(From Hermanus, South Africa)
Oh, joy begin.
… & WHATNOT
Last nite Stephen Colbert hosted DAVE MATTHEWS on his show. I have been a Dave Matthews groupie for quite awhile: my best friend gave me his 1st album when he was still playing gigs around Charlottesville in the early 1990s. Ahem (awhile, quite!) She stayed around for grad school (while I graduated uni a few years prior to his presence in C’ville.)
His music still gets me up & dancing, or introverted & thinking – like last nite.
The song Dave Matthews played with guitarist Tim Reynolds is about the joy of having a child. So appropriate for Mother’s Day (celebrated on Sunday here in America.) The lyrics also rock about joy & tolerance. Be blessed to give it a listen.
Could not figure out why the name of this song is Samurai Cop?
“Let’s not forget these early days
Remember we begin the same
We lose our way in fear & pain
Oh, joy begin…” (Dave Matthews)
grace, peace & JOY (the beginnings of)
Virginia : )
Oh joy begin…. perfect.
Thank you Bernadette – It’s always the challenge to LET it begin (when our quarrelsome selves get in joy’s way.) 🙂
Not so Samurai Cop-pish, is it? Nice excerpt to share. Thanks.
It’s a great song, Tim -I’ve been a Dave Matthews groupie for a long time! 🎺🎼😎
