Ms. Jody - "Still Strokin'"

I love, love, love Ms. Jody.  She's great in concert and her records are fabulous.  Ok, with that being said, this is an awesome song and it represents the come back that southern soul is making.  She starts out by telling a friend that she must have been on the moon because our music is still here.  Ms. Jody, you are so right!  Southern soul is going strong and, as she says, we're still strokin'!  We're still there and the new music is better than ever. More and more people are listening to it and the internet definitely increases that number.  This blog is even being read by interested soul southern fans from all over the world!  Still Strokin' is a great song from Ms. Jody's latest CD - I think this album is one of her best.

Boy, you must have been on the moon somewhere
Cause our kind of music is still here
And it ain’t going nowhere
You say you heard it’s not around
But you can find it in the cities and even in the small towns
You can’t believe what some folks say
It’s still here, it ain’t going away
You know I wouldn’t tell you nothing wrong
Good soul music it sho ain’t gone

Cause Clarence Carter's still stroking
And Bobby Rush is still wearing it out
Theodis Ealey is still standing up in it
And Ms. Jody is still in the house
And Mel Waiters still got his whiskey
And Bobby Womack, still looking for a love
And Denise says that she’s still trapped ya’ll
And Sheba just keeps on backing it up

You say you heard that it’s all over now
But even after all these years
We ain’t stroked out
What we started just can’t be stopped
The music keeps on going
And we're gonna bop till we drop
I told my friend to give it a try
Now she won’t stop till the day she dies
It’s more fun than you’ll ever get
We’ve been doing it for years and we ain’t through yet


Still strokin'
We’re still strokin'
We're still strokin'
We're still strokin'

If you can still make it do what it do
If you’re missing out you can’t blame nobody but you
It ain’t no excuse for sitting home alone
When you could still be out there getting it on


Southern soul is still strokin'!!!
