I Want To Rock Your Gypsy Soul......Every RV'er Has One!

                                                              This is our weather for 3 days!

We have had some messed up winter weather. The snow is barely gone and we've had fog and freezing drizzle for the past three days. It's been so foggy that I started humming the line "when that fog horn blows, I will be coming home." Of course, that's a line out of a Van Morrison song. This one here.....

Here are the words if you want to sing along..
We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was one as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when the fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And magnificently we will fold into the mystic

When that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will fold into the mystic   

While I was looking on YouTube for Van, I noticed several other artists have done Into the Mystic. That's the way it is with a great song, and most of Mr. Morrison's are. Here are some examples.....

Colin James

Joe Cocker

Bonefish Johnny
Reggae style

Allman Brothers

Zac Brown Band
country style

I have to say that Van Morrison has always been one of my very favorite artist. I'm thankful to be in the same generation as he. Most of you can relate to this next one and even if your young, I'm sure you've heard it. This was Van the Man's first band. Them. (they must have spent a lot of time thinking of that name)  


                                                        Here Comes The Night

I'm sure everyone Rv'er can relate to this one. We all hear the call of the highway, don't we? 

                                             Ancient Highway    

I hope I haven't OD'ed anyone on Van Morrison. There are so many more that I love and struggled not to include here.

I hope and pray everyone remembers to let their soul and spirit fly into the mystic. Much love and peace to you all. Don't forget to love on another.

  1. I love how things as basic as the weather can make us remember lines from songs. Love Van. Astral Weeks is classic. He's put out some great stuff in more recent years, as well, like "The Philosopher's Stone."

    Some great lines in this song. Very sensual.

  2. Michael - you do find the best songs. And I hope you see the sun pretty soon.

  3. Hi T and Sandie. I have to tell you, the very best music comes from our generation. I have listened to the new stuff and it just can't compare. You are both very sweet. Thank you!
