There's a place outside of Memphis
Where I met the travelin' man
Preachin' on a wall of sound
Built by his ragin' band
I saw a sparkle in his eye
When I asked him for his name
He said Dr. Jones is who I am
Are You ready to play my game
I can take you to the mountain
But only heavens love can set you free

Dr. Jones & The Kings Of Rhythm
Dr. Jones He’s a rhythm king
Dr. Jones & The Kings Of Rhythm
Tearin' darkness down with a ragin' swing

Townsfolk wouldn't hear the Doc
And they drove him Out Of town
He'd shake the dust right off his feet
And leave without a sound
But you know he spoke the truth to me
Gave me reason to believe
Tell it round the whole wide world
I'll I never be the same
Well he took me to the mountain
But it was heaven’s love that set me free

And he wonders if each trial
Is really worth each dusty mile
Every night
He dreams right through the pain
He smiles
He knows he labors not in vain

Isaiah 61:1 / Luke 10:10-11 / I Corinthians 15:58

    My InterpretationSounds to me like a story of how one of the band members of Guardian was transformed by an experience he had when meeting a God-believing band leader of another band.

    This band leader did his musical preaching in Memphis one time but was somehow kicked out by the people there. But the singer followed along with Dr. Jones and I guess this was one of the reasons he became inspired to help form the Guardian band and perform Christian music.
