Slaid Cleaves with Woody

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
