"Swing Low" as written by Rocco Deluca and Jude Cole....
Feels like the pavement
Proud and cold
Walking feet
Walking soul

I'm rolling out my bones
Lay me down
Let me go
Feeling heavy
The ground is cold
Lay me down
Take it slow
I'm ready to stumble, sing & then swing low

Feels like my hands
Reach to touch
Strike and tremble
When they hold too much

I'm rolling out my bones
Lay me down
Let me go
Feeling heavy
The ground is cold
Lay me down
Take it slow
I'm ready to stumble, sing & then swing low

I'm rolling out my bones
Lay me down
Let me go
Feeling heavy
The ground is cold
Lay me down
Take it slow
I'm ready to stumble, sing & then swing low

    General CommentLay me down
    take it slow
    I'm ready to stumble,
    sing and then swing low

    does anyone know if this is a sexual reference?

    General Comment@bonnaroo 2007 Rocco prefaced this song by saying it was the staple singers who helpted to interest him in music and that this song is a bit of a tribute to them.
