Fantastic original songwriting and stellar instrumental work on this,
Blue Highway’s 11th studio album. Play ‘em all!

1 – (3:27) Don’t Weep For Me* Old-timey modal murder & retribution ballad, mid.
2 – (2:18) If Lonesome Don’t Kill Me* Fast love lament, terrific playing!
3 – (3:38) Water From The Stone* Sad breakup song, just lovely, mid-tempo.
4 – (2:38) Last Time I’ll Ever Leave This Town* Mid-up heartbreaker, nice.
5 – (2:23) Alexander’s Run* Up-tempo instrumental, great picking here!
6 – (3:33) Hallelujah* Terrific a capella gospel quartet.
7 – (2:49) What You Wanted Decent mid-tempo weeper.
8 – (2:42) The Story Of My Life* Mid-up dark modal tune of evil stepfather, nice.
9 – (3:57) Wilkes County Clay* Dark murder tune, ¾ time, haunting & great.
10 – (3:06) A Long Row To Hoe* Fine mid-tempo ode to the farmer.
11 – (3:26) She Ain’t Worth It* Funny breakup tune, bouncy & mid-tempo, excellent.
12 – (3:38) Top Of The Ridge* Fantastic reflective song about life, lilting ¾ time, wow!
