Slaid Cleaves with Woody

Posted in Uncategorized on May 9, 2013 by anuvuestudio

Take the lyrics of Woody Guthrie, combine the instrumentals and haunting voice of of Slaid Cleaves…and you have magic.

this morning i was born again
and the light shines on my land
i no longer look for heaven
in your deathly distant land
i do not want your pearly gates
i don’t want your streets of gold
this morning i was born again
and the light shines in my soul

this morning i was born again
i was born again complete
i stood above my troubles
and i stand on my two feet

my hand feels unlimted
my body feels like a sky
i feel at home in the universe
where yonder planets fly

this morning i was born again
my past is dead and gone
this brave eternal moment
is my great eternal dawn

these troubled blood within me
each breath of life i breath
is united with these mountains
and the mountains with the sea

i feel the sun upon me
it’s ray’s crawl through my skin
i pray the life of Jesus
and old John Henry
i give myself my heart my soul
to give some friend a hand
this morning i was born again
i am in the promise land

this morning i was born again
and the light shines on my land
i no longer look for heaven
in your deftly distant land
i do not want your pearly gates
i don’t want your streets of gold
and i do not want your mansion for
my heart is never cold
