Track Name: Mortar and Pestle
I found a quiet corner in a crowded house
I made my way through many rooms some were loud and bright as tombs
Some were lonely and some were dark with so many people I couldn't hear my heart
But then you came along and you sang this song
Track Name: Oh, Maiden Fair
I once knew a maiden her hair shone like gold
I went to her father with hopes to be told
My word and my honour would win o'er her heart
But much to my sadness he asked me to part

My hopes to be married were dashed in between
The crushing of his words, of reality

I vowed to my lady that I would return
Love's flame never dimming but brightly does burn
From now till forever I wander the world
In search of my fortune to marry a girl

My hopes to be married aren't dashed by all means
I'll find a great fortune by land or by sea
And if in adventure my life is at stake
Twill be worth the effort if love we do make
Track Name: God's Word
The celebration never ends when I'm here with all my friends
The wine is flowing oh so free into my mouth and all through me

And to the mountains oh so high like a mountain goat I climb
And while the Lord speaks to my soul now is the time to give me gold

My head is light my feet are swift if you catch me in my drift
So give me jewels and the crown and while you're at it keys to town

The celebration never ends when I'm here with all my friends
The wine is flowing oh so free into my mouth and all through me
