Hmmmmm...
Rolling down the road
Going nowhere
Guitar packed in the trunk
Somewhere 'round mile marker 112
Papa started hummin' the funk
I gotta jones in my bones and before we know,
We were singing this melody
Stopped the car, pulled out the guitar
Halfway to New Orleans

Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Take me ho-whoa-oh-ome

Could feel the sun about to rise
When I realized we had nothing to fear
It's just me and my daddy and a kid named Cope
Makin music that nobody would hear
And then the sun let up and it spent the night
Spillin' over our jubilee
10, 000 cars by the side of the road
Groovin' far as the eye can see

Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome

Said this greyhound is delta bound mama
Baby boy done finally found
Said this greyhound is delta bound mama
Baby boy done finally found his way ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome

Here we go...

Hot damn you should've felt the groove
Like I was swimmin' in a sea of soul
The sun was risin' and the day was hot
And we all about to lose control
My daddy turned his face up towards the sky
And I knew that there was nothin' to lose
I felt the crowd breathe in and I closed my eyes
And we disappeared into the groove

Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome

Straight from the water
Straight from the water children

Straight from the water
Straight from the water children

Straight from the water
Straight from the water children

Straight from the water
Straight from the water children

You don't know nothin' about this!
Take me home, home, home, home
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Take me ho-whoa-oh-ome
Said take me ho-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-whoa-ooh-oh-ome

    This is the kind of song that just happens when a man has one of those rare occasional moments in life when God, for the moment, has us opened in a diect line from our soul to His shining grace. Then the troubadour doesn't take the milliseconds most of us singers take with songs to think the words and let them role from our lips. We don't even feel the tiny familiar scratchiness of the strings as we unconsciously find the accompanying chords. It's simply a rare moment of purity when we are the music and it flows from our soul to God with no interruption. Like the moment the preacher lifts us from the water down by the riverside to a purity we've never known before, the music just is. And it's not just heard by folks to be enjoyed. The words and sounds become a stringtie singer testifying. Those within the sound of the music for those brief moments know what I'm saying.

    Dan.
