The freshman CD of Raggedy Edge, this is the one that is most indicative of their sound as a duo, featuring guitar and mandolin, with a few overdubs, of course, because it is a recording after all. Musical diversity is the name of the game for most Raggedy Edge CDs, and with everything from bluegrass (Bermuda Triangle Breakdown, featuring Pat Carine Sr on banjo) to the jazzy stylings of Facebook Status and Moments in the Morning, this one set the standard for all to follow. Story songs with plenty of upbeat cheer, love songs that shine with hopefulness, fun blues rockers, and a sensitive south of the border salsa to bring it home make sure that you are not mired in a sea of anonymity.

A bluegrass song that got started way back in the 1970s, then was forgotten through the 80s and 90s, but came back to the forefront in the 21st century. The story had been cut short, but thanks to Lynn's prodding, a suitably complete, yet mysterious ending came into being.
Bermuda Triangle Breakdown
It was on the first of May, yes it was such a fine day [E D]
That I set sail from Miami, FLA [E D E]
My sweet Jenny she went, too, thought it a good thing to do [E D]
To sail with me and my Irish setter Blue [E D E]
We were barely under way when the ocean turned to gray
And I knew this wasn't gonna be one of my better days
When the daytime lost its light we knew something wasn't right
As we sailed upon a terrifying sight
Bigger than a football field, circling round like nothing real
With lightning strikes and thunder clapping peals
Waves crashed on the deck, Jenny wrapped her arms around my neck
When said and done, the best I could expect.
Sailing the Atlantic when the wind began to roar [A E]
Sun turned black, the sea and sky were gray [G D]
Compass pointed up, I's going down, but I don't know [F C]
Might have been that I had lost my way-ay[E D A]
Up turned left, down turned right, and my hair stood up in fright
My Irish setter Blue turned pearly white
And it didn't take me long to see something else was wrong
My sweet Jenny was there then she was gone
Now I sail the ocean blue, 'cause there's nothing left to do
But find the door my Jenny disappeared through
One night homeward bound, ran my ship on a beach I found
Near a cemetery's sacred hallowed ground
I found my Jenny there, hair of gold and skin so fair
Sobbing loudly, sitting on the ground still bare
As I approached the stone, I grew chilled to the bone
The name engraved on the marker was my own
