baby)
    Come and lay your bones on the alabaster stones and be my ever lovin' baby

    "I Am Weary (Let Me Rest)"

    by The Cox Family

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
    Lay my head upon your breast
    Throw your loving arms around me
    I am weary let me rest

    Seems the light is swiftly fading
    Brighter scenes they do now show
    I am standing by the river
    Angels wait to take me home

    Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
    See the pain upon my brow
    While I'll soon be with the angels
    Fate has doomed my future now

    Through the years you've always loved me
    And my life you've tried to save
    But now I shall slumber sweetly
    In a deep and lonely grave

    Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
    Lay my head upon your breast
    Throw your loving arms around me
    I am weary let me rest
    I am weary let me rest

    "O Death"

    by Ralph Stanley

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Oh Death,
    Whoa, death!
    Won't you spare me over 'til another year?

    Well, what is this, that I can't see?
    Both ice-cold hands taken hold of me
    Well, I am death none can excel
    I'll open the door to heaven or hell

    Oh, Death, well, someone would pray
    Could you wait to call me another day?
    The children prayed, the preacher preached
    Time and mercy is out of your reach

    I'll fix your feet 'til you can't walk
    I'll lock your jaw 'til you can't talk
    I'll close your eyes so you can't see
    This very hour, come and go with me

    Death, I come to take the soul
    Leave the body and leave it cold
    To drop the flesh off of the frame
    The earth and worms both have a claim

    Oh Death,
    Whoa, death!
    Won't you spare me over 'til another year?

    My mother came to my bed,
    Placed a cold towel upon my head
    My head is warm, my feet are cold
    Death is a' movin' upon my soul

    Oh death! How you're treatin' me
    You closed my eyes so I can't see
    Well, you're hurtin' my body, you make me cold
    You run my life right out of my soul

    Oh Death! Please consider my age
    Please don't take me at this stage
    My wealth is all at your command
    If you will move your icy hand

    Oh the young, the rich or poor
    All alike me, you know
    No wealth, no land, no silver, no gold
    Nothin' satisfies me but your soul

    Oh death!
    Whoa, death!
    Won't you spare me over to another year
    Won't you spare me over to another year
    Won't you spare me over to another year

    "In The Jailhouse Now"

    by The Soggy Bottom Boys

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I had a friend named Ramblin Bob
    He used to steal gamble and rob
    He thought he was the smartest guy around
    Well I found out last Monday that Bob got locked up Sunday
    They've got him in the jailhouse way downtown

    He's in the jailhouse now
    He's in the jailhouse now
    Well, I told him once or twice to stop playin cards and shootin dice
    He's in the jailhouse now

    Bob liked to play his poker
    Pinochle whist and euchre
    But shootin dice was his favorite game
    He got throw'd in jail with nobody to go his bail
    The judge done said that he refused to the fine

    He's in the jailhouse now
    He's in the jailhouse now
    Well, I told him once or twice to stop playin cards and shootin dice
    He's in the jailhouse now

    Well I went out last Tuesday
    I met a girl named Suzie
    I said I was the swellest guy around
    Well we got to spendin my money
    And she started to callin me honey
    We took in every cabaret in town
    We're in the jailhouse now

    We're in the jailhouse now
    We're in the jailhouse now
    Well I told that judge right to his face
    I don't like to see this place
    We're in the jailhouse now

    "I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow"

    by The Soggy Bottom Boys

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (In constant sorrow through his days )

    I am a man of constant sorrow
    I've seen trouble all my day.
    I bid farewell to old Kentucky
    The place where I was born and raised.

    (The place where he was born and raised)

    For six long years I've been in trouble
    No pleasures here on earth I found
    For in this world I'm bound to ramble
    I have no friends to help me now.

    (He has no friends to help him now)

    It's fare thee well my old true lover
    I never expect to see you again
    For I'm bound to ride that northern railroad
    Perhaps I'll die upon this train.

    (Perhaps he'll die upon this train)

    You can bury me in some deep valley
    For many years where I may lay
    Then you may learn to love another
    While I am sleeping in my grave.

    (While he is sleeping in his grave)

    Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
    My face you'll never see no more.
    But there is one promise that is given
    I'll meet you on God's golden shore.

    (He'll meet you on God's golden shore)

    Nobody else, nobody else can go for you

    O bear me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home
