The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse / Ray Wylie Hubbard

Black and red, white and pale
Death and war, famine and pestilence
The end will begin with the sound of approaching hoof beats
Of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse

Ashes to Ashes / Steve Earle

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust...
They drew a line in the sand and made their last stand

The Earth Died Screaming / Tom Waits

There was thunder
There was lightning
Then the stars went out
And the moon fell from the sky...
And the earth died screaming

Come Home to Me / Steve Earle (Ellen and Jo)

The door's unlocked, the light is on
Baby, baby, baby, please come home to me

Teach Your Children / Crosby, Stills and Nash (Ellen and Jo)

And you, of the tender years can't know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your years, they seek the truth before they can die.
Teach your parents well, their children's hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams, the one they picked, the one you're known by.
Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

Flinty Kind of Women / Dar Williams (Ellen)

Got a flinty kind of woman
and you don't act smart and you don't touch my children
If the young man wants to see the sun go down

Landslide / Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks (Ellen)

Well I’ve been afraid of changing ‘cause I
Built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older, I’m getting older too

Working Class Gospel Drinking Blues / Roadhouse (Dean, Sam, Cas, Bobby, Ellen, Jo)

Hard times are coming,
They're already here,
Run out of Jack and I run out of beer...
Open the bottle, baby, gonna drink until I fall
.

Hittin' On Nothing / Southern Culture on the Skids (Jo and Dean)

You ain't a hittin' on nothing,
less you got something for me
(While Jo wouldn't want diamonds, she does want something more than a one night stand from Dean)

Desperado / Eagles (Dean)

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you, before it's too late

Last Night on Earth / Private Line (Bobby and Ellen)

And I need you
Do you know how it feels to be lonely?
Do you know how it feels to be the only?
This is the last, last night on earth

Hard Headed Woman/ Cat Stevens (Ellen and Bobby)

I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will make me do my best
And if I find my hard headed woman
I know the rest of my life will be blessed

 

A-Hunting We Will Go / Hem (Dean, Sam, Cas, Ellen, Jo)

Overland
Through the rye
Gun in hand
Bird in sky
Calling out to the world below
A-hunting we will go
Every field
Ripe and fine
Every man
A friend of mine
On the trails that we name or know
A-hunting we will go

Hero (Instrumental) / Federale (Dean, Sam, Cas, Ellen Jo as they hit the streets of Carthage)


Hell Hound On My Trail / Jimmy Wolf (Dean, Sam, Ellen, Jo)

There's a hellhound on my trail

Crow on the Cradle / Jackson Browne (Children of Hunters)

The crow on the cradle
The black and the white
Somebody`s baby is born for a fight
The crow on the cradle
The white and the black
Somebody`s baby is not coming back
Sang the crow on the cradle

O Death / Jen Titus (Ellen and Jo)

When God is gone and the Devil takes hold,
who will have mercy on your soul
Oh, Death, оh Death, oh Death,
No wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul
Oh, Death,
Well I am Death, none can excel,
I'll open the door to heaven or hell.
Oh, Death, оh Death,
my name is Death and the end ïs here...

You and I / Fightstar (Ellen and Jo)

You and I
Will never make it out of here
Alive

I Won't Back Down / Adele Morgan (Ellen)

Well, I won't back down, No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down
Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggi' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down.

Oh Very Young / Cat Stevens (Jo)

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time?...
Will you carry the words of love with you?
Will you ride the great white bird into heaven?

Who Will Take My Place / The Duhks (Ellen)

If they shoot me down to shut me down
Who will take my place?
If they bring an army into this town
Who will take my place?...
When the dogs of war are on the land
Who will take my place?
When you forfeit life to take a stand
Who will take my place?

Knockin' On Heaven's Door (Instrumental) / Vitamin String Quartet (Ellen and Jo)


I'm Not Afraid to Die / Gillian Welch (Ellen)

Forget my sins upon the wind
My hobo soul will rise
Lie-d Lie-d Lie
I'm not afraid to die
Lie-d Lie-d Lie
I'm not afraid to die

Burying Song (Instrumental) / Hem (Ellen, Jo and Tessa)
