Track Name: 103
I'll see my birthday written on your stone
a cold reminder that I could feel so alone
But it only takes a memory of your smilin' face
To know that I've been blessed by your sweet love & grace
A grace that's gonna last far longer than the past
She was 103 and now she's finally free

She was 103 and now she's finally free
That's how I wanna be like my great Grannie

I'm gonna jig on my birthday. Spike the eggnog when I'm ornery
I'm gonna make sure everybody eats everything I can reach
I'm gonna tell jokes at the table; drink some beer while I'm able
She was 103 and now she's finally free

She was 103 and now she's finally free
That's how I wanna be like my great Grannie

And when the time comes for me to sleep
won't you tell me that you'll dress me in my best pink beads
Return me to the earth where my mothers lie
And give a little thanks for this amazing life
And plant a little red bud with hearts for leaves
You can say she was 103 and now she's finally free

She was 103 and now she's finally free
That's how I'm gonna be like my great Grannie
Track Name: The Gospel of Winfield
Oh I feel like I am in heaven when my spirit's so lightly abound
When the wind and rain are calling my name then the sun shines so brightly down
When my old guitar starts a-singin' and my heart beats like a drum
And my feet will dance to the rhythm of a bluegrass or old-time song

Sing with me. C'mon sing with me. Won't you sing with me tonight?
And dance with me. C'mon Dance with me. Won't you dance with me tonight?

Pull the parachute up in the treetops. Build a fire down below.
Pull the chairs and logs around us. Jimmy grab your old banjo.
We've got some pickin' to do now. We've got some music to make.
If we are lucky we won't stop 'til the next dawn starts to break.


And the kids are all so happy. And the mamas and papas are, too.
Cuz they don't have a care in the world now, save for the bluegrass stew.
Yes I'm sure that I am in heaven cuz my spirit's so lightly abound
By the Walnut River in the Pecan Grove with my Winfield family around

Makes some music with me tonight.
