Buddy Guy - Flesh & Bone Lyrics

Daddy read the good book through and through
Said that the Lord's word is the only truth
It ain't over the day you die
We all live on In the sweet bye and bye

This life is more than flesh and bone
Find out now before you're gone
When you go your spirit lives on
This life is more than flesh and bone

Now I know my daddy was right
I read that good book and I've seen the light
Mama and daddy have passed and gone
They're still with me 'cause love lives on

This life is more than flesh and bone
Find out now before you're gone
When you go your spirit lives on
This life is more than flesh and bone

The God I feed on is real as rain
More than words can ever explain
We'll meet again some sweet day
Far beyond this world of pain

This life is more than flesh and bone
Find out now before you're gone
When you go your spirit goes on
This life is more than flesh and bone

    Its our duty to make sure our youth appreciate real soulful talented music again. And encourage those of power to bring back Blues/Blues Rock and Jazz to the radio again. ..

    Buddy Guy's solo work is criminally underrated...

  33. Samson

    Praise Jesus!!


    +Before Public this song is heavily implying Christianity

    Blues Resurrection

    But Buddy Guy's remembering B.B.


    +Before Public "daddy read the good book through and through" "this life is more, then flesh and bone, find out now before you're gone" totally not a spiritual song implying the message of Christianity


    +Before Public he is remembering bb by singing about the afterlife that he hopes to see bb in


    +Before Public bb and buddy are both Christian by the way.

  34. Samson

    Buddy is keeping the blues alive

    Arch Angel

    him and clapton the only top 10 names left..
