Track Name: Done it now
Well I guess I went and done it now
Tired of waitin on the fates who never cared for me nohow
Never got beyond these hills and I guess I never will
Never got out of my hometown and I guess I never will
Never get to glory neither, in my rage I could only see her standing in the place where I should be.

Well I never expected a woman to open your door.
I had suffered so much, I couldn't take no more.
Silly, silly, silly, silly girl

Well I came to look for you because I had no choice.
Lost my mind when I heard her voice
Pushed her in the well, she never made a sound as she fell
Tumblin, tumblin down.

I'm the one not chosen and I don't see why.
I look at her and I look at me and I wanna cry.
Silly, silly, silly, silly girl

Well I guess I went and done it now.
I was tryin to do the right thing but there's no right thing anyhow
Never got beyond these hills and I guess I never will
Never got out of my hometown and I guess I never will
Never get to glory neither and she'll never see the ground beneath her feet again
Silly, silly girl
I'm a silly, silly, silly, silly girl.

Well, I guess I went and done it now.
Track Name: I Lost One
Lyrics:
I lost one to the water that filled up her lungs
So many songs never be sung
I lost one to the spots that rose on her face
Her swollen little body a fat sausage encased in lace

Don’t call the doctor, it’s already too late
Don’t call the preacher, He’ll have to meet this one at the gate
Go call the carpenter to sharpen to up his saw
Cut us another for the little ones do fall

Make this one not of pine for it needs to be finer
Cherry for my cherry, rosy cheeked boy
We waited to name him, we wanted to be sure.
Suffer little one, suffer no more.

I lost one to the mud at the bottom of the pond
His cousin tried to save him but he’d been down too long
I lost one to the cold that seeps under the floor
My body is ravaged and my heart can’t take no more

Make this one not of ash for her flowing blonde hair
We’ll arrange it on the pillow before we bury it there.
She ran on ahead when she heard her horse call
We watched her run and we watched her fall

Don’t call the doctor, it’s already too late
Don’t call the preacher, He’ll have to meet this one at the gate
Go call the carpenter to sharpen to up his saw
Cut us another for the little ones do fall

Some women plant peas that pop sweet from the vine
Juicy watermelon to turn into wine
The seeds I have planted only will rot
When I dig in my garden, it’s a burial plot

Don’t call the doctor, no, it’s already too late
Don’t call the preacher, He’ll have to meet this one at the gate
Go call the carpenter to sharpen to up his saw
Cut us another for the little ones do fall
