Track Name: Threnody for Kennedy and Connally
Pulled up by his boot legs
Into the White House parlor
They got him right on the money
His head on a half dollar

Next to a Texan
Schemer and scholar
Ten-gallon swagger
It's anyone's call who's the

One who took the bullet
To warrant omission
What trigger man could pull it
From any position
A profile in courage

Sing Happy Birthday
Mister President and

Tip your hat to Connally
Riding next to history
Take another bow and
See the umbrella man
Track Name: Shenandoah/Innsbruck
Oh, Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
Away you rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
Away, I'm bound away,
Across the wide Missouri.

Oh Shenandoah,
I love your daughter,
Away, you rolling river
The redskins' bank
lies on your border.
Away, I'm bound away,
Across the wide Missouri.
