Lyric For The Day 24.9.11 from Shelter Me by Blackie & The Rodeo Kings (written by Buddy and Julie Miller)

Blackie head shots 

"The earth can shake the sky come down
The mountains all fall to the ground
But I will fear none of these things
Shelter me Lord underneath your wings

(Shelter Me Lord)
Hide me underneath you wings
Hide me deep inside your heart
In your refuge - cover me
The world can shake
But Lord I'm making you my hiding place"

-      From Shelter Me by Blackie & The Rodeo Kings (written by Buddy and Julie Miller)

Loved this Psalmlike song when it appeared on Buddy Miller’s superb record, Universal United House Of Prayer, but it stands out even more wonderfully on the new album Kings and Queens by Blackie & The Rodeo Kings. The dirty blues guitar setting and deep guttural vocal which Patti Scialfa just soars over. It gives a real belief that God can be the refuge that the lyric speaks of. This is one for the Alternative hymnbook for Churches.
