Memphis: A New Musical Soundtrack Lyrics

David Bryan - The Music Of My Soul Lyrics
HUEY:
When I was a young boy,
My daddy sat me down.
He said son don't ever go

to the dark side of town.
I'm talking downtown Memphis
Ya see that's where the black folk play
And I said Yes sir daddy.
And then I snuck down anyway.

He never was taught to read none
No never taught to write
The only thing my daddy taught
was white should stay with white.

But I heard it through the alleys
It floated on the breeze yeah
And burst out through the doorways
And it knocked me to my knees.

It broke down all me senses
It made me feel so whole
See I was lost until I found
The music of my soul (x2)

Then one day my daddy died
And we laid him in his grave
And my mama she cried and cried
And prayed that he'd be saved

But all I felt was pity
For he never understood,
How could people be so bad
That made me feel so good?

It went right through my body
It grabbed me by my heart

FELICIA:
It shot out from my fingertips
And tore me right apart

FELICIA & HUEY:
It broke down all my senses
Yet made me feel so whole
And I will love till the day I die

COMPANY:
The music of my soul
It broke down all my senses
Yet made me feel so whole
See I was lost until I found
I was deaf till I heard

HUEY:
I'll make this world come around to

COMPANY:
The music of my soul!(x2)
