Some other versions of "Promised Land"


Driving all the way down to New Orleans
Singing songs noone will ever hear
As the birds were flying by we heard them calling
There's a place of our souls nearby the sea

Take me down to the ocean, to the promised land
All the dreams we had would finally come true
When I come back to my home town
I won't be the same
I'll be empty, I'll be missing
All the beauty I once knew

From Memphis down to Jackson, Mississippi
We were heading for the Gulf of Mexico
Every hour we would pass another city
Seeing places we have never seen before
As the moon rose over endless land
We stopped to get some sleep
And the stars above were telling us
Some secrets we will keep

Take me down to the ocean …

Like the rivers to the sea
We would flow and still believe
We would find our destination
Then a bird upon a tree
Sang a Song of Cedar Key
And he led us to the place
And it's harmony and grace
Took our hearts and let them stay forever

Take me down to the ocean …
