Laura Siersema, electric piano, vocal; Bruce J. LeBlanc, drums; Nate Comp, guitar; Jay Hovnanian, bass and keyboard programming; T Lavitz, organ; Marcelo Woloski, congas, shakers, tambourine.

WADE IN THE WATER (traditional; additional lyrics by Laura Siersema)
Wade in the water
wade in the water children
wade in the water
God's a gonna trouble the water

Jordan's river is chilly and cold
saw the bullet holes around you
chills the body but lifts the soul
there are no questions

If you get there before I do
wants to save Tibet but he would run you over
tell my sisters
that I hear them calling--

c2009 Laura Siersema
