All songs by Sam Baker (BlueLimeStone Publishing copyright 2013 SESAC)

except: 

-The Tattooed Woman - The melodic bridge and the musical interlude are to the tune of Picardy, a French medieval folk melody, dating to the seventeenth century. I learned the melody in the Presbyterian church in Itasca as a child. It was used in the hymn 'Let all Mortal Flesh Keep Silent'

- Road Crew inspired by E. Dickinson

- Feast inspired by W. B. Yeats

 -Sweet Hour of Prayer by William B. Bradbury 1816-1868

-Go in Peace by Sam Baker (SESAC BlueLimeStone) and Liz Rose (BMI Sony) and inspired by the hymn 'Come thy Fount of Every Blessing' words by Robert Robinson 1732-1790
