Awaiting on you all

One of my favorite musicians is and was George Harrison. He was the mystical Beatle. Harrison more than Lennon and McCartney seemed to be most in touch with the world around him.  That might be very unfair to Ringo Starr and if so I apologize. One of my favorite Harrison lyrics is “Awaiting on You All.” Last night I was listening once again to the Concert for Bangladesh and the song played. Lent is a time of renewal for many people and those lyrics speak volumes to me about renewal.

GEORGE HARRISON lyrics – Awaiting On You All

You don’t need no love in
You don’t need no bed pan
You don’t need a horoscope or a microscope
The see the mess that you’re in
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We’ve been polluted so long
Now here’s a way for you to get clean

By chanting the names of the lord and you’ll be free
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
Chanting the names of the lord and you’ll be free
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see

You don’t need no passport
And you don’t need no visas
You don’t need to designate or to emigrate
Before you can see Jesus
If you open up your heart
You’ll see he’s right there
Always was and will be
He’ll relieve you of your cares

By chanting the names of the lord and you’ll be free
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
Chanting the names of the lord and you’ll be free
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see

You don’t need no church house
And you don’t need no Temple
You don’t need no rosary beads or them books to read
To see that you have fallen
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We’ve been kept down so long
Someone’s thinking that we’re all green

And while the Pope owns 51% of General Motors
And the stock exchange is the only thing he’s qualified to quote us
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
By chanting the names of the lord and you’ll be free

    You are right on. This song gets stuck in my head in a good way. The lyrics are cool too. “And while the Pope owns 51% of General Motors
    And the stock exchange is the only thing he’s qualified to quote us”.
    “You don’t need to designate or to emigrate
    Before you can see Jesus”.

    Great stuff George.
