Track Name: Doves & Drums
I remember when there was love
kissing in the river when we were young
so young and restless, young and restless

There were doves and there were drums
there was family in Wisconsin there was sadness in the sun
we hoped for better days, we prayed for better days

When it’s all said and done, there are roses in our songs

There are lovers, there is family
we plant a seed and pray for rain
Track Name: Saul Whitewater
Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
I work nights at the superstation
I got a wife, three daughters, three mouths to feed
that’s why I do it, why I deal with my supervisor

They call me last son of the automobile
Papa was a big-shot dealer whose shop went broke
we haven’t spoken in ten long years
since the army and the argument about serving

Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
I go to methodist church on Sundays
my youngest daughter won’t learn how to walk
and my oldest just rejected Pastor Stevens

But I got a wife that I love
Anna’s thirty-three but looks eighteen in my eyes
every year we’ll visit her stillborn son
brush the leaves and graffiti from his grave

Oh Anna it’s a perfect day
I ain’t that smart but I know that you love me
and I ain’t worried ’bout Tony from bingo
I know you’re friends and you see him every Monday

Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
and I call this town my life

Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
lets shake hands, Anna, we’ll be friends
