Spent all
My fortunes
Laughed away
More dollars and dimes
But I've seen the smile
Of a Cherokee Street girl
And I know
What it feels like to fly

No well water
To run dry
Too many graves
To be kept clean
I shook the hand
What each day delivers
Today's world
Is not my home

There's need for change
Not more prisons
Decisions made
With a blind eye
Just believe
A better day will rise
Until then this world
Is not my home

Spent all
My fortunes
Laughed away
More dollars and dimes
But I've seen the smile
Of a Cherokee Street girl
And I know
What it feels like to fly

I've heard this before and I love it, but it never works when I find it on PSD for some reason.  Just silence ...
Has a native american beat laying under a blues guitar.  Genius.

now THIS is what modern guitarslingers should be. Not another Stevie Ray,Joe Bonamassa "Blues Hammer" bunch of hacks. These dudes got the chops and the voice.
Kind of a Buddy Miller vibe going on there. Quite nice.

agreed !!!  
Scrunchy and superb.  The trouble is, I'm spending far too much time following things up now I listen to RP.  Looking into Cherokee Street on the interweb; history, culture, celebrations of independence, great learning.  Better than CAD anyday.
Love this groove

Jay lends his really distinctive voice well to this one, and the wall-of-sound guitar work is astounding, like Neil Young & Big Head Todd.
