Soul Street

Story Behind The Song

One more day of listening to old records led me to a few chord changes which sort of set up a feel that suggested a word or two that had me singing along... so I recorded it all in one day. Then I woke up and did it again with another song.

It was sixty-eight and I was listening to my transistor radio
The local DJ was playing those records / he called that music soul
West Grand Boulevard / Jackson Highway / McLemore Avenue
If you ever see me lost and bewildered
All you've got to do / all you got to do is

Take me home to Soul Street / I wanna go back / I wanna go back
Take Me home to Soul Street / I wanna go back /I wanna go back
Take me home

It was a fascination from the beginning / I learned every song by heart
I had to listen over and over / 'til I knew each and every part
Morning / noon and night it held me prisoner
To tell the truth I wouldn't change a thing
I've never had a sweeter companion
If you ever see me falling / don't you know my heart is calling
