Friday Song: If The Sky Could Talk
He works as the spiritual head of the Davis Academy in Atlanta, Georgia.
And he writes incredibly beautiful tunes. Some of his songs are in Hebrew, some are explorations directly from certain books of the Bible, and some are his own English language interpretations of his walk with Spirit.
You’ll be hearing plenty more from and about Micah over time here at String Love. Micah is an extraordinary soul and one of the most powerful allies I’ve had in my walk with the guitar.
Of all of Micah’s songs (and there are many–pay attention here and I’ll let you know when his forthcoming recording is ready!), I’m currently most in love with If The Sky Could Talk.
Micah was kind enough to share the lyrics and chords with me and consent to me sharing this song with you.
So, here it is.
I’m including an informal recording of Micah and I playing this tune together last summer.
Chords to follow as soon as Micah gets them to me (wink)…
If The Sky Could Talk
If the sky could talk every cloud would have a story
If the heaves could speak then the sun might laugh
If the forest could talk every pine would have a secret
If the woods could speak then the redwoods might sigh
If the desert could talk every grain of sand would whisper
If the desert could speak then the dunes might cry
If the river could talk then the current might whistle,
If the river could speak then the creek might sing
Every voice and every word, every sound was ever heard
Across the earth, up to the sky, there’s not a sound simply passes on by
If the sky could talk every storm would be a prayer,
If the heavens could speak then the moon might cry
If the forest could talk then the moss would spin a yarn
If the woods could speak then the leaves might lie
If the desert could talk every rock would say water,
If the desert could speak then the ground would groan
If the river could talk then the water might yodel
If the river could speak it’d be calling your name.
The sky knows what’s up, and the ground knows what’s going down,
the wind knows where the wind blows and the sun shines where the sun goes.
The sky knows what’s going down and the ground knows what’s up.
The moon shines in the moon shine and the tide ebbs and flows.
