Lyrics

Skippin' Stone

Written By: John Whitehead

You’re the reason why
And the honest truth
My boon companion
And my main excuse

You’re my pair of aces
And my short cut home
I’ll be your alibi
‘cuz you’re my skippin’ stone

You’re the ground I walk on
And where I’ll make my stand
I can take the punches
‘cuz you’re my corner man

You’re my pair of aces
And my short cut home
I’ll be your alibi
‘cuz you’re my skippin’ stone

You’re my flesh and blood
And my walking staff
My best defense
And my better half

You’re my own true north
And my daily bread
My drivin' wheel
The song in my head

You’re my pair of aces
And my short cut home
I’ll be your alibi
‘cuz you’re my skippin stone

I'm Pluggin' In

Written By: John Whitehead

I’m pluggin' in
To the power of the one above
I’m pluggin’ in
To the promise of eternal love
Gonna get a little juiced,
I need a good revival boost
I’ll be walkin in glory on judgement day, Hallelulia I’m pluggin’ in

The world can make you sad
Sometimes you feel uninspired
And the weight of obligation
Can make a soul feel tired

I need a hard-wired connection
Grounded in the holy flame
Gonna feel a little surge
From the gospel words
And the generator of his name

I’m pluggin' in
To the power of the one above
I’m pluggin’ in
To the promise of eternal love
Gonna get a little a juiced
I need a good revival boost
I’ll be walkin in glory on judgement day, Hallelulia I’m pluggin’ in

When I find my spirit flagging
And I’m losing all of my speed
I take a look inside my soul
To find a little of what I need

Then I hook up to the current
Turn the amplifier up to ten
Then I get a little jolt from the holy ghost, and I’m back on my feet again

I’m pluggin' in
To the power of the one above
I’m pluggin' in
To the promise of eternal love
Gonna get a little a juiced
I need a good revival boost
I’ll be walkin in glory on judgement day, Hallelulia I’m pluggin' in
I’ll be walkin in glory on judgement day, Hallelulia I’m pluggin’ in


Lovin' Cup

Written By: John Whitehead

I need more love, more attention
A few more longing looks from your direction
Let’s mix it down and stir it up
Its time we filled our loving cup

I need more kissin, more affection
Let’s pop the cork and pour the bliss in
Let’s mix it down and stir it up
Its time we filled our loving cup

Don’t need booze to lift my spirits up
‘cuz I’m already flyin’
There’s just one drink that I’m thirsty for
And that’s one that you’ll be buyin’

I need more love, more attention
A few more longing looks from your direction
Let’s mix it down and stir it up
Its time we filled our loving cup

Coffee black just sets my nerves on edge
And I can’t hardly think
So hold the coke and give the beer away
I’m cravin’ just one drink

Turn the tap until its flowin’
Wash away these salty tears
Like after rain the flowers growin’
And then a rainbow appears

I need more love, more attention
A few more longing looks from your direction
Let’s mix it down and stir it up
Its time we filled our loving cup

I need more kissin’, more affection
Let’s pop the cork and, baby, pour the bliss in
Let’s mix it down and stir it up
Its time we filled our loving cup
Its time we filled our loving cup
