Alison Krauss & Union Station – Gravity

Iemand die hier zeker niet mag ontbreken is Alison Krauss (Decatur, Illinois) met haar begeleidingsband Union Station. Deze dame die schijnbaar moeiteloos de mooiste vocalen voortbrengt heb ik ontdekt via de film Oh Brother Where Art Thou waarin Alison indruk maakte met het wonderschone Down To The River To Pray. Het nummer dat je hier kan horen getiteld Gravity, komt van het album Lonely Runs Both Ways.

Songtekst:

I left home when I was seventeen
I just grew tired of falling down
And I’m sure I was told
The allure of the road
Would be all I found

And all the answers that I started with
Turned out questions in the end
So years roll on by
And just like the sky
The road never ends

(Chorus:)
And the people who love me still ask me
When are you coming back to town
And I answer quite frankly
When they stop building roads
And all God needs is gravity to hold me down

(Chorus:)
And the people who love me still ask me
When are you coming back to town
And I answer quite frankly
When they stop building roads
And there ain’t no more highways to be found
And I answer quite frankly
When they stop building roads
And all God needs is gravity to hold me down
