A blues song that isn't based on a blues pattern. A song about finding redemption. Who couldn't some of that now and then?
A killer crew on this one: Steve Goodie in front of the Neve board at his studio: Liz Ficolora on the drums: Jake Hill, master of the keyboards, Don Larson, bassist extraordinaire, Maximilian Niederle, with a sax that sends this one to the heights
CARRY ME AWAY
By: AJ Bigler
Gotta let the blues come on in if you want to sing them out again
Go ahead and let it hurt when you’re felling down dirty and lonesome
Love to hear that guitar sing, and the drummer make that cymbal ring
I know the blues can’t take my life and then some
Love to let the music carry me away, take a trip into my soul see what it has to say
My baby may be gone and a new job will come along, right now I’m sipping this brew and feeling the beat.
An old Wilson Picket tune will heal just about any wound kinda like a kiss from mamma making any hurt feel sweet.
I’ll probably have to walk alone, everybody just wants to get stoned
And all I need is a little help for Eric Clapton
No matter how for down I go I will always know, I can still make my life happen
I believe in Jesus, I believe in his miracles, and one of them was the blues.
