about

Inspired by the poem, "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking" by Walt Whitman (1819-1892). I styled it to have an Americana, Southern Roots feel, the way most of my songs start.

lyrics

the sea says my name as I see you tonight
and while we are living some are merely alive
in every man’s eye out on every dark shore
I can see my reflection passing through every door

make me a rich man or a beggar come knocking
I'm out of the cradle endlessly rocking

I sing it will pleasure and I treasure each note
as my spirit floats up from my heart to my throat
My religion is life, my salvation is love
all my gifts have come to me from some dog above

bring me to where Satan and Jesus are talking
I'm out of the cradle endlessly rocking

I write with the body what my soul will tell
from the pleasures of heaven to the dark pains of hell
if Whitman is listening for I know he’s around
under albion moonlight inspiring this sound

so find me a maiden in a silken black stocking
I'm out of the cradle endlessly rocking
and touch me with wisdom or fool-hearty mocking
I'm out of the cradle endlessly rocking
