Preacherman
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Ooh
Ooh

Preacher man, go tell me
Where his body lies
Sitting down by the river, now, child
Left him there to die

One by one we tumble
One by one we fall
If I had a solution, now, honey
I would fix us all

'Cause I believe in a world
Where we all belong
And I'm so tired of seein'
Every good man gone

Take me to that river
Lay me by his side
Let the water wash me clean, now, honey
Man, don't stole my pride

I have seen the darkness
Lord knows I've seen the light
Don't recall the Lord
Sayin' there's a difference
If you're black or white

'Cause I believe in a world
Where we all belong
And I'm so tired of seein'
Every good man gone

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

One by one we tumble
One by one we fall
If I had a solution, now, honey

'Cause I believe in a world

And I'm so tired of seein'
Every good man gone

Take me to that river
Lay me by his side
Let the water wash me clean, now, honey
Man, don't stole my pride

I have seen the darkness
Lord knows… Light & Love...

Sometimes you come across a song by chance...and you realize you were meant to hear it.

Ali Gökhan Dilek

Imagine this,
you had an accident, when you're riding your bicycle. In the accident you suffered serious head and spinal injuries. Then an attending physician who believed music would help your brain injury drastically improve, you began writing music after your accident...
And then give this gift for the world, a perfect song like this...
This is who Melody Gardot is...
I can't be sure what the feel about this, really. If I have to be mad to the driver of the SUV who caused your accident or be greatful to him to give you as a gift, like your songs to the whole world...
Thank you Melody, for perfection... Keep on!
'Cause I believe in a world, where we all belong...
Love from Turkey!

A tragedy and a tribulation are the same side of a one sided coin.

Just push the pause button enywhere in the video. You will see a masterpiece photography. And every case the pictures will show an another very strong emotion. Pride, hate, pity, sorry, contempt, symphaty..... etc.
Magnificent.

Even the poor old pittie in its cage, trained all his life to be aggressive towards everything... Startled like a curious, happy puppy by the first droplets of rain, but too tired and too beaten to feel much joy. Such strong symbolism captured in a couple of seconds. This is art, from the beginning to the end. The song has been one of my favorites for a long time but somehow didn't check the video until now. Luckily I did.
