'And I'm... I really pulled hard to bring her because'

0:03:270:03:33

she cuts such a wide swath in American music these days.

0:03:330:03:37

# She's down on the corner

0:04:050:04:09

# Just a little crime

0:04:090:04:14

# When I make my money

0:04:140:04:18

# Got to get my dime

0:04:180:04:22

# She down with her baby

0:04:220:04:26

# Wind is full of trash

0:04:260:04:31

# She's bold as a streetlight

0:04:310:04:35

# Dark and sweet as hash

0:04:350:04:38

# Way down in the hollow, leavin' so soon

0:04:380:04:47

# Oh, St Teresa

0:04:470:04:51

# Higher than the moon

0:04:510:04:56

# Reach down for the sweet stuff

0:05:130:05:17

# Way she looks at me

0:05:170:05:21

# I know any man sees you like I see

0:05:210:05:29

# Follow down the side street

0:05:290:05:34

# Move in single file

0:05:340:05:36

# She said, "That's where I'll hold you

0:05:360:05:42

# "sleepin' like a child"

0:05:420:05:45

# Way down in the hollow, leavin' so soon

0:05:450:05:55

# Oh, St Teresa

0:05:550:05:58

# Higher than the moon

0:05:580:06:03

# Oooh oooh

0:06:060:06:08

# Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

0:06:100:06:14

# Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

0:06:180:06:20

# You crawled up in the sky

0:06:200:06:23

# You crawled up in the clouds

0:06:230:06:28

# Is there something you forgot to tell me?

0:06:280:06:35

# Tell me?

0:06:360:06:40

# Tell me?

0:06:400:06:42

# Tell me, tell me, tell me?

0:06:420:06:52

# Show me, my Teresa, feel it rise in me

0:07:100:07:18

# Every stone a story

0:07:180:07:28

# Like a ro-o-o-sary. #

0:07:300:07:48

'I was really amazed at the way, you know, one by one everybody sort of fell into that group mind state,

0:07:560:08:02

'and these are people who only met each other recently.'

0:08:020:08:05

You usually wait for you know months and months, playing together with the same musicians

0:08:050:08:09

to get that kind of group mind cohesion.

0:08:090:08:11

And these guys, you know, are right there after three or four times of running the song.

0:08:110:08:17

# It was on one bright March morning

0:08:200:08:24

# I bid New Orleans adieu

0:08:250:08:30

# And I took the road to Jackson Town

0:08:310:08:36

# My fortune to renew

0:08:360:08:40

# I cursed all foreign money No credit could I gain

0:08:410:08:50

# Which filled my heart with longing For the lakes of Pontchartrain

0:08:510:09:00

# Well I stepped on board of a railroad car

0:09:040:09:10

# Beneath the morning sun

0:09:100:09:13

# I rode the rods till evening

0:09:150:09:20

# And I laid me down again

0:09:200:09:24

# All strangers there, no friends to me

0:09:260:09:31

# Till a dark girl towards me came

0:09:310:09:35

# And I fell in love with a Creole girl

0:09:370:09:41

# By the lakes of Pontchartrain

0:09:410:09:45

# I said, "Me pretty Creole girl My money here's no good

0:09:490:09:58

# "And if it weren't for the alligators

0:10:000:10:05

# "I'd sleep out in the wood"

0:10:050:10:09

# "You're welcome here, kind stranger Our house is very plain

0:10:100:10:20

# "But we never turned a stranger out On the banks of Pontchartrain"

0:10:210:10:29

# She took me into her mammy's house And she treated me right well

0:11:140:11:23

# The hair upon her shoulders In jet black ringlets fell

0:11:240:11:34

# To try to paint her beauty I'm sure it would be in vain

0:11:350:11:45

# So handsome was my Creole girl By the lakes of Pontchartrain

0:11:460:11:54

# I asked her if she'd marry me She said that this could never be

0:11:590:12:07

# For she had got a lover And he was far at sea

0:12:100:12:19

# She said that she would wait for him

0:12:200:12:25

# And true she would remain

0:12:250:12:30

# Till he'd return to his Creole girl By the Lakes of Pontchartrain

0:12:300:12:39

# So fare thee well, me bonny own girl

0:12:440:12:49

# I never may see you more

0:12:490:12:54

# But I'll ne'er forget your kindness In the cottage by the shore

0:12:550:13:04

# And at each social gathering A flowing glass I'll drain

0:13:050:13:16

# And I'll drink a health to my Creole girl

0:13:190:13:24

# By the lakes of Pontchartrain. #

0:13:240:13:27

Russ Barenberg's here again, for the third time.

0:13:460:13:49

He's a guitar player who can cover every base

0:13:490:13:53

SHE SINGS MEDLEY OF SONGS

0:19:330:19:38

When it's your turn, you know, you bring in your song...

0:21:580:22:01

..and kind of work it out like right now. And...

0:22:030:22:06

And then, you know, play it a number of times on camera

0:22:060:22:09

and basically go to the next one. So it's really organic.

0:22:090:22:13

It really builds itself from the song up.

0:22:130:22:17

# Well, it's fare thee well my true love

0:22:240:22:28

# The song is in the air

0:22:280:22:31

# I hear the West a-calling

0:22:310:22:34

# We'll see what's for me there

0:22:340:22:38

# With the sun I'm leaving

0:22:400:22:42

# I'll be Montana bound

0:22:420:22:46

# Ain't no use in grieving

0:22:460:22:49

# I'll show you what I've found

0:22:490:22:52

# Show you want I've found

0:22:520:22:56

# Yes, some folks have it easy

0:23:010:23:04

# At least that's how it seems

0:23:040:23:07

# They reach up and pick an apple

0:23:070:23:10

# Reach up and find a dream

0:23:100:23:14

# Some travel in the darkness

0:23:150:23:19

# And rest up in the shade

0:23:190:23:22

# Some wrestle with their demons

0:23:220:23:25

# And face them unafraid

0:23:250:23:29

# We argue for our better selves

0:23:310:23:34

# We only ask for more

0:23:340:23:37

# We take the mirror from the shelf

0:23:370:23:40

# And find the open door

0:23:400:23:43

# Find the open door. #

0:23:430:23:49

# I love you with a fever

0:24:200:24:23

# I love you with a past

0:24:230:24:27

# My heart is the keeper

0:24:270:24:30

# As long as it will last

0:24:300:24:33

# As long as it will last

0:24:330:24:37

# I'll tell you what I know

0:24:370:24:40

# We walk this road together

0:24:400:24:46

# Then we walk this road alone. #
