Alabama Shakes "Hold On" a solid #RockAndRoll sound #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Alabama Shakes - Hold On (1)


The best narrative is one of infinite love. A spiritual affair--one not of the material world. Intermingled, with no beginning nor end--it will always stand the test of time.” 
Terry A. O'Neal

Alabama Shakes is an American blues rock band from Athens, Alabama. The band consists of a powerful lead singer and guitarist Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, bassist Zac Cockrell, and drummer Steve Johnson. The song I am featuring this evening is titled "Hold On" (2).  It is brilliant!

A single released February 6, 2012, “Hold On” is the 1st track of their first album titled "Boys and Girls". Their genre is considered Southern Rock, Roots Rock, Blues Rock, Soul Garage Rock, and Soul Rock. Basically, Rock and Roll folks. Lol!

The music video was published on YouTube Mar 30, 2012, by Alabama Shakes.

"Hold On" (3)
Bless my heart,
Bless my soul,
Didn't think I'd make it to twenty-two years old.
There must be someone up above saying
Come on Brittany,
You got to come on up,
You got to hold on.
Yeah you got to hold on.

So, bless my heart and bless yours too,
I don't know where I'm gonna go,
Don't what what I'm gonna do.
Must be somebody up above saying come on Brittany,
You got to come on up!
You got to hold on.
Yeah you got to hold on.

Yeah, you got to wait,
Yeah, you got to wait,
But I don't wanna wait,
I don't wanna wait.

So, bless my heart,
Bless my mind,
I got so much to do,
I ain't got much time
So, must be someone up above
Saying come on girl,
You got to get back up.
You got to hold on.
Yeah you got to hold on.

Yeah, you got to wait,
I don't wanna wait.
Well I don't wanna wait,
No I don't wanna wait.

You got to hold on
You got to hold on
You've gotta hold on
You gotta hold on

Have a great evening!

Peace Diana

Lets Support Senator Wendy Davis for Texas Governor

I heard today that Governor Perry will not seek a fourth term. I am at a loss on whether this is cause for celebration or a quiet moment before the storm. This leaves the race wide open for Attorney General Greg Abbott on the republican side and who knows who will is be thrown out there for the democrats.

My experience with AG Abbott is simple, I had a deadbeat baby daddy, which I filed on and the case went on for years and was allowed to reach a deficit of over $50k. Case in point, Maricopa County, in Arizona, goes after irresponsible fathers after $1,000 deficit. My question for Mr. Abbott is how can we trust you will represent Texans with jurisprudence when, so for, your department has a horrible track record just bringing deadbeat dads to justice? I am just saying.

Altered "Save Texas Education"
A second problem is borne by the national folk in the Democratic Party. They neither want to invest in resources or political capital supporting any candidate for this state. It has been this way! So I am going to challenge the Dem’s to invest and participate in the Texas governor race and I ask, if you are a part the Democratic Party, that you demand this type of action as well.

So please let’s SAVE TEXAS!
Peace Diana
