EARLY SONGS HOLD A TORCH UP IN THE SHADOWS OF FAME GOSPEL BRIDGE DA WRAG SILLY-SLY SONGS


From HERE
to
JUBILEE


Keep it Steady

Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready, yes
Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready, so
Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready

This time, I'm ready
This time, I'm steady, as we go
There's no need for an S.O.S.
The ship's on a course
As true as the stars do whirl
Around this planet's pole

I'm no longer hurtin'
I'm no longer flirtin', and I know
Why I was in so much distress
From a rumor without source
An innocent boy or girl
Can tell you what's in my soul

What were we doin'?
Why were we cooin', like some dove
Sent to signal an age of peace
Only to become a generation of hawks
Like none we've seen before?

Hey! Were we just fakin'?
Say! Were we just takin', like some love
Requiring we buy, or sell, or lease
Which has come to benumb our souls
For a beast that stalks
Every house with a locked door?

Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready, yes
Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready, so
Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready

This love I'm feelin'
Is beyond dealin', out of hand
No taxation could make me king
Unless we all fed
Each of those who go without
In this world of plenty

Yes, there's nothing to do now
Except tell you through-out the land
"Any nation that doesn't ring
Freedom's glory bell is dead
To the days ahead
About to turn one hundred times twenty"
"Any nation that doesn't ring
Freedom's glory bell is dead
NOW, SO FULL OF DREAD
AS THESE DAYS
have turned turn one hundred times twenty"

Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready, yes
Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready, so
Keep it steady, now, you know I'm ready, won't you
Keep it steady, now, don't you know? I'm ready
Keep it steady, now, don't you know? We're ready
Don't you know? We're ready!
Don't you know? We're ready!
