In The Dark
Coming Home
As I Remember
Stand And Testify
Quiet As Quiet I Want
In The Field Before The Cutting
Coming Home
Your sister is leaving.  If you want to
tell her that someday, when you are older,
the two of you will get married. 

But she was about your age when her daddy left. 
She saw him going and said to his back,
"Aren't you going to say goodbye, Daddy?"
He looked back, he looked down at her. 
He said, "Goodbye."

She is not coming home;
she's getting married.
Say goodbye now.
