Brown Earth Lyrics - Laura Nyro

Review The Song (1)



Morning, come to the windows of the street, selling red watermelon, five cents a piece.
Merry boat on the river, freedom. Fresh dreams to deliver, freedom.
Over and over and over, I call out your name.

God standing on the brown earth. ‘Get up,’ Mama hollers.
Shooflies in the doorway, white dove’s gonna come today, white dove’s gonna come today.
Oh, what a morning, I feel so good. Oh, what a morning of brotherhood.

Hold me by the light. Kittens run the neighborhood through. Ragamuffin boys.
All the world is new by the light of day.
Give with your heart and love will come to you.
Kids come in all shapes and colors to the cool morning dew.

Merry boat on the river, freedom. Fresh dreams to deliver, freedom.
Over and over and over and over and over and over.
God standing on the brown earth. Lovelight in the morning.
Shooflies in the doorway, white dove’s gonna come today, white dove’s gonna come today…

Amazing opening to a wonderful album | Reviewer: taite | 8/22/2006

At a time when the aim of so much rock music was to make it louder and louder, often to the point of being utterly bombastic, Laura Nyro's often overlooked "Christmas and the Beads of Sweat" stands as a wonderful counterpoint. The whole aim of this album seems to be to produce deep emotion whilst achieving extremely soft textures, and "Brown Earth" achieve this in a manner that has always set a standard difficult to achievie in an age of ear-spitting amplification.

The song's peace-and-love lyrical theme, moreover, is utterly heartfelt and Laura's vocal delivery never falls flat for a moment from the beautiful opening depiction of a quiet rural marketplace. Even when she almost whispers, there is a ball of energy present, and theelectric guitar, bass and drums fit her mood very well. In contrast, Stu Sharif's dreamy acoustic guitar anticipates Robin Guthrie by almost fifteen years.
