Tombigbee
From Scarlet's Hidden Treasures, Released May 2004
to you it’s another day / to me it’s a grim reaping
just another shooting star / strung out on your wire

prick my finger on his virgin silver
he told me raw, ginger - it caramelized me

tombigbee, tombigbee / help me hang these bones, gotta hang these bones out to dry
he loved me, he loved me / ravishingly low / gonna hang these bones out to dry
dry dry dry

got a blackberry stain / and they’re not even in season
if you’re not yet a woman / you got no business playin’ at this

tombigbee, Tombigbee / help me hang these bones / gotta hang these bones out to dry
he loved me, he loved me / ravishingly low / gotta hang these bones out to dry
dry dry dry

so you get done / then you get some / sure ‘nough it won’t hold you for long
then you say “right. this is all mine.”

but hasn’t your donor card expired -

from blueridge to cattail / on the prairie
from flyover country / back through Mississippi
i said go man / you go
well you raise me 20 / i’m raisin’ you five hundred treaties

i said go man / you go
cause i’m trailin’ her tears / the ones you won’t hold
you roll me a carpet / roll me a carpet boy
roll me a carpet / from here to oklahoma

tombigbee, tombigbee / help me hang this bone, gotta hang these bone out to dry
he loved me, he loved me / ravishingly low / gonna hang these bones
out to dry / dry, dry, dry

i’ll do it again dry / dry, dry, dry

500 Miles
From Abnormally Attracted to Sin, Released May 2009
he walked 300 miles just to bring me bread
his body like a sculpture / almost decorated
and i’ll wake him as the dawn does / and we’ll break it on the bus
saying, “this was made for us, love”

in lovers communion for 500 miles
and in 500 miles will he break / break me again?
in lovers communion for 500 miles
and in 500 miles will we brake / even break

step it up / grab your phone / get your suitcase
there is no time to waste / a big adventure awaits
sad news, france suffered a late snow / the blooms break through the ice

in san francisco / a guitar man finally confessed
he left that actress over the lakes with hearts touched by frost
we fought in the land of the midnight sun / i lost myself

i walk 300 miles just to bring / to bring him bread
in love some gifts are simple / others i underrated
so i’ll wake him as the dawn does / and we’ll face what any lovers must
blueness pales within a flames lust

in lovers communion for 500 miles
and in 500 miles will he break / break me again?
in lovers communion for 500 miles
and in 500 miles will he brake / even break
will we brake / even break
don’t slow down / we might not even break

So were these just some random polls or will this be continued?

Yes, shame if it won't continue.

So I've just read the 500 Miles lyrics in full again, and I'm actually not appalled by them. They are kinda sweet. Definitely better than NDT. I think the production ruins them completely. With a sparser piano backing, like she did it live, it could at least be on a 1000 Oceans level, which is still cheesy, but decent. But the geetar ruined everything.
