"Deliverance" as written by Warren Anderson Mathis, Jimmy Douglass and Timothy Z Mosley....
[Chorus]
I've been travelin for some time {*echoes*}
With my fishin pole and my bottle of shine {*echoes*}
On these long dark dusty roads {*echoes*}
Lookin there's nowhere to go
I guess I gotta hide away, far away
Cause I gotta find a way, to find my way
I gotta hide away, far away
Cause I gotta find a way, to find my way
Ay-ay-ay ay-ay-ay aaay

[Verse 1: Bubba Sparxxx]
I left out from mama's with my thumb in the wind
The leaves on the ground, winter's comin again
Solid on the surface as I crumble within
But legends are made out of vulnerable men
So on the brink of death I still manage livin life
Cause so rarely in this world are these chances given twice
I indeed sold my soul, without glancing at the price
No instructions when I was handed this device
But with what I did get, I was more than generous
Put others over self on several instances
But I'm back on my feet without a hint of bitterness
And one way or another I shall have deliverance
So I say

[Chorus]

[Verse 2: Bubba Sparxxx]
Can you recall a time people loved you unconditionally?
Toast in the new south, this one is for history
Then I slipped fell and caused the number's injury
Called the same people and it's yo you just missed them be
This the formula, dammit Bubba you had it
Why'd you have to keep it Polo and New Balance?
Then they start to question whether you a true talent
Or just a redneck substance abuse addict
So then you hide away just to try to find your way
And now they back to callin you 200 times a day
I want all y'all to know, good or bad I'll remember it
And 10 million sold in the name of my deliverance

[Chorus]

[Verse 3: Bubba Sparxxx]
Nothing could atone for the pain you've endured
The blood you shed is still stainin your velour
You took your wealth and knowledge and gave it to the poor
Only to discover that your savior's manure
Accepted me as kin, put before your younger brother
They put a lot on us hardly knowin one another
I honestly can say that over time I've come to love you
Now we are brothers and together no one can touch us
It hauls me with regret I never met your baby girl
She's an angel on your shoulder helpin us to save the world
This musical marriage is no coincedence
On my mama Timmy baby we shall have deliverance
So we say

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is a great fuckin album. Bubba should get alot morerespect for his work. This is a really goood song, he basically was explaining what happened in between his 1st album and deliverance. I like how he raps about stuff people can listen to and relate to since its personal stuff. Most of the time mainstream hip hop is fuckin pop, or party shit or stupid shit. Anyways if you dont have the album you should get it. Peace.....................WESTSIDE

    General CommentI think Bubba gets held down a little bit by mainstream because of Eminem's enormous popularity. That's not a knock on Em, I love his stuff too. But I think the general public is only ready to accept one "white rapper" and Em has that crown right now.

    Plus, Bubba has alot of country kick to his beats with the fiddles and such, which aren't widely respected by the hip-hop community or mainstream radio.

    I admit this was a hell of a follow-up to Dark Days, Bright Nights. I read that Bubba originally didn't even want to do this album because he didn't think he could top DDBN and if he couldn't, he wouldn't make the album.

    I think he either met DDBN or topped it. Agreed that he deserves some more mainstream media play, especially up in the north (MN) where I live.

    General CommentI love this song. It is definately for people with good strong rural routes. Something bigcity folk can only hope to understand.

    General CommentFew things to say, Hofi obviously partied too much, second, this album is suprisingly good, the lyrics are legit and representing the true hip hop that is missing in todays mainstream world (which honestly I don't mind, but it's nice when people show up in the mainstream then disappear again like Common, or J5, Atmosphere). To all the haters of this album all I can say is just because it is mainstream or was doesn't mean it has lost its true self. To all the others who don't know- Bubba Sparxxx is more hip-hop than 50 cent or G Unit could ever be so wake your dumbass up and look inbetween the lines.

    General CommentThis song is amazing. Bubba has a few others on this CD that should be well known. There is one song that wasn't even put up for lyrics that is amazing. Nowhere, the other song i'm talking about, you should listen to it, i feel its one of his best songs if not the best song he has.
