Powerful Stuff from Buddy Guy and Van Morrison

Archives

Sometimes, God’s Word doesn’t come from where you expect it it. In this case, it comes in a blues song from Buddy Guy’s latest album “Born to Play Guitar.” Dedicated to B.B. King, “Flesh and Bone” is a powerful song about faith, family, and God.  This song immediately brought tears to my eyes; I’ll let the song and the lyrics speak for themselves.



Daddy read the good book
Through and through
Said the lord’s work
Is the only truth
It ain’t over the day you die
You’ll live on
In the sweet bye and bye

This life is more than
Flesh and bone
Turn back now before you’re gone
When you go your spirit lives on
This life is more than
Flesh and bone

Now I know my daddy was right
I read that good book
And I’ve seen the light
Mama and daddy have passed and gone
They’re still with me cause
Love lives on

This life is more than
Flesh and bone
Turn back now before you’re gone
When you go your spirit lives on
This life is more than
Flesh and bone

The God I feed on
Is real as rain
More than words can ever explain
We’ll meet again some sweet day
Find me on this world we play

This life is more than
Flesh and bone
Turn back now before you’re gone
When you go your spirit goes on
This life is more than
Flesh and bone
