Go toward the light…

Dr. John died this week. I wanted to share something of his that touched me.

That is a short clip of him solo during the filming of Treme’ If you want to hear the rest of it then check this out.

Here are some of the lyrics from the song so you are prepared to experience it fully:

“You Might Be Surprised”

Life is a near death experience
Hell is right here on this great big Earth
It could be a little taste of heaven
If we only knew our worth
All we got to do is want it bad enough
To push our self through
We always underestimate ourselves
We do every day we can always do better
In each and every way
If we don’t believe in ourselves
Nobody’s gonna do it
If we don’t push ourselves
We’ll never make it through it…

Go toward the Light Dr. John, we’ll see you on the other side.
