THIS is my favorite song. Brooks sent it to me, and the first time I heard it I bawled like a baby.
Joe's my friend on FB. I am laughing at myself.
oh my goodness! joe's in cville soon.
do we have any single monkees? single monkees where are you?
one of us must marry joe pug.
Love it! Thank you for posting it Glennon. He is in Chapel Hill this weekend and doggone it – I will be at a wedding in Greensboro. Bummer. I love his voice and will be watching out for him to circle back through.
He's in Charlottesville soon. poetry.
I love this song. Love it. It's a Jesus song. Absolutely.
Guess those music lessons paid off…
When I close my eyes I see Joe Pug performing this song, by a campfire of course, to a group of adoring Monkees…..who's with me?! : ) Musicians and songwriters of this caliber are absolute masters of their craft. So jealous. Love this, G.
hmmm…maybe "timbre of my heart" instead of "timber of my heart"
timbre – (music) the distinctive property of a complex sound (a voice or noise or musical sound); "the timbre of her soprano was rich and lovely
rachel = genius.
i've come to reach out blind, reach forward and behind…
One of many reasons why Joe Pug is so cool:
Get yourself some free CDs…from the man himself.
bums yes yes yes please!!!!!!
g – you must see this man live (preferably in a small room). my roomie steph told me that he was her boyfriend. so, we went to see him. we've been several times now and i'm starting to wonder if that's true. either way, he's the bee's knees. i got your ticket next time. xoxo, bums
offer him the broad side of my jaw…turn the other cheek…
It is about Him.
I think it is my new favorite,too. When I have time, going to forward to everyone and listen to is several times in a row..
I LOVE when I get to hear new beautiful music. Thank you, friend. Thank you, Brooks!
thanks for posting the lyrics.listening made me feel weepy…just re-affirming the fact that music speaks to my soul even when my brain isn't engagedlove it
Left brainer here…and I never would have thought it was about Jesus until I read your post. Seriously. NEVER. I listened to the words while I watched the video & thought it was about all the reasons people go into bars to get drunk (ie, everyone has their different story).
And I’ve come to meet the sheriff and his posseTo offer him the broadside of my jaw…ceaser, pontius pilate
And I’ve come to meet the legendary takersI’ve only come to ask them for a lot…rich young ruler, matthew the tax collector
And I’ve come to know the manger that you sleep inI’ve come to be the stranger that you keep…
Lyrics to Hymn #101 :
Yea I’ve come to know the wish list of my fatherI’ve come to know the shipwrecks where he wishedI’ve come to wish aloud among the over dressed crowdCome to witness now the sinking of the shipThrowing pennies from the sea top next to it
And I’ve come to roam the forest past the villageWith a dozen lazy horses in my cartI’ve come here to get high,To do more than just get by.I’ve come to test the timber of my heartOh, I’ve come to test the timber of my heart
And I’ve come to be untroubled in my seekingAnd I’ve come to see that nothing is for naughtI’ve come to reach out blindto reach forward and behindFor the more I seek the more I’m soughtYea, the more I seek the more I’m sought.
And I’ve come to meet the sheriff and his posseTo offer him the broadside of my jawI’ve come here to get brokeThen maybe bum a smokeWe’ll go drinking two towns over after allOh, we’ll go drinking two towns over after all.
And I’ve come to meet the legendary takersI’ve only come to ask them for a lotOh they say I come with lessthan I should rightfully possesI say the more I buy the more I’m boughtAnd the more I’m bought the less I cost
And I’ve come to take their servants and their surplusAnd I’ve come to take their raincoats and their speedI’ve come to get my fillTo ransack and spillI’ve come to take the harvest for the seedI’ve come to take the harvest for the seed
And I’ve come to know the manger that you sleep inI’ve come to be the stranger that you keepI’ve come from down the roadAnd my footsteps never slowedBefore we met, I knew we’d meetBefore we met, I knew we’d meet
And I’ve come here to ignore your cries and heartachesI’ve come to closely listen to you singI’ve come here to insistThat I leave here with a kissI‘ve come to say exactly what I meanand I mean so many things.
And you’ve come to know me stubborn as a butcherand you’ve come to know me thankless as a guestwill you recognize my face when gods awful gracestrips me of my jacket and my vestand reveals all the treasure in my chest
Brooksie – I'm familiar with the Barnum effect…but I think this one really is about Jesus.
a dozen lazy horses….disciples
leave here with a kiss…judas
came here to get broke….cross
and on and on and on….
Now I'm sitting here thinking about all the songs that DEFINITELY aren't about Jesus that prove Dave's theory wrong. Example: My Humps. Definitely NOT about Jesus.
I never thought of that song as being about Jesus. And I just asked my husband if he thinks it's about Jesus he said "Every song is about Jesus, you hippie!" and when I asked him to explain, he said that's what's so wonderful about the Jesus story – that there's something for everyone in it and that you can see him in any song if you want to. Then he said something about the Barnum Effect and now I have to go Google that. Damn psychology majors.
But I'm delighted you like the mixes I sent, and that this song spoke to you.
Listen to it again and imagine Jesus singing it.It's about him.
Left brainer here. Not sure though what I think (or feel). I do love his voice and I like the sound.
These lyrics stuck out at me though:
For the more I seekthe more I'm sought
The more I buythe more I'm boughtAnd the more I'm boughtthe less I cost.
I like the sound but I found myself walking away, not because I didn't like what he was saying but because I'm THAT ADD and it just didn't hold my attention.
He's a cutie too. I'll try again tonight, maybe I'll be a little more focused.
