"Strays" as written by and Daniel R. Messe....
In the summer of my wedding
As the corn burned in the field
Oh, I lay down for my baby
And let the sweet smoke stain my heels

Well, I lay there till the midnight
When the dogs, they run through town
And I rose up just to listen
And I never lay back down

Then the morning, it came upon me
And I set my soul to search
From the tall grass down the main road
To the stained glass at the church

Lord my shepard help me pray
Though I left my heart to stray
Though I left my heart untrue
I can follow, I do, I do

And I can name them in my dreaming
I can set my soul to rest
I can chain them to my body
Let them settle at my breast

Now see them coming to my wedding
Where I will teach them not to stray
Oh, they'll carry my salvation
Oh, they'll carry me away
