about

This collection of old-tyme inspired songs were recorded live in the loft of an old abandoned house in the prairies of rural Manitoba - Venlaw to be more specific, where Kayla grew up. Meant to capture a snapshot in time, Kayla Luky and Benjamin Hadaller breath life into the bare-bone songs with their acoustic instruments and harmonies, perfectly complimented by the drip of melting snow and the creaks of a forgotten house sighing in the winter wind.

Track Name: Sing It On A Mountain
Go sing it on a mountain my babe he's gone away
Headed west to the Rockies gone first thing in the spring
Although my heart is aching in comfort I will find
Memories of your hands in mine

How long 'til you're coming home? How long the days have been
There'll be joy placed in my heart when you come back to me
How long 'til you're coming home? Back where you belong
The plains aren't the same without you here
You are the one I want

Don't worry babe I'll be back in the fall
Plant your memories in the soil we'll see what will become
Go sing it on a mountain keep writing all those songs
Soon you'll be back in my arms

How long 'til I'm coming home? How long the days have been
My hands they are weary and my heart is wearing thin
How long 'til I'm coming home? Back where I belong
The northern winds are blowing strong
You are the one I want

Go sing it on a mountain one that's proud and tall
Oh these hills of the prairies they're not like here at all
Go sing it on a mountain lord I love you still
Nothing's the same without you dear
You are the one I want
You are the one I want
You are the one I want
Track Name: These Plains
I've been working in the fields with a prayer on my back
I've been hoping that the soil will someday make us rich
No this freedom ain't free and if it be the death of me
Making memories in this ground for better times a comin'

Cause we've gone far and we've gone wide
Travelled these plains for a hopes of a better life
So don't you cry and don't you weep
We've got each other now and that's all we need

I've been working in the kitchen with a prayer on my breath
Been slaving for nothing and I miss my old home land
No this freedom ain't free and if it be the death of me
Making memories in this home for better times a comin'

Cause we've gone far and we've gone wide
Travelled these plains for a hopes of a better life
So don't you cry and don't you weep
We've got each other now and that's all we need

As the dawn creeps in the babe's are fast asleep
I'll be by your side
I won't say a word I won't say a thing
But I love you 'til the day I die

Cause we've gone far and we've gone wide
Travelled these plains for a hopes of a better life
So don't you cry and don't you weep
We've got each other now and that's all we need
We've got each other now and that's all we need
Track Name: Red Rock Waltz
The man that I love he don't want me anymore
His blue eyes have been haunting since he walked out that door
He's gone and left me he's not coming back
He's gone gone gone

The girl that I love she don't want me anymore
Her blue eyes have been haunting since she walked out that door
She's gone and left me she ain't coming back
She's gone gone gone

If you bring the whiskey I'll bring the gin
We'll waltz ourselves over and try to forget
About the love that's gone and left us on those red rocky shores
The sun's going down on the water

If you bring the whiskey I'll bring the gin
We'll waltz ourselves over and try to forget
About the love that's gone and left us on those red rocky shores
The sun's going down on the water
Track Name: May You Sleep Well
Sometimes I get a lonely
Sometimes I get a little scared
If you're feeling alone may the truth be heard and told
That the clock's a tickin' on your numbered days

Don't cry for me my sweet mother
Don't cry for me don't you weep
Your love will shine on and through all I've done wrong
Keep it all for the sins I'll never tell

Goodnight my sweet little baby
Goodnight and may you sleep well
I'm leaving godspeed first in the morning
When the sun hits that first evening star
