Track Name: Divided in the Rain
When the fireman came from washing his hands in the water
In the down pouring rain there he stands, waving his arms in the air
In the woman and the man he sees, divided they stand
In the rain

When they ring out the bells and the blistering sun burns the valley
All the children run out and they stand, waving their arms in the air
In the smoke and the fire we see, divided they stand
In the rain

In the red and the white and the blue they follow their way down to you
In the rocky red land they divide up their hands
and stand in the rain

When the snow falls like sand and the bottle runs dry in the evening
Will they scream, will they shout, and they talk
While waving their arms in the air
By the blue mountain moon we all knew, divided we stand
In the rain
Track Name: Memphis Summer Dream
Up through the dawn in a Vegas hotel
So alone, I do recall
Will the plane take me home to a Memphis summer dream?
Will I fall? Or not at all?

For a man is a soul that he knows what he been
It's a spirit in my bones that keeps on calling
When I walk through the gates of my own happy home
I will leave but a rose for dear ol' mama

Way on the hill off Highway 51
Is it all not said and done?
Once in a while I will sing another song
Before I go on tour again

For the Wolf River winds like a cold icy hand
That grips a man down to the bottom
As his spirit drifts alone to its own happy home
Will the song still live on and carry on?
