Noir Music | “Revolution” by Dr. John

Noir Music Dr John Revolution

Dr. John, “Locked Down” –My Copy Arrived Today

I first saw “Revolution” performed by Dr. John on Jimmy Fallon and needless to say I was seduced. Sexy horns, skanky guitar licks, Dan Auerbach, a top hat and a cane; the elements of amazing noir music.

“Let’s all just pray on it, right now.”


here are the lyrics (COMPLETE):

Blind eyes of justice,
Deaf ears of power.
Dumb moves of money
Left us in a desperate hour.
Economy
Connin’ me out of my sanity.

CHORUS:
Rebellious revolution.
Is this the final solution?

Hands in surrender,
Killed in they tracks.
Babies, women raped,
Leaders on they backs.
Religious delusions,
Stone confusion.

CHORUS:
Rebellious revolution.
Is this the final solution?

The proof of man’s insanity.
The truth of war’s inhumanity.

Let’s all just pray on it right now…

Guerilla warfare.
Lady liberty.
Propaganda.
Hypocrisy.
Did we lose our Constitution?

CHORUS:
Rebellious revolution.
Is this the final solution?

And if you want to be literally floored, here is the link to Dr. John’s performance on Jimmy Fallon:
