“We Are the Lads”

We are the lads of Country Lad (Country Lad)
We are the lads of Country Lad (Country Lad),
Oh we are lads of Country Lad
We are lads of Mohawk fad,
No sad faces are we, Alleluia brother,
No sad faces are we (C C L).

Oh, we all go to Camp Country Lad
And the faces there are never, never, sad
Oh, the camp's all right
It's a Summer delight
Oh, we all go to Camp Country Lad


Cadillac, Cadillac, long and dark, shiny and black—
Open up and let your engines roar,
Cruisin’ down the highway like a big old dinosaur!

Hey, James Dean, in your Mercury ’49,
Cruisin’ down the highway through the woods of Caroline.
Even Burt Reynolds in his black TransAm
Still gonna end up at the Cadillac Ranch!

Hey little girlie in your blue jeans so tight
Drivin’ through the woods this Wisconsin night.
You’re my last hope, baby, you’re my last chance.
Don’t let ‘em take me to the Cadillac ranch!

“Mrs. Grady”

Oh Mrs. Grady, she was a lady,
She had a daughter whom I adored.
I used to court her—I mean her daughter—
Every Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday….
At half past four.

“Bill Grogan’s Goat”

Bill Grogan’s goat
Was feelin’ fine,
Ate three red shirts
Right off the line.
Bill took a stick,
Gave him three whacks,
And tied him to
The railroad tracks.

The whistle blew,
The train grew nigh—
Bill Grogan’s goat
Was doomed to die.
He gave three moans
Of mortal pain,
Coughed up the shirt,
And flagged the train.

“Mountain Dew”

They call it that good ol’ Mountain Dew,
And them that refuse it are few (mighty few).
I’ll hush up my mug if you fill up my jug
With that good ol’ Mountain Dew (yee-hoo)!

Well my Uncle Don had a still on the john
where he ran off a gallon or two.
When the cops gave a rush, he gave it a flush—and down
went all that good ol’ Mountain Dew!

Well my Uncle Mort was so sawed-off and short;
he stood about four-foot-two.
But he felt like a giant when you gave him a pint of
that good ol’ Mountain Dew!

Well my Auntie June had a sweet-smelling perfume
that gave off a terrible fume.
Much to our surprise, when we had it analyzed it was nothing but
that good ol’ Mountain Dew!

Well the preacher went by with his head held up high.
Said my wife had come down with the flu.
He said that I ought to give her a quot of
that good ol’ Mountain Dew!

Well my Uncle Sam had a still on the dam
where he ran off a gallon or two.
When the dam gave way, “Drink up!” I heard them say,
and down went all that good ol’ Mountain Dew!

"Country Roads”

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze.

Country Roads, take me home to the place I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads.

All my memories gather ‘round her,
Miner’s lady, strangers to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eye.

I hear her voice, in the morning hours she calls me.
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
And drivin’ down that road I get the feeling that
I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

Will the Circle Be Unbroken?”

Will the circle be unbroken, by and by Lord, by and by?
There’s a better home a-waitin’, in the sky, Lord, in the sky.

There are loved ones in the glory whose sweet forms you often miss.
When you close your earthly story, will you join them in their bliss?

In the joyous days of childhood, often told of wondrous love.
Pointed to the dyin’ Savior, now they dwell with him above.

You can picture happy gatherings ‘round the fireside long ago.
And you think of never parting, will they leave you here below?

One by one their seats are empty, one by one they all went away.
Now this family is all parted—will it be complete one day?

"Let’s Get Together”

Love is but a song we sing, and fear’s the way we die.
You can make the mountains ring, or make the angels cry.
Though the bird is on the wing, and you may not know why.

C’mon people now, smile on your brother,
Everybody get together, try to love one another right now.

Some will come and some will go, and we shall surely pass,
When the one who left us here returns for us at last.
We are but a moment’s sunlight fading in the grass.

If you hear the song I sing, you will understand.
You hold the key to love and fear in your trembling hand.
Just one key unlocks them both—it’s there at your command.

“Seek Ye First”

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God
And its righteousness.
And all these things shall be added unto you.
Allelu, Allelujah.

As and it shall be given unto you;
Seek and ye shall find.
Knock and it shall be opened unto you.
Allelu, Allelujah.

One Tin Soldier”

Listen, children, to a story that was written long ago.
‘Bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below.
On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone,
And the valley people swore they’d have it for their very own. 

Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven—justify it in the end.
There won’t be any trumpets blowin’, come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after one tin soldier rides away.

So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
Asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they’d kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom: “With our brothers we will share
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.”

Now the valley cried with anger, “Mount your horses, draw your sword!”
And they killed the mountain people so they won their just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure, on the mountain, dark and red.
Turned the stone and looked beneath it.  “Peace on Earth,” was all it said.

“If I Had a Hammer”

If I had a hammer, I’d hammer in the morning,
I’d hammer in the evening all over this land.
I’d hammer out danger, I’d hammer out warning,
I’d hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters, all over this land.

If I had a bell, I’d ring it in the morning,
I’d ring it in the evening all over this land.
I’d ring out danger, I’d ring out warning,
I’d ring out love between my brothers and my sisters, all over this land.

If I had a song, I’d sing it in the morning,
I’d sing it in the evening all over this land.
I’d sing out danger, I’d sing out warning,
I’d sing out love between my brothers and my sisters, all over this land.

Well I’ve got a hammer, and I’ve got a bell,
And I’ve got a song to sing all over this land.
It’s the hammer of justice, it’s the bell of freedom,
It’s a song about love between my brothers and my sisters, all over this land.
