I’m tuning this,   it’s in acapella.   I’m not gonna be playin’.   (laughing)   Just outta habit, I guess.   Anyway, We’ll Soon Be Done   with Troubles and Trials.   One of these
days I’m goin’ home   Where no sorrows ever come   We’ll soon be done
with troubles and trials   Free from heartache
pain and care   We shall all that glory share   Sit down beside my Jesus   Sit down and
rest a little while   We’ll soon be done   We’ll soon be done
with troubles and trials   In that home on the other side   I’m gonna shake glad
hands with the elders   Tell my kindred good mornin’   Sit down beside my Jesus   Sit down and
rest a little while   I shall behold
His blessed face   I shall feel His
matchless grace   We’ll soon be done
with troubles and trials   Oh what peace and joy sublime   In that home of love divine   Sit down beside my Jesus   Sit down and
rest a little while   We’ll soon be done   We’ll soon be done

hands with the elders   Tell my kindred good mornin’   Sit down beside my Jesus   Sit out and rest
a little while   Sit down beside my Jesus   And Lord I’m gone   Sit down and
rest a little while   (audience applauds)   Well Jesus heard me prayin’   He hears the words
that I’m sayin’   I just washed my soul   In the waters from on high   I say mean and evil
thoughts around me   And the evil
deeds would bind me   King Jesus if you
leave me I will die   I will die   Oh Jesus hide me   ‘Til the storm is over   Won’t you rock me in
the cradle of Thy love   Feed me from Thy
blessed hands of love   ‘Til I want no more   Take me to that
blessed home above   Home above   Now won’t you make
my future brighter   And make my burdens lighter   And help me to do
good wherever I can   I say when the host
of sin surrounds me   And the evil
deeds would bind me   King Jesus hold me in
the hallow of Thy hand   Of thy hand   Oh Jesus hide me   ‘Til the storm is over   Won’t you rock me in
the cradle of Thy love   Feed me from Thy
blessed hands of love   ‘Til I want no more   Take me to that
blessed home above   Home above   Oh Jesus hide me   ‘Til the storm is over   Won’t you rock me in
the cradle of Thy love   Feed me from Thy
blessed hands of love   ‘Til I want no more   Take me to that
blessed home above   Take me to that
blessed home above   Home above   (audience applauds)   Thank you very much.   Why is it always the
smallest guy in the group   is the one that sings the bass?   So uh, anyway,
without further adieu,   this is called My
Window Faces the South.   (upbeat bluegrass music)   My window faces the South   I’m almost halfway to Heaven   The snow is fallin’
but all I can see   Are those fields of cotton   Wavin’ back at me   Yeah my window faces the South   Though I am far
from that Swanee   Oh I’m never frowning
or down in the mouth   My window faces the South   (banjo solo)   (guitar solo)   (upbeat bluegrass)   Oh my window faces the South   I’m almost halfway to Heaven   The snow is fallin’
but all I can see   Are those fields of cotton   Wavin’ back at me   Yeah my window faces the South   Though I am far
from that Swanee   Oh I’m never frowning
or down in the mouth   My window faces the South   My window faces down South   (audience applauds)   – Thank you very much.   If you like coal mining songs,   here’s one called The
Bottom of a Mountain.   – [Voiceover] Up next,
the energetic mix   of quality bluegrass
and gospel music   with Joe Mullins and
the Radio Ramblers.   I was born in West Virginia   Where the land   Is black with coal   For a man to feed his family   It takes 12 hours a day   Diggin’ in a dirty black hole   Way down   In the bottom of the mountain   Way down in the
bottom of a hole   Way down   In the bottom of a mountain   I’m diggin’ and sweatin’   Loading that dirty black coal   Some men give   Their wives jewelry   Some men give   Their wives gold   But all I give
to my sweet woman   Is a few dollars made   Diggin’ out dirty black coal   Way down   In the bottom of a mountain   Way down in the
bottom of a hole   Way down   In the bottom of a mountain   I’m diggin’ and sweatin’   Loading that dirty black coal   (banjo solo)   (fiddle solo)   I draw script   For most of my money   I never see   A lot of that   I work all week and
