Memphis the musical - The Music Of My Soul (finale) Lyrics


"The Music Of My Soul" is a song from Memphis the musical performed by Huey, Felicia and Company.

HUEY
When I was a young boy
My daddy satme down
He said “son, don’t you never go
To the dark side of town
I’m talking downtown Memphis
See, that’s where the black folk play”
And I said “Yes sir daddy”
And then I snuck down anyway
See never was taught to read none
Oh no never taught to write
The only thing my daddy taught
Was white should stay with white
But I heard it through the alleys
It floated on the bees
It burst out through the doorways
And it knocked me through my knees
It broke down all of my senses
And made me feel so home
See I was lost but now I found
The music of my soul
The music of my soul

And then one day my daddy died
And we laid him in his grave
And my mama she cried and cried and cried
And prayed that he’d be saved
But all I felt was pity
For he never understood
Well how could people be so bad
And made me feel so good
It went run through my body
It drive me by my heart

FELICIA
It shot out from my fingertips
And pulled me right apart

BOTH
It broke down all my senses
It made me feel so home
And I would love it til the day I died

CAST
The music of my soul
It broke down all my senses
It made me so feel home
See I was lost until I found
I was deaf until I heard

HUEY
I’ll make this world come around to

CAST
The music of my soul
The music of my soul

[Thanks to Shiela for lyrics]
