Lyrics

Can This Black Man Sing The Blues

Written By: Jacquescoley

Can This Black Man Sing The Blues? ©
On my way to church one Sunday morning;
I ran into this old man.
Who declared today was “Blues Day.”
Who declared yesterday was “Blues Day.”

I asked him, in a vehement tone.
“Man, what you talking „bout?”
He responded, “You know;
“We‟ve‟ been singing the blues for a long time.”
“We‟ve been singing the blues for a long time.”
“I couldn‟t imagine life without these old-tyme hymns”.
“These old-tyme hymns make me feel alive.”

Life, well life;
Wouldn‟t be the same.
Life, well life;
Wouldn‟t be the same.
It‟s our heritage you see.
Our legacy.

From the cotton fields and the lily fields…and the African plains:
Can this black man sing blues?
To Jim Crow and Martin King;
From Martin King to the Katrina waves.

Can this black man sing the blues?
Can this black man sing the blues?
Can this black man sing the blues?

Temple at West Bank

Written By: Jacquescoley

Temple at West Bank

Oppressive nature of this desert,
Married with the combustion of fear,
Yields a cocktail for danger…
Very dangerous;
It’s dangerous.

Tears of a lonely child,
Penetrates a blood soaked land,
Papa’s got a suitcase on his back.
Papa, where did you get that suitcase?
Papa, where did you get that suitcase?
Tell me the truth.

I know a place where you can go.
Where your spirit will be free.
Don’t let the barb wire anchor your feet.
Don’t let the gun-fire rupture your soul.

Keep moving,
Keep running,
Heading in the right direction.

Keep moving,
Keep running,
Heading in the right direction

Keep moving,
Keep running,
Heading in the right direction

Temple at West Bank.
Temple at West Bank.
Temple at West Bank.

I hear you Santini.
Fire Wolf Come Home.
Fire wolf----
This is your time.
This is your day.
Drive these spirits away.
Don't fail me now.
Fire wolf come home.
Fire wolf...fire wolf...fire wolf.
I hear you Wagner.
I hear you Santini.
In a lovely place…called Valhalla.
In a lovely place…called Valhalla.
Where the Vikings roam…
Where the Vikings roam…
This is your time.
This is your day.
Don’t fail me now.
Drive these spirits away.

In a lovely place…called Valhalla.

This is your day.
Don’t fail me now.
Drive these spirits away.
Fire wolf come home.
This is your day.
Fire wolf come home.
It’s about the sunrise.
