    MOTHERLAND

    Where in hell can you go
    Far from the things that you know
    Far from the sprawl of concrete
    That keeps crawling its way
    About one thousand miles a day?
    Take one last look behind
    Commit this to memory and mind
    Don't miss this wasteland, this
    Terrible place when you leave
    Keep your heart off your sleeve

    [Chorus]
    Motherland, cradle me
    Close my eyes
    Lullaby me to sleep
    Keep me safe
    Lie with me
    Stay beside me
    Don't go, don't you go

    [Verse 2]
    Oh, my five and dime queen
    Tell me what have you seen?
    The lust and the avarice
    The bottomless, the cavernous greed
    Is that what you see?

    [Chorus]
    Motherland, cradle me
    Close my eyes
    Lullaby me to sleep
    Keep me safe
    Lie with me
    Stay beside me
    Don't go

    [Verse 3]
    It's your happiness I want most of all
    And for that I'd do anything at all, o mercy me!
    If you want the best of it or the most of all
    If there's anything I can do at all
    Now come on shotgun bride
    What makes me envy your life?
    Faceless, nameless, innocent, blameless, and free
    What's that like to be?

    [Chorus]
    Motherland, cradle me
    Close my eyes
    Lullaby me to sleep
    Keep me safe
    Lie with me
    Stay beside me
    Don't go, don't you go

    The next gen of virtuosi guitarists, Stephanie Jones and Jacob Schmidt:

    Really great version of Leonard Cohen Hallelujah, duo guitar and I want to know who wrote that great arrangement:

    Dire Straits: Sultans of Swing

    The lyrics in this performance aren't that clear, but the music is great, especially after the vocals are done!
    Mark Knopfler talks with his mouth and sings with his guitar. The drummer also stands out!

    Jeff and Tim were stunning vocal musicians. Great choice.
