VERSE
Eb    Ab     Eb  Bb   Eb  Ab    Eb    Bb
  Jo-oseph's face was  black as night
        Eb   Ab     Eb   Bb          | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
And the pale yellow moon shone in his eyes
    Eb   Ab  Eb     Bb     Eb           Ab            Eb     Bb
His path was marked by the stars in the southern hemisphere
       Eb     Ab  Eb         Bb      | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
And he walked his days under African skies


CHORUS
Eb           Ab       Eb       Bb     | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 This is the story of how we begin to remember
Eb           Ab       Eb         Bb        | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 This is the powerful pulsing of love in the vein
Eb         Ab       Eb          Bb          | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 After the dream of falling and calling your name out
Eb             Ab                      Eb       Bb     | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 These are the roots of rhythm and the roots of rhythm remain


INTERLUDE

VERSE
   Eb Ab Eb  Bb
In early memory
Eb  Ab   Eb  Bb
 Mission mu--sic
    Eb Ab    Eb       Bb     | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
Was ringing 'round my nursery door
       Eb   Ab   Eb     Bb
I said take this child, Lord
     Eb      Ab Eb   Bb
From Tucson, Arizona
             Eb       Ab          Eb    
Give her the wings to fly through harmony
    Bb        Eb            Ab   Eb   Bb
And she won't bother you no more


CHORUS
Eb           Ab       Eb       Bb     | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 This is the story of how we begin to remember
Eb           Ab       Eb         Bb        | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 This is the powerful pulsing of love in the vein
Eb         Ab       Eb          Bb          | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 After the dream of falling and calling your name out
Eb             Ab                      Eb       Bb     | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
 These are the roots of rhythm and the roots of rhythm remain

       Eb         Ab            Eb         Bb     | Eb Ab | Eb Bb |
And he walked the length of his days under African skies
