Music Monday! Dave Matthews Band – Joy Ride

While never making it on an album, Joy Ride has seen many renditions to its lyrics when preformed live. Dave Matthews was once asked the meaning behind his lyrics, and leaving his words to the interpretation of his listener, he stated, “Anonymity of art.” To that, I leave you to your own conclusions as to the meaning behind these words.

 

Oh, come on, come on, oh y’all
If we get it right, we gonna eat the world
I got your question, just get in line
‘Cause my intention is to make you mine

Yeah, I take care of everything
All you need, friend, is right here
And if you’re lost, I got a bobblehead Jesus
It only cost you, get on your knees

Money is clean ’cause we scrub it good
Guns and gasoline, I wanna save the world
Nothing’s obscene if we only close our eyes
Boys and girls, welcome to this joyride

Come on, come on, listen here
If you wanna steal the world, you’ll get it in
And if you’re lost, I got a bobblehead Buddha
Legs crossed, but he’s in the groove

Money is clean ’cause we scrub it good
Guns and gasoline, I wanna save the world
Nothing’s obscene if we only close our eyes
Boys and girls, welcome to your joyride
Joyride
Joyride
Joyride

If you’re confused
If you’re unsure
Be sure of this: we’ll use you well
And if you’re lost, ah
We’ll find your way
Give me your soul friend, it’s Okay

Yes, Yes, Yes
Everything’s playing out
Yes, Yes, Yes
Everything’s playing out
Right into this
Get get up shoot shoot
And get in line

The money’s clean cause we scrub it good
With guns and gasoline we’re gonna save the world
Nothing’s obscene if we only close our eyes
Boys and girls welcome to this Joy Ride
