Lyrics
Sound of something woke me this morning, just before the dawn
Poured myself a cup of coffee and put my old blue jeans on
Sounded like an old bluegrass band, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs
And there sat my old guitar, a 1960’s Gibson Dove.

In this room we always played, I’d love to live days again
On and on every Saturday night, seemed like it would never end

How’d we get from there to here, how did we stay alive?
Keeping all our love around or keeping it inside?
How’d we find the words to say, how did we ever know
That a moment could last forever or it could just up and go.

April it came without warning in the spring of ‘69
Blue-eyed boy, a bundle of joy gonna carry the family line
Won’t be headed off to war, the college plans fell through
Six days on an assembly line seemed like the honest thing to do.

How’d we get from there to here, how did we stay alive?
Keeping all our love around or keeping it inside?
How’d we find the words to say, how did we ever know
That a moment could last forever or it could just up and go.

How about the time I met your mom, took her months for her to go
Still the same all our love remains, it’s her you favor most
Been 40 years since my daddy died, seems like he still ain’t gone
Smell a pipe and a Zippo lighter it’s like he’s right here at home

Mama said he’s the only one, somehow she always knew
Heart of gold and an immeasurable soul still had to leave him a time or two.

Now these hands that paved my way have betrayed me over time
Parkinson’s the name they gave it, can’t even hold a fishing line
Think I’ll head down to the café diner find a jukebox and play a tune
Love to hear the sound of Flatt and Scruggs playing “Good Ol’ Mountain Dew”

How’d we get from there to here, how did we stay alive?
Keeping all our love around or keeping it inside?
How’d we find the words to say, how did we ever know
That a moment could last forever or it could just up and go.

From Trevor Hall’s 2009 self-titled album. A beautiful song about the shared love of the Devine no matter what your personal spiritual beliefs may be. There’s a version of this song on the album that features a collaboration with Matisyahu that is definitely worth checking out.

Our super-talented friend Lisa Stovall joins us on this tune from Atlanta, GA’s The Indigo Girls. I think Amy Ray and Emily Saliers might be two of the most thoughtful and insightful writers of our time, and they are wonderful musicians as well. Perfect World from their 2004 album All That We Let In.

Harmony Hall by Vampire Weekend from their 2019 album, Father Of The Bride. I always thought they were a fascinating band and this song is especially great. We had some help from the amazing Clay Willis on guitar, guest vocalists Alaina Gunter and Christa Russell and special guest cameos from my friends Charles Gaby and Katsuk. Special thanks to Greg Luce for helping me shoot this video!
