    Lyrics

    We get by on love and faith
    We get by with a smile on our face
    We get by with help from our kin
    We get by through thick and through thin
    We get by
    No matter what happens I’ll be there for you
    We get by

    Was just the other day
    I heard from my old friend
    She was going through changes once again
    Matters of the head
    Matters of the heart
    May be too early to tell
    But it’s never too late to start
    We get by
    No matter how long I’ll be waiting here for you
    We get by

    Day by day line by line
    If you don’t have yours you got mine
    We get by day by day
    We get by in our own way
    We get by
    No matter what happens I’ll be there for you
    No matter how long I’ll be waiting here for you
    No matter how far I’ll come running
    We get by

    Hard Times Come Again No More Mavis Staples

    4:13

    Current economic times are tough and may seem familiar to those who experienced them before. These images are gritty and real. Sometimes history repeats itself, but hopefully the worst is behind us. Although Hard Times Come Again No More sounds as if it were written during the Great Depression, it was actually written in 1854 by Stephen C. Foster, America's pioneer songwriter. Mavis Staples, one of the greatest living gospel and R&B singers, recorded the song as part of the CD Beautiful Dreamer - The Songs of Stephen Foster a tribute album released on the Emergent Music label in 2004. Included are many of his famous and some lesser known songs recorded with contemporary interpretations and arrangements. I do not own the right to the song, audio, or images contained in this video.

    Lyrics

    Gotta change around here
    Can't go on this way
    Things gotta change around here
    Say it loud say it clear
    Things gonna change around here

    Finger on the trigger around here
    Bullets flying mothers crying
    Gotta change around here
    Get it straight be sure that you hear
    Gonna change around here

    What good is freedom
    if we haven't learned to be free
    Day after day year after year
    Gonna change around here

    X is the letter
    blue is the color
    one is the number
    Now is the time
    Gonna change around here
    Say it loud say it clear
    Gotta change around here

    Buddy Guy and Mavis Staples Perform At The Grammy Awards

    6:11

    No offense to Youtube, but the story missing from this video is Mr. Buddy Guy. With all due respect, Youtube tagged this under Cyndi Lauper (not taking away from her performance, she did an excellent job!).

    When I found the video on Youtube's Grammy site, it didn't even mention Buddy's name in the tags, which I thought was a borderline crime.

    I understand the Pop commercialized name recognition dynamic, but Buddy Guy is a Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee and 6 time Grammy award winner (which includes his Grammy for Living Proof that he won the evening of this performance).

    In my humble opinion, this should have been Buddy's #7 (Skin Deep should have been #6).

    Too bad the person responsible for the lighting didn't understand who was being left in the dark for the majority of the performance!

    Either way, tip of the hat to the Grammy Awards for giving the Blues a stage and for Youtube for telecasting the event!!

    Also- Congratulations to Mavis Staples who won her first Grammy award in the category for Best Americana Album for 'You Are Not Alone'.

    The song they performed is Wang Dang Doodle (Willie Dixon) which was made popular by the late Koko Taylor in 1966 (reaching #4 on the Billboard R&B charts).

    Mavis Staples - Wade In The Water

    6:34

    A popular slave spiritual even before the Civil War, “Wade in the Water” was not formally published until 1901.   Its lyrics contain coded instructions to fugitive slaves about how to avoid being re-captured.  It suggests walking in a stream bed in order to foil pursuing bloodhounds.

    The Staple Singers Soul Train 1974

    8:47

    The Staple Singers were an American gospel, soul and R&B singing group. Roebuck Pops Staples (1914--2000), the patriarch of the family, formed the group with his children Cleotha (1934--2013), Pervis (b. 1935), Yvonne (b. 1936), and Mavis (b. 1939). They are best known for their 1970s hits Respect Yourself, I'll Take You There, If You're Ready (Come Go with Me), and Let's Do It Again, all of which (except I'll Take You There) peaked on the Hot 100 less than a week away from Christmas Day.

    In 1999, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Pops Staples died of complications from a concussion suffered in December 2000. In 2005, the group was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Mavis Staples has continued to carry on the family tradition and continues to add her vocal talents to both the projects of other artists and her own solo ventures. Cleotha Staples died in Chicago on February 21, 2013, after suffering from Alzheimer's disease for over a decade.

    While the family surname is Staples, the group used the singular form for its name, The Staple Singers.

    Soul Train is an American musical variety television program, which aired in syndication from 1971 until 2006. In its 35-year history, the show primarily featured performances by R&B, soul, and hip hop artists, although funk, jazz, disco, and gospel artists have also appeared. The series was created by Don Cornelius, who also served as its first host and executive producer.

    Production was suspended following the 2005--06 season, with a rerun package (known as The Best of Soul Train) airing for two years subsequently. As a nod to Soul Train's longevity, the show's opening sequence (during later seasons) contained a claim that it was the longest-running first-run, nationally syndicated program in television history, with over 1,100 episodes produced from the show's debut through the 2005-06 season. Despite the production hiatus, Soul Train will continue to hold this honor until at least 2016, if and when its nearest competitor, Entertainment Tonight, completes its 35th season. (If ET does not complete a 35th season, Wheel of Fortune would pass in 2018 if it continues to air.)

    Lyrics

    Give me a one way ticket
    Somewhere I’ve never been
    I’m rock paper and scissors
    I’m bound to win
    You can’t shake me
    Ain’t no use in trying
    Anywhere anyway anytime

    I’m a fighter I’m a lover
    There is no other way
    Could be one of the other on any given day
    You can’t fool me
    Ain’t no use in trying
    Anyway anywhere anytime

    You got me halfway gone
    You got me halfway there
    Got me halfway down
    Halfway up in the air
    Reminds me of a story
    Tell you later if you don’t mind
    Anywhere anyway anytime

    Mavis Staples - Only the lord knows, Youre not Alone, Ill Take You There Live

    13:55

    Mavis Staples is a legend, but she's not stuck in the past. You probably know her work with her family band, The Staple Singers, which was all over the radio in the '70s with hits like Respect Yourself, Let's Do It Again and I'll Take You There (which she excerpts in her performance here).

    What you may not know is that Mavis Staples has been actively working with her fellow Chicago musician (and Wilco leader) Jeff Tweedy on her upcoming album, You Are Not Alone. Tweedy produced the record and wrote a few songs for her, as well — including the title track, which she sings here.

    The album was recorded at Wilco's studio, The Loft, and it includes songs by John Fogerty, Randy Newman, Rev. Gary Davis, Allen Toussaint and Pops Staples. You Are Not Alone also features a fine guest roster, including not only Tweedy (on bass, guitar and vocals), but also Nora O'Connor, Kelly Hogan and Wilco's Patrick Sansone on keys and vibes.

    Rick Holmstrom, the skilled guitarist who accompanies Staples here, also plays on the record and in her touring band. And while You Are Not Alone doesn't come out until Sept. 14, you can get a good idea of what a treat it is by watching this stripped-down but soulful Tiny Desk Concert.

    Hard Times Come Again No More

    4:12

    In March, 2004 Mavis Staples came to Nashville to record Hard Times Come Again No More for our first release, Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster. The day was magical. We spent the afternoon as guests of historic Sound Emporium studio who graciously donated one of their rooms for the recording session. Buddy Miller, Steve Fishell and Matt Rollings backed Mavis up while our favorite sound engineer Dave Sinko recorded the incredible performance. Mavis nailed the track on the first run-through, but we persuaded her to sing the song a few times for our own pleasure and to the delight of our special in-studio guests Emmylou Harris and Julie Miller.
