Northern heart, Southern soul

I was feeling like a pilgrim on my way to the holy land,

I was feeling like a pilgrim on my way to the holy land,

A journey to the past, the place where it all began..

 

Landed down in Memphis , took my first steps on sacred ground,

Landed down in Memphis , took my first steps on sacred ground,

My spirit ran high, this blues singerís homeward bound..

 

Iím just a northern heart with a southern soul,

born a hundred years too late in the land of snow.

But now Iím standing in the delta, had many miles to go,

and I finally feel at home, feel at home..

Found myself at a crossroads, guitar in my hands,

Found myself at a crossroads, guitar in my hands, 

Well, the dark came creepiní as I was waitiní for the man..

 

Iíve heard so many legends told, from the days of old..  

To learn them blues, you gotta sell your soul..

An easy way to be the best around..

Seal the deal and soon youíre goiní down..

 

Iím just a northern heart with a southern soul,

born a hundred years too late in the land of snow.

But now Iím standing in the delta, had many miles to go,

and I finally feel at home, feel at home..

 

People, singiní the blues surely mean the world to me,

Been around the world but thereís one place Iíd rather be,

Iíll be back some day, Iím missiní Mississippi .

 

Iím just a northern heart with a southern soul,

born a hundred years too late in the land of snow.

But now Iím standing in the delta, had many miles to go,

and I finally feel at home, feel at home..

 

"..This song is about my "pilgrimage"to the Mississippi Delta! To finally be there and mentally and musically coming home. Grand, incredibly wonderful are the first words that I find when I'm going to describe feelings around this trip to the home of the blues! I did a small tour in the Mississippi Delta with gigs in Mississippi , Tennesee and Arkansas . Among other things, I was invited to play on Arkansas Blues & Heritage Fest in Helena - The King Biscuit Blues Festival!!! Playing at "The Biscuit" was one of the highlights so far in my career!.. Northern heart, Southern soul is also a very good description of me as a person, haha.."
