Cocker, Joe - Into The Mystic Lyrics

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when that fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it
I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I don't have to fear it
I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will float into the mystic
Come on girl...

Cocker, Joe Into The Mystic Comments
  1. Scott Currie

    One giant salutes another...

  2. Jim Shorts

    Just so amazing !!

  3. John Bennett

    No disrespect to Joe cause I really think he was one of the greatest. Usually when he covers someone’s song he ‘steals’ it. Not this time folks. Mr. Morrison will always own this one... especially his live version.

    Miss Tery

    Agree... but I love this too

  4. My Basements on Fire

    Legend. My favorite song . Mr. Morrison is proud of this I'm sure . I was born in baden to Canadian parents who were there as a military posting. I feel special haha

  5. Lucio Santoro

    Visto negli anni ottanta a Roma
    Ho ancora u.n ricordo bellisso. Rip

  6. Violet Kumarina

    RIP Joe Cocker. You’re a legend in your own right, still rocking souls. God bless you.

  7. Walter Wilkins

    The artistry.

  8. chip block

    Do you remember when this great singer stood upon this earth? I am happy that he shared his music and life with us. I was 14 when I first heard him on my album of Woodstock.

  9. Ralph Cramden

    " This song is Van Morrison cover " doesn't make any sense, you moron ! It is a song , not a cover , you imbecile !

  10. Joshua Dowling

    Jebus fuck. Couldn't someone in the wardrobe department set this guy up with a dark suit or some shit. This guy is sweating like a Mexican in a fucking ISIS truck.

  11. Jeff Barnes

    He looks like a drunken panhandler but sings like a champion. Never got the recognition he deserves as a vocalist and interpreter of songs.

  12. Linda Wagner

    Miss Joe Cocker! RIP and Merry Christmas Joe!

  13. Riding The wave

    Amazing, the entire band, classic

  16. Douglas B aka DWBonny, author at large

    I can’t wait to rock the gypsy Soul of my long-lost sweetheart (wherever she may be (she’s elusive, that’s for sure!)) Coming to get you...!

  50. RED CAN

    Cocker singing Morrison...I'm in. Where do I sign?

  51. Dale Brabb

    If I'd written a song, even if it were a hit and Joe Cocker decided to cover it, no higher accolade.

  52. normskimonger

    He was a plumber from Sheffield, He got famous just before I started at the art college there.
    He apparently used to perform at Shades on Eccleshall road

  69. Robin Mendoza

    I was prepared to not like this when I heard the first notes with the funky keyboard, but I forgot how much I love Joe Cocker’s voice. One of the all-time greatest performers.

  70. 51tomtomtom

    sweaty shirts instead of shiny glamour dancers ! It's like having real sex with somebody you love instead of jerking off with a designer-dildo....

  71. Sonora108

    I was at Woodstock 1969 and actually was straight when I heard Joe Cocker sing "I Shall be Released" and was just mesmerised by that version of that song. As much as I love Joe Cocker (RIP) I think Van Morrison has a slight edge over Joe on this one.

  72. Tom Oman

    Jim Keltner is so ubiquitous I once found him in my yard while I was raking leaves.

    WC Paul

    That's a great line....and damn near true.

    The Dolphin

    I once found him in my yard raking up the leaves himself.

  73. Phil Wright

    Too bad he doesn't sing with feelings,,,,phenomenal!

  74. Kat Masterson

    full body shivers..when it barely had began
    Nothing gets that far

  75. Linda Robison

    Joe can do anyone with deep soul

  76. Second Visions

    When Joe sweats like this you know the performance was perfect

  77. thestick52

    Love & light from Brazil... RIP Joe 💔

  78. Charles Skeen

    I miss Joe, what soul. Van woulda liked this too

  79. RKDRHS8

    Joe said he always wanted to be a "bees winger" a singer and he made these songs his own he was born with that gift so said Ray Charles, how many of today's singers will be remembered for such a voice. Miss you Joe! RIP.

  80. Malcolm Platt

    absolutely beautiful rendition, RIP Joe.