go to church Sunday   And I pay the preacher   When they pass the hat   Way down   In the bottom of a mountain   Way down in the
bottom of a hole   Way down   In the bottom of a mountain   I’m diggin’ and sweatin’   Loading that dirty black coal   Way down   (upbeat banjo)   I’m diggin’ and sweatin’   Loading that dirty black coal   Whoa whoa   (audience applauds)   – Everybody takes a turn now,   when somebody lights
in on somethin’,   you just go nuts.   This is called the
Steel Guitar Rag.   (fast bluegrass)   (guitar)   That’s his (unclear) lick,
let’s hear it for him!   (fiddle solo)   Big finish now.   Big Minnesota finish.   (audience applauds)   We had a Facebook
request come in   while we were on
the road yesterday.   Some folks said we can
only be there Saturday   and they wanted
to hear this song.   On this cold November morning   Here I stand   At the grave site of
a long forgotten man   Thinking of the
friends he lost   For love of gold   This sad story
through the years   Has oft been told   Fallen leaves that lie
scattered on the ground   The birds and flowers   That were here
can not be found   All the friends he ever had   Are not around   They are scattered   Like the leaves
upon the ground   Lord let my eyes
see every need   Of every man   Make me stop and always lend   A helping hand   Then when I’m laid beneath   That little grassy mound   There’ll be more
friends around   Than leaves upon the ground   (fiddle solo)   Some folks drift
along through life   And never thrill   To the feeling   That a good deed brings until   It’s too late
and they are ready   To lie down   There beneath the leaves   All scattered on the ground   To your grave
there’s no use taking   Any gold   You can’t use it   When it’s time
for hands to fold   When you leave this
earth for a better   Home someday   The only things you’ll take   Are what you gave away   Fallen leaves that lie
scattered on the ground   The birds and flowers   That were here
can not be found   All the friends he ever had   Are not around   They are scattered   Like the leaves
upon the ground   (audience applauds)   Winos   Skid Row Joes   Some on vagrancy   They got all kinds
in the Boston jail   Now they got me   (upbeat bluegrass)   In the county
jail in old Boston   They got all kinds you see   From all walks
of like they come   All lost their liberty   Now some’s got
wives just outside   Waitin’ for their return   Long timers short timers   Some are waitin’ to burn   Wino Skid Row Joe   Some on vagrancy   They got all kinds
in the Boston jail   Now they got me   (fiddle solo)   Now some will
say just yesterday   I really had the jack   But paper and pen
got me locked in   Them checks come
a bouncin’ back   And late at night
when the lights go out   They tell their tales of woe   About old friends
and places they’ve been   And where they’d like to go   Wino Skid Row Joe   Some on vagrancy   They got all kinds
in the Boston jail   Now they got me   (banjo solo)   It ain’t gonna last.   (laughing)   It ain’t, it ain’t.   You all hang in there with us.   But it’s too late
their big mistakes   Condemn them to a cell   Where every dream’s
a forgotten thing   Each day’s a living hell   Listen guys if you’re wise   From this town you’ll run   Or else you’ll find
you’re pullin’ time   In the jail in old Boston   Wino Skid Row Joe   Some on vagrancy   They got all kinds
in the Boston jail   Now they got me   Wino Skid Row Joe   Some on vagrancy   They got all kinds
in the Boston jail   Now they got me   (audience applauds)
Thank you!   See you in the morning!   We’ll do this and
be out of the way.   It’s called I Wanna Be
Loved But Only By You.   I want to be kissed   But only by your lips dear   For you’re the only
one who’ll ever do   I want someone to
hug and call me honey   I want to be loved
but only by you   I want someone to
help me in my sorrow   I want someone whose
heart to me is true   Somebody who will
stay with me forever   I want to be loved
but only by you   – [Voiceover] Thank
you for watching   Grass Land Jam.   Join us next time
for more bluegrass   and old time music.   – [Voiceover] Funding
