A quietly happy little song that escaped my notice the first time I heard it.  Now it’s one of my favorites.

Full lyrics HERE.



For some reason, the line that resonates with me is not, “My soul’s been psychedelicized” (even though that seems to be the favorite of the performers).   It’s “I have no home.”  It doesn’t seem especially tragic in this context, although it does give me pause.

This song is on one of Steve Earle’s albums, but lacks the energy this live performance has.

If you only have room for one Joe Cocker album, Organic is the one to get.  Most of his hits are here, along with a few new ones, but with a stripped-down background that really emphasizes the vocals.

Darling Be Home Soon is my favorite of his romantic songs.
