Pops Staples – Friendship

I mentioned in yesterday’s email that I’d be seeing Brandi Carlile at Red Rocks last night.

Tanya Tucker was slated to open the show, but she fell ill last week.

So Brandi called her friend Mavis Staples who jumped on a plane with her band and stepped in as the warm-up act. She’s 82, and she blew the roof off the amphitheater.

During Brandi’s set, Mavis returned to the stage and performed with Brandi a tune by her dad, Pops Staples.

I found a YouTube video from last night’s concert that captured the moment. That’s the video I share below. The version saved to the playlist is the studio recording by Pops.

That’s why I share…

Lyrics:

You can hold my hand
When you need to let go
I can be your mountain
When you’re feeling valley-low
I can be your streetlight
Showing you the way home
You can hold my hand
When you need to let go
  

I want a house with a crowded table
And a place by the fire for everyone
Let us take on the world while we’re young and able
And bring us back together when the day is done If we want a garden
  

We’re gonna have to sow the seed
Plant a little happiness
Let the roots run deep
If it’s love that we give
Then it’s love that we reap
If we want a garden
We’re gonna have to sow the seed
  

Yeah I want a house with a crowded table
And a place by the fire for everyone
Let us take on the world while we’re young and able
And bring us back together when the day is done
  

The door is always open
Your picture’s on my wall
Everyone’s a little broken
And everyone belongs
Yeah, everyone belongs
  

I want a house with a crowded table
And a place by the fire for everyone
Let us take on the world while we’re young and able
And bring us back together when the day is done
And bring us back together when the day is done
