Rolling down the road,
Going nowhere,
Guitar packed in the trunk...
Somewhere around mile marker 112,
Papa started hummin' the funk...
I gotta jones in my bones before we know,
We were singing this melody...
Stop the car pulled out the guitar,
Halfway to New Orleans...

Said take me home...
Take me home...

Could feel the sun about to rise,
When I realized we had nothing to fear...
It's just me and my daddy and a kid named Cope,
Making music that nobody would hear...
And then the sun let up and it split the night,
Spillin' over our jubilee...
Ten thousand cars by the side of the road,
Groovin' far as the eye can see...

Said take me home...
Take me home...
Said take me home...
Said take me home...

This Greyhound is delta bound mama,
Baby boy done finally found,
Said this Greyhound is delta bound mama,
Baby boy done finally found his way home...
Said take me home...

Here we go,
Hot damn you should have felt the groove,
Like I was swimming in a sea of soul...
The sun was rising and the day was hot,
And we was all about to lose control...
My daddy turned his face up towards the sky,
And I knew that there was nothing to lose...
I felt the crowd breathe in and I closed my eyes,
And we disappeared into the groove...

Said take me home...
Said take me home...
Take me home...
Said take me home...

Straight from the water...
Straight from the water, children...
(repeat)
You don't know nothin' about this...

Take me home...
Said take me home...
(repeat)

Alpine, scroll down the wall. You be very outnumbered. Gospel delta funk groove rock. 
 SM, that's what I like to see, something positive. Well done, if I may say so.

We have RP on in the background in the office all day so very rarely rate or comment on songs, but I have to say that this one had everyone's foot tapping and went down well with everyone so just thought I'd give it a rating (9) and a mention :)

I've often wondered if the lyric "boy named Cope" refers to Citizen Cope. Anybody?
 
From https://soultrain.com/2011/07/22/sound-check-marc-broussard-seasoned-to-perfection/

“I was at an after party for Citizen Cope in New York,” Broussard recalls, “and he hired this girl from Atlanta to do some of the catering. She made a gumbo with chicken and sausage and shrimp; now that’s pretty sacrilegious coming from where I’m from! You don’t do chicken, sausage and seafood in the same gumbo. It’s just not cool!”


No kidding; chicken doesn't belong in gumbo. 
{#Bananajam}Good groove.
burned out on this...
I'm grinning like a village idiot without a village!  (<---- stolen from below)  More whiplash guitar!  Love, love, love!
{#Clap}
This is SOOOOO boring....

GO HOME ALREADY!

My story:  I was in a horrible funk - a bad depression. I hadn't danced, sung, or even laughed out loud for months. And one day, while my brother was out of town, I was using his computer, and listening to KINK.FM.  They played this song, and something inside me snapped.  I started to dance to it, and then I was grinning, and then laughing at myself. It was the best five minutes of my life, right then.

I love this song in ways I can't even express in words. Marc Broussard may have saved my life, and he didn't even know it.  I've heard other things by him, and he can still make me grin like a village idiot without a village. 

Lovelovelove his music.
 

Miss you so much Cynaera...

we be dancing...  love this song...
 
The 7 and 3 year-old approve.  As does the 52 year-old.

Just a good, swampy song!

Love this guy's voice... so full of soul and guts... boogie down...
He's playing here next week at a club downtown and I'm looking forward to being there.
Could this really be 7 years old?

Saw him "accidentally," as an opening act.  When Bonnie Raitt came onstage, she said, "How can anyone follow that?",  and invited him to play with her band for the rest of the evening.

He's good, and I don't understand why he isn't more popular.
forgot about this song sweet!!

Love it, so southern US.
marc totallly delivers live, he's the real deal.
did he borrow the hook from Gram Rabbit?
Stompety-stomp-stomp! Feet, do yo' thang! Love the near subsonic background chorus too. This is growing on me.
Love this song. If you haven't watched it, check out the version of Marc doing this acoustically at a radio show performance (via YouTube).

I know he sounds Black, pretty good for a white boy!!!!!!!

On behalf of white guys from south Louisiana, WTF? "The cover art makes him look like a total douche"? "Pretty good for a white boy"? Hey, look honey - those white boys can read, write and even sing. It's almost like they're human!

Would you think it appropriate to say that Nelson Mandela is a pretty good international diplomat for a black boy? Probably not.

On a less insulting note, I've often wondered if the lyric "boy named Cope" refers to Citizen Cope. Anybody?

This young man cranks out serious Delta funk!  Seen him live a couple of times, and will again in October.  A worthwhile experience.

I agree that this song is great and different from the rest of the album... But this is the only song on the album that I liked. I felt like this was the only song that had any feeling to it.
Sing it homeboy!
Damn. White boy can sang...

I guess this is an OK song. I can only give it a 4 because KFOG ruined for me ... they used to play it like every 15 minutes. So now I only listen to RP.
For some reason, I'd like to hear Tom Jones sing this.
Excellent! Another little piece of home!
I think we will be hearing more from this guy, a great talent and if he can write good songs, man..............
wah! This just caught my attention...(OBVIOUSLY TOO FOCUSED ON WORK)...I think I'm liking this !
Damn! Sing it white boy! :devil_pimp:
this song gets old for me quick...
The chorus sounds like Chicago's "I'm a Man". Anyone else hear that?
I believe this baby boy has found his way Home.
:devil_pimp: Whoa!
Southern? Soulful? White Boy? Elvis, anyone?
7 :arrow: 8 'cause I turned it up real loud.
Wow! The cover art makes him look like a total douche but this song sure proved that axiom about not judging a book by its ... um ... by its ... um ... something something, you know what I'm getting at
Oh, nice!
how is this only a 7.4!? This song is the coolest.
Pretty kickin for a louisiana white boy.

This was in regular rotation on KMTT in Seattle when it was new. They stream, but have maybe the shortest playlist in creation. Nice people, but not RP. Not close.
Young white guy?Woulda thunk it. I'm liking it.

This is pretty damn good.

That was exactly what I thought. Major reality vertigo.

The lick was ripped from I'm a Man by Stevie Winwood
I love this bluesy tune and the video. Toe tappin!!
Can do without this....
He looks way too young to have a voice like that. Excellent number.
Whoa!!! this guy is white! who knew? tell johnny lang he should take some lessons from this cat.
Saw him in Athens, GA last Wed. He was really good, and his guitar player was great. I really enjoyed his Master Blaster cover. Made the whole concert for me.
The video of this is great too! Where music should be these days in the pop world.....too bad it never comes close to being this soulful and moving.
A 7.3 rating for this crap.... :frustrated:
that white boy has some soul.
Love the rhythm on this, gets me chair boppin'.

wonderful!! is the rest of his CD this good??
I would have to say no. This track is very misleading in regards to the rest of the CD. I bought it based off of the quality of this track. It was nice to hear some serious soul from a new, younger guy and this track has a raw, blues feel to it. Unfortunately, the rest of the CD seems like someone wanted to mimic more mainstream sounds like Josh Kelley or even John Mayer in some respects. Which is fine, but don't include a track like this on the same album. My .02.
Nothing special. Can we have a melody, please?

Agreed! I had heard this song on a local radio station, and loved it. This man doesn't look big enough to be making such a large noise though lol. :bounce:
He doesn't look old enough either!
speak of the devil farqwaar
This SOOOO Good!! and the rest of the disc will not disappoint. Saw Marc recently with Gabe Dixon (anybody?) He was amazing!!!
