Omaha (Music Video), Mark Urso

Omaha – Written by Adam Duritz. Tell me what you think! This one is tough, the lyrics are thick and you have to phrase it just right. No drums but it sounds pretty complete with just me and my Epi Joe Pass.

Peace friends!

Start tearing the old man down, run past the heather and down to the old road
Start turning the grain into the ground! Roll a new leaf over!
In the middle of the night there’s an old man treading around in the gathered rain
Well mister IF you want to walk on water, could you drop a line my way?

Omaha! Somewhere in middle America!
Get right to the heart of matters! It’s the heart that matters more!
– I think you’d better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door!

Start threading a needle, brush past the shuttle that slides through the cold room
Start turning the wool across the wire, roll a new life over!
In the middle of the night there’s an old man threading his toes through a bucket of rain
Hey mister YOU don’t want to walk on water! You’re only gonna walk all over me!

Omaha! Somewhere in middle America!
Get right to the heart of matters! It’s the heart that matters more
I think you’d better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door!

Start running the banner down, drop past the color come up through the summer rain
Start turning the girl into the ground. Roll a new love over!
In the middle of the day there’s a young man rolling around in the earth and rain
Hey mister IF you’re gonna walk on water, you know you’re only gonna walk all over me!

Omaha! Somewhere in middle America!
Get right to the heart of matters! It’s the heart that matters more!
I think you’d better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door!
