Say can you see by the dawn's early light The birds in flight At such a dizzying height Our flag still waves in the dusk Who do you trust? When love turns to dust Who do you trust? I'm still free I'm still free And I'll tell the world about it 'Cause I got no doubt about it I want a love that will bind All of time Will you be mine Give me a sign Here's a salute to the old Stars and stripes From such a dizzying height To the morning light I'm still free I'm still free And I'll tell the world about it 'Cause I got no doubt about it I'm still free I'm still free And I'll tell the world about it 'Cause I got no doubt about it

I don't want to fight your war tonight Put away all your guns and knives I am waiting Lorelei I don't want to see the streets tonight I am so weary and so tired I am waiting Lorelei Violence holds The scene below People act out their paces Go through their places Burn all the traces We alone Carry forth We are two so despite what you do Despite what you see Don't give up We're gonna be free Lorelei

One last look Before the coal Rustling brook In Farmington One last look Before I run One last dream Before the soot Drifts through the seam Trembles underfoot One last dream Before the dirt One last kiss Before the hill Bursts through the mist Little Dunkard Mill One last kiss I love you still
4.
Nobody has to know Girl we've fallen so in love It was just a year ago And you've kept it to yourself Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Girl our love has grown so strong Close the shades Unplug the phone How can our love be so wrong Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Girl we've fallen so in love It was just a year ago And you've kept it to yourself Nobody has to know Nobody has to know

Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through Late one night I heard you at my door But I pretended like I wasn’t home Please forgive Me for what I’ve done But you know I would’ve done it Like I did before Ray of light Won’t shine through What can I do What can I do Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through

Blue is such a cold shelter Blue is such a cold shelter Blue is the color of the sky Blue is the color of her eyes Blue is the color of the mountains Blue is the color of the sea Blue is such a cold shelter Blue is such a cold shelter

From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return

The Depression It ruined us It ruined us It ruined us The Depression It ruined us It ruined us It ruined us Oh Marilyn Everything When the market crashed Our hopes were dashed We lost everything Everything When the winter came We lost everything Couldn't afford to stay Oh Marilyn We’d really like to keep you in Oh Marilyn We’d really like to keep you in Memories Disparate memories Of New York In the 1930s Memories Of the frozen lake And the way we tried To keep her safe Oh Marilyn There was no one left at home to let you in Oh Marilyn There was no one left at home to let you in

Three o’clock in the morning Snowing and I can’t go home Coming down in Kingston Christmas Eve the roads are closed Just like Walter Gibson Knowing what the Shadow knows And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes Candy shop quartet Free coffee and chocolate Dreaming of the pine needles Waiting for my next set Hallucinating wonders Drying out like Benedict And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes They burned our homes They burned our homes Commander of the troops I tried to capture Bemis Heights Talking in tongues They couldn’t get to me on time Forced to retreat I turned and ran to safety in the pines And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes

Now I work all day and all night For you For you And I have a part in everything For you For you For you For you For you For you For you For you All my thoughts and all my chains For you For you And the moon and the stars sunrise For you For you For you For you For you For you For you For you Now I work all day and all night For you For you

Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus If you hear my last breath Don't leave me here Left to die a lonely death I know I have sinned But lord I’m suffering Jesus, oh Jesus If you hear my last breath Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone All my troubles All my pain Will leave me once again

Pioneertown is a place in Joshua Tree National Forest. You drive on a highway to get there, and a paved street runs through the center of town, but mostly the roads are made of ancient dirt. Any particular road leads to the park. The park’s filled with twisting cacti called Joshua Trees. There’s hundreds of thousands of them. After walking about twenty feet you’re in an alien world.

Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace is a music venue and hotel that’s been in Pioneertown since 1982. There are hitching posts out front. Inside, there’s sawdust on the floor and big long wooden tables with benches so everyone has to sit next to each other if they want to eat. Further inside there’s a small stage with small tables and some booths in front of it. There’s a small bar in the corner. If you walk out the back door you’ll see some shed-like houses that are for sale, and a dirt-covered parking lot.

I’ve always wanted Spain to play at Pappy & Harriet’s. On October 6, 2016, the opportunity finally came. We were joined onstage by two incredible musicians. Acclaimed folk singer and Joshua Tree resident Victoria Williams, and Lucio Menegon, a guitar genius who has recorded with our Danny Frankel amongst many others. In the audience were some old friends from my college days and I very much appreciated seeing them again. Cory Courtney took the photos and I thank him for his keen eye, and Brian Blueskye, music journalist, for helping to promote the show.

I liked this gig a lot. It happened two days after our “Bo Diddley Night” at the Love Song (see our Bandcamp page for the 4 Oct. 2016 recording), which explains the inclusion of “Bo Diddley” here. Thank you Joshua Trees, Pappy & Harriet’s, and Danny Frankel for hooking us up.
