T'was the night before M*O*F*R*O
when all through the land,
there was a bounty of folks
psyched to see their favorite band.
And I in my Mofro jeans and "More Harmonica" tee,
I am bursting at the seams; I am excited you see!!
This band does something to me ~ deep down inside,
and once you are bitten, there is no where to hide.
I arrive at the venue as early as I can,
as I like to be upfront, as the crazy fan I am.
The excitement around slowly starts to build,
soon peeps are everywhere, as the room it is filled.
As Our Boys are announced, and that first note is played,
all worries, dilemmas, and problems, well ... they awl begin to fade.
For the next few hours, I am absolutely blown away,
it is hard to describe what I feel, when Mofro songs are played.
They open with Ho Cake and the crowd it just goes wild,
this song is very special to me, so awl I can dew is smile!
Next is Lochloosa, Diyo Dayo, and I Believe .....
Country Ghetto, Blackwater, & Slow Hot and Sweaty!!
The night is flying by, we are almost half way there,
Whitehouse, Orange Blossom, Georgia Warhorse then Air ...
Brighter Days, Everybody's, Florida and Free,
Good Lawd Almighty - can you feel this energy!?!?!
Performing Harps N Drums is anything but tame,
during this tune JJ introduces them all by name ....
On Dennis, on Todd, on AC and Ferrell ...
On Trube, on Art, then JJ .... no Daryl
For the first encore, JJ sings King Hummingbird,
the crowd it is silent; not a sound could be heard.
JJ sings this song with every fiber of his being,
many of have been there; we can relate to its meaning.
Now we know there is more, so be patient don't pout,
JJ + his harp = How Junior Got His Head Put Out!
The crowd it is taken by the vibe of this show,
Our Boys how they feel it, then they sing ... Gotta Know!
What a wonderful way to end the perfect night,
One by one Our boys left the stage, out of our sight.
There is something about seeing a live Mofro show,
that will remain in my heart for days to come, as many of you know.
I wish each of you joy, health, peace and happiness
during this Holiday and everyday!
