TUNE Asher Quinn - People Get Ready
My version of Curtis Mayfield's classic spiritual anthem, covered by just about everybody! Alicia Keys, Seal, John Denver, Rod Stewart et al! It's from my new album O Great Spirit, and I've extended the song by adding a one-world mantra to mix with the original lyrics. Curtis originally wrote that there's no room for the hopeless sinner on the train bound for glory, but I've given sinners tickets to ride because I'm undoubtedly one myself. I'm not the Messiah, I'm a very naughty boy. 2012 heralds the dawning of the age of compassion.
