lyrics

Hungry and thirsty, walking down the street
Looking in the windows at the good things to eat and drink
But I got no money in my pocket and all my dreams are torn
I know I am not welcome in these places, no –
I do not belong but I want it all so bad I can almost taste it

Wanna drink some wine wanna eat some bread
I’m looking for a land of milk and honey

Yes I remember one hot summer evening
When the dying sun hung like a great big purple eyeball
Weeping all over the buildings while the muscle cars on Yonge Street Lurched from stoplight to stoplight
And the panhandlers and the hookers
And the road warriors and the hot dog vendors
And the suits and the rock stars were all stumbling through the haze

Wanna drink some wine wanna eat some bread
I’m looking for a land of milk and honey

Deepest blue I hear a saxophone play
Leading the band in the resurrection parade

I walk into this room it was the sanctuary of an old church
And the band is sitting there
Leaning on their instruments with a look of glory in their eyes
So we jammed a while
I think it was a blues shuffle in A
Then this rat-tailed drummer puts down his sticks
And give me a look and says,
“So tell me, son, what are you really doing here?”
I said

Wanna drink some wine…

And you know when a man will not satisfy his hunger
With the things that are righteous he fills up on whatever is at hand
There’s a man standing in the alley
Singing out of the dark straight to my heart
“Come and get it, wine, good wine, milk and honey and fresh bread
And it won’t cost you nothing because it’s already been paid for.”

Wanna drink some wine…

Deepest blue I hear a saxophone play
Leading the band in the resurrection parade

Way off in the back corner of heaven is a tiny barrio
Where all the people live who just barely squeezed through the gate
And in its dingiest corner is a greasy little lounge
Called Grace’s Bar and Grill
… Red Rain has the house gig there for all eternity …
and every Thursday night the Lord stops in to play saxophone

Wanna drink some wine
Wanna eat some bread ...
