MY FATHER’S HOUSE : BEN HARPER (BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN)

25 Aug

Please see this most beautiful and soulful rendition of ” My Father’s House” ( Bruce Springsteen) by Ben Harper. This is from Kennedy center honor for Bruce Springsteen.

MY FATHER’S HOUSE:

Last night I dreamed that I was a child out where the pines grow wild and tall
I was trying to make it home through the forest before the darkness falls

I heard the wind rustling through the trees and ghostly voices rose from the fields
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
With the devil snappin’ at my heels*

I broke through the trees and there in the night
My father’s house stood shining hard and bright
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
But I ran till I fell shaking in his arms

I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
Will never again, sir, tear us from each other’s hearts
I got dressed, and to that house I did ride from out on the road, I could see its windows shining in light

I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
A woman I didn’t recognize came and spoke to me through a chained door
I told her my story, and who I’d come for
She said “I’m sorry son, but no one by that name lives here anymore”

My father’s house shines hard and bright it stands like a beacon calling me in the night
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
Shining ‘cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned

I think have posted this before,please do see the Boss narrate a little story ( You can’t fix the past) and playing this wonderful song 🙂

Hope you like the great rendition and the master’s laying it. I always thought Bruce Springsteen is a great song writer singer. This is one of my favorites.

Have a easy Sunday friends! Thank you!
