Track Name: Run Joseph Run
Went down to the Tumen River

Went down to the river to pray

Lord, watch over my brothers and sisters

I pray that I’ll be back someday



Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



My father, he passed away

My sister, sold a slave

Does anyone out there hear my cries

Lord, let your kingdom come



And I said

Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



Ain’t got no food, ain’t got no home

Ain’t got no place to call my own

This river’s gonna be my saving grace

I just can’t live like this no more



Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



This may be my final hour

No time to be afraid

I head on down to the water’s edge

And I pray that I’ll be back someday

And I pray that I’ll be back someday



Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



Run, Joseph run

Run, Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land
Track Name: Ukiah
Ukiah, take me instead

Ukiah, take me instead

Bring back the son that brought me to life

Ukiah, take me instead



Time stands still

As I fall to my knees

Tell me this is all a dream

Tell me this is all a dream



Eyes to the sky

As I pound the ground

God, where are you now

Oh, God where are you now



Ukiah, take me instead

Ukiah, take me instead

Bring back the son that brought me to life

Ukiah, take me instead



Walking through

The darkest of nights

How do I carry on

How do I carry on



Memories of you

Like stars in the sky

I never got to say goodbye

I never got to say goodbye



Ukiah, take me instead

Ukiah, take me instead

Bring back the son that brought me to life

Ukiah, take me instead



Bring back the son that brought me to life

Ukiah, take me instead
Track Name: Hell Or High Water
Been so afraid

To let you in

But now these walls

Are caving in



I lay my pride

Down at your feet

Give me the courage

To set it free



Love me patient

Love me kind

Show me what you're trying to hide

Love me humble

Love me blind

Love me 'til the end of time



For years you held

Me in the dark

You saw me through

My bitter heart



I lay my doubts

Down at your door

Ain't afraid to love

You anymore



Love me patient

Love me kind

Show me what you're trying to hide

Love me humble

Love me blind

Love me 'til the end of time



Come hell or high water, we'll be together

Come hell or high water, we'll be together

Come hell or high water, we'll be together

Come hell or high water, we'll be together



Come hell or high water, we'll be together

Come hell or high water, we'll be together

Come hell or high water, we'll be together

Come hell or high water, we'll be together



Love me patient

Love me kind

Show me what you're trying to hide

Love me humble

Love me blind

Love me 'til the end of time



Love me patient

Love me kind

Show me what you're trying to hide

Love me humble

Love me blind

Love me 'til the end of time
Track Name: Shake The Dust
Bullets flyin’ cross the sky

Ain’t nowhere to run and hide

All our streets are painted red

All our brothers laid to rest



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust



Alton Sterling, say his name

Walter Scott ain’t here today

Eric Garner, he can’t breathe

Lord, oh Lord what’s happening



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust



Florida, we can hear your cries

Carolina, Jesus Christ

Sandy Hook, my baby’s gone

Dallas, Lord what’s going on



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust



Stomp the ground beneath your feet

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

Rattle the bones of your enemies

Shake the dust

Shake the dust



Stomp the ground beneath your feet

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

Rattle the bones of your enemies

Shake the dust

Shake the dust



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it's time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I've had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust
Track Name: After All That You've Done (Vonagarden cover)
After all that you’ve done

For me, for me

I look to heaven and say

Thank you, thank you



Now that you have my heart

Give it a brand new start

Taking these chains apart

And you set me free

You set me free



Hallelujah, you are good

You are good

To me



Hallelujah, you are good

You are good

To me



Hallelujah, you are good

You are good

To me



Hallelujah, you are good

You are good

To me



After all that you’ve done

For me, for me

I look to heaven and say

Thank you, thank you

Thank you, thank you

Thank you, thank you
