Sweet Honey in the Rock – They Are Falling All Around Me

From the 1978 Redwood Records Release,  Bernice Reagon Johnson penned this lament. Listen for Ysaye Barnwell’s  guttural bass exchanging time with foot stomps.

It is your path I walk image

It is your song that I sing

It is your load, I take on

It is your air that I breathe

It’s the record that you said

that makes me go on

It’s your strength that helps me stand
