Balanced on the Rail 2018

Funded by Jill's Fans, "Balanced on the Rail" is the combination of Cohn's early career and her most current recordings.  She once again called on the talents of Grammy Award Winning Producer, Malcolm Burn who has produced Bob Dylan and Emmylou Harris as well as Jill's "Yellow Rose" and her "Heartstrings Touching Ground".  Those two releases were recorded in Kingston NY at Malcolm's studio, so they decided to go back to Jill's roots in Seattle to record with her bandmates Shane Trout and Greg Fulton who both had worked with Jill since 1998. Seattle Engineer Producer Stephen Sherrard joined the project and the album was recorded in just 5 days.

Lyrics

FAR AWAY

Out there is a sea of wheat

Sunflower fields as far as I can see                                                                               

And Gentlemen who’ll open doors for me

I can be all I can be

Someone might finally notice me as the gentle wind blowing from town to

town

Take me far away where my problems don’t exist

Take me far away

Far away

I’ll do anything to give my soul a place to rest

Just take me far away

take me far away, far away

They say if I try to leave

My problems will just follow me

But I got a road map only I could know

I will follow it off the grid

Finally, I will get rid of all the things on my face you say it always shows

Take me far away where my problems don’t exist

Take me far away

Far away

I’ll do anything to give my soul a place to rest

Just take me far away

take me far away, far away

Maybe our life would be better 

With the sunset in my rearview mirror
