Lyrics: I am bound for the promised land, I am bound for the promised land; Oh who will come and go with me? I am bound for the promised land. When I shall reach that happy place, Ill be forever blessed, For I shall see my Fathers face, And in His bosom rest.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-cMG8RVvas
Lyrics: Wish I was an apple dangling from a tree, Every time youd pass me by youd take a bite of me, I wish I was a bluebird Id never fly away, Id sit up on your shoulder baby and sing to you all day. Come on home Cindy Cindy, Come on home Cindy Cindy Come on home Cindy Cindy, Come on home to mehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sURMv4pt4aE&feature=related
Lyrics: Hear that lonesome whippoorwill? He sounds too blue to fly. The midnight train is whining low: Im so lonesome I could cry. Ive never seen a night so long, When time goes crawling by. The moon just went behind a cloud, To hide its face and cry.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxHb35me4A8
