Werner Rohlfs It’s wonderful music, very easy to listen to and enjoyable because of its harmonies and the great skill of the musicians. I like the special combination of cello + bass.

Waterbound 02:55
I went out late one night Moon and stars were shining bright Storm come up and the trees come down Tell you boys I was waterbound Waterbound on a stranger's shore River rising to my door Carried my home to the field below Waterbound nowhere to go Carved my name on an old barn wall No one'd know I was there at all Stables dry on a winter night You turn your head you could see the light Black cat crawling on an old box car Rusty moon and a falling star Ain't Got a dime in my rations sack Waterbound and I can't get back Its i'm gone and I won't be back Don't believe me count my tracks River's long and the river's wide I'll meet you boys on the other side So say my name and don't forget Water still ain't got me yet Nothing but I'm bound to roam Waterbound and I can't get home

Lazy John 03:16
I got a guy who lives by the road, Eyes are crooked and his legs are bowed, But he sure is a lot of fun, Why don't you get away, Lazy John. Lazy John, Lazy John Why don't you get your day's work all done. I'm in the shade, you're in the sun, Why don't you get away, Lazy John. I woke up at the break of day, Down to the fields try to earn my pay, Then much later you came along, Why don't you get away, Lazy John. Lazy John, Lazy John Why don't you get your day's work all done. I'm in the shade, you're in the sun, Why don't you get away, Lazy John. We're gonna dance on Saturday night, We're gonna dance 'til the morning light, Then I'm gonna take my sweetie back home, Why don't you get away, Lazy John. Lazy John, Lazy John Why don't you get your day's work all done. I'm in the shade, you're in the sun, Why don't you get away, Lazy John. Lazy John, Lazy John Why don't you get your day's work all done. I'm in the shade, you're in the sun, Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Train on the island, listen to her squeal Go and tell my true love happy I do feel Go and tell my true love happy I do feel Train on the island, headed for the west Run and tell my true love, the boy I love the best Run and tell my true love, the boy I love the best Steam from the whistle, smoke from the stack Gotta catch that 5:18, I'm never comin' back Gotta catch that 5:18, I'm never comin' back Train on the island, thought I heard her squeal Go and tell my true love I can't hold the wheel Go and tell my true love I can't hold the wheel Train on the island, moaning mighty low Run and tell my true love I'm sick and I can't go Run and tell my true love I'm sick and I can't go Train on the island, headed for the north Run and tell my true love he don't know what he's worth Run and tell my true love he don't know what he's worth Run and tell my true love happy I do feel Run and tell my true love happy I do feel

Lady Margret was standing in her own room door A comb in her long yellow hair When who did she spy but sweet William and his bride
 to the churchyard they drew near Well day passed away the night came on Most of the men were asleep
 Lady Margret appeared all dressed in white Standing at his bed feet She said "How do you like your bed? And how do you like your sheet? And how do you like your fair, young bride That's laying in your arms asleep?" He said "Very well do I like my bed. Much better do I like my sheet. 
But most of all that fair, young girl That’s laying in my arms asleep" Then once he kissed her lily white hand And twice he kissed her cheek Three times he kissed her cold corpsy lips Then he fell into her arms asleep. Well night passed away and the day came on
 and Into the morning light 
Sweet William said "I'm troubled in my head For the dreams that I dreamed last night. "Such dreams, such dreams as these I know they mean no good. For I dreamed that my bower was full of red swine And my bride's bed full of blood." 
He asked "Is Lady Margret in her room? Or is she out in the hall?" But Lady Margret lay in a cold, dark coffin with Her face turned to the wall. Roll back, Roll back those snow white robes Be they ever so fine. And let me kiss those cold corpsy lips For I know they'll never kiss mine. Then once he kissed her lily white hand And twice he kissed her cheek Three times he kissed her cold corpsy lips Then he fell into her arms asleep

about

Run Boy Run's debut recording following their win at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition in 2011, this five track EP showcases their distinct three part female harmony and string rich arrangements of four traditional bluegrass and old-time songs, including the haunting a cappela ballad, "Lady Margaret", and a lonesome version of Dirk Powell's "Waterbound." Available September 15, 2011 from Sky Island Records.
