wednesday wallop #28 > wake up

No Gravatar

welcome back my friends – and I hope you have your seatbelts on for this weeks wallop. We have southern fried, chicken scratching, drum thwacking, bubbly synthesizer throbbing, chorus hootin, wah cranking song called “wake up”…I was reading in Ephesians 5:14 where Paul quotes an old spiritual (apparently); wake up oh sleeper and rise from the dead and Christ will shine on you…and…well that was the germ for this song. I might have gotten carried away with the drums – especially the end solo bit – but hey – it was fun. Hmmmm…now that I think about it, I may have gotten carried away with the guitar feedback too – but that is the joy of this project – no time for worries now – gotta publish! Hope it puts the smile of hope and joy on your face in this hot season.

wake up

when fortune smiles I smile to think
how quickly she will frown
it won’t matter how high we climb
we’ll always be coming down

there comes a time and a place and a day
when you realize it is true
wake up oh sinner and rise from the dead
and Christ will shine on you

ahhhhhhh

well I’ve been north and south and east and west
and it’s the same
I see folks trying to make their own peace
picking at their shame

and so my friends it’s a simple thing
I’ll tell you what to do
wake up oh sleeper and rise from the dead
and Christ will shine on you

ahhhhhhh (out)
