My Soul is Rising too long tripping over shadows too long stumbling in fear too long listening to voices the lies have been ringing in my ear My soul is rising with the sun 2x now my spirit is awakened got the devil on the run too long worrying bout tomorrow too long dwelling in the past too long stressing over money and trying to make each dollar last My soul is rising with the sun 2x now my spirit is awakened got the devil on the run oh there's gonna be some changes oh there's gonna be some changes round here now my spirit has awakened and my soul is rising with the sun too long making my excuses too long holding onto pain to long hiding in the desert listening to myself complain My soul is rising with the sun 2x now my spirit is awakened got the devil on the run My Soul is Rising x2 With the Sun

More Than Enough When I'm cold you clothe me with the sun    When I thirst you pour out your rain  When I hunger you find ways to feed my soul You're more than enough .... For me When I'm lost it's you that I will find When I stumble it’s right into your arms when I forget who I am I'll see you in the mirror I like the story of the feeding five thousand Everybody had their fill and there was so much left over  When I hate it's you that will forgive when I'm guilty you carry all my shame when I'm broken you fill in the missing pieces

Mustard Seed it was only a mustard seed that I found a tiny mustard laying there on the ground and I used whatever could be found And I sowed that seed right here under the ground then the rain began to fall and I saw some green breaking through earth’s wall (Hmmm) and my mustard tree was soon quite tall and I wondered To myself would my garden be too small it was only a mustard seed that I found a tiny mustard laying there on the ground that something so small would richly abound I'm losing count of all the mustard trees around (here) Solo(s) get your hands on a mustard seed find some good soil then proceed step away and let the season intercede and soon you’ll have all the mustard you'll ever need Break All You Need X2 All You Need is a Mustard Seed X4 Ad lib... All You Need

River Child when you got no roots you get blown around like tumbleweed in an old ghost town you pray for a mercy wind to carry you down someplace by the river you can only run for so long trying to forget where you come from And then you hear that river song? Calling you home to the river cause you're a river child but your spirits dry the river feels your pain and hears your cry and it knows that your soul will surely die if you don't get back to the river if the water be wild or it be still go right in and drink your fill and let that river take you where it will you'll come alive in the river let that river take you where ever it will you were born in the river

I Pray It don't take much for me to get in trouble say something I will regret I've got a real sharp tongue It can wound anyone I struggle to forgive and forget so I pray (I Pray) for some mercy and through grace my eyes could see I pray for the day when I can love somebody the way that you love me yeah, the way that you love me (I pray yeah) It don't take much for me to judge a brother I can make sinner out of a saint but when I condemn the man I don't understand I reveal more of my own complaint It don't make much for me to gossip and slander and defame the name of some poor child yeah I'm shallow and I'm weak I got a real mean streak there's a longer list that you could compile It don't take much for me to be self righteous and look down my nose at everyone but I'm a poor disguise for the holy and wise a mere candle compared to the sun
6.
I’ve Been Knockin (Ooooh Knock Knock) I've been knocking, knocking on that door it goes unanswered like so many times before I know they hear me but they ignore me as if I don't exist in the world that they live in but I keep knocking, won't somebody let me in I met Jesus walking down my road we got to talking about this heavy load He done told me the same old story that he'd been knocking and no one let the good man in don't feel so bad now the company I'm in solo So I got to thinking this was not the place to be and maybe there were others feeling just a bit like me so we threw a party inviting Jesus and celebrating like we'd never done before if you come a knocking there's always room for one more if you come a knocking there's always room for one more Knock Knock..... Oooh... Knock Knock x 4 Won’t you come a knockin Oooh... Knock Knock Won’t you come a knockin
7.
Give it All Up Bring those heavy burdens and lay them at my feet and sit yourself down here on my mercy seat and let your weary soul come and lean on me you can stay here forever I so love your company you were never meant to be alone or try to make it in this world all on your own for you ….there ain't nothing that I wouldn't do for you…. every promise I will see it through I will lay it all down, my life and my crown I give it all up (x2) for you I understand rejection to be tainted with lies rarely feeling accepted often despised the ones that we love seem to hurt us more than others our sisters our brothers  our fathers our mothers but you were never meant to be alone or try to make it in this world all on your own Ch well before the breaking of the dawn I had my eye on you waiting for the day that you were born so I could spend the rest of my days (x2) with you
8.
Who's Gonna Stand who's gonna stand with me on this bridge tonight I'm calling out to brother and sister to stand up and fight if there's one thing from history we should have learned that if we don’t make this stand together this bridge may burn who’s gonna stand who’s gonna stand who’s gonna stand  with me (here) tonight some say that I be crazy for misreading the signs can’t you hear the beating of the drums from the enemy lines  the time for lofty words and shaking fists has come and gone take up your sword and shield for the battle lines have been drawn for all your sons and all your daughters for all that you hold dear would you lay your life down or lock your doors and hide away in fear who's gonna stand with me on this bridge tonight I swear you will regret the day you didn't stand and fight for when we stand together we be more than flesh and bone when our spirits are united we don't have to stand alone
9.
You Got Wings just as clouds precede the rain where there's trouble there will soon be pain but if you run or try to hide away you will only suffer without the gain for a seed to grow it first must die soon it's breaking through to touch the sky As you learn to wait through the longest night you'll begin to see in a whole new light and that you got wings… to fly some say they're free while their minds are bound so xxx lost in religion they can't be found but you're breaking loose from the tightly wound and you're finding your way on Holy Ground you got wings… to fly Wings... Wings... Wings... to Fly... deep in your soul you know this song when you think you are weak you are really strong and guilt and shame well they just don't belong keep your eyes on Him and you can't go wrong you got wings… to fly Break: Ad lib: Fly High… wings… Learn to Wait through the longest night Begin to See in a whole new light You Got it 4x Fly..... x4

I Am a Tree I am a tree high up on a mountain I am a tree high up on a mountain waiting for the wind to blow through me waiting for the wind to blow through me I am rock high up on a mountain I am a rock way up on a mountain I'm waiting for the wind to move my soul I'm waiting for the wind to move my soul Cause I have a song, I have a song and it's been too long inside of me I got the rhythm and melody come on wind won't you blow through me I am a boat way out on the ocean I am a boat way out on the ocean waiting for the wind to fill my sails waiting for the wind to fill my sails I am a bird nestled in the tree tops I am a bird high up on the tree tops waiting for the wind to carry me waiting for the wind to carry me I am a child resting with my father I am a child resting with my father waiting for the wind to carry me waiting for the wind to carry me

about

You Got Wings is a collaborative project featuring Chris Falson, Linda McCrary, David Raven, Alfie Silas, Pattie Howard, Vonciele Fagget, Angela Williams, Chuck Heat, Jamie McCrary, Charity McCrary, Rondez Rolle, Sandra Stephens, Sam Sparro, James Bowen, John Schreiner, Danny Ybarra, Jonathan Flaugher,  and Tony Green and a truly amazing gospel choir that has performed and recorded with Beyonce, John Legend, Elton John, Andre Crouch and many more.

Our ‘eclectic sound’ emanates from a shared background in Soul, R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel and Worship music.

We are young, old, black, white and various colors in between. We are hip, old school, we can funk it up, lay it down, celebrate or chill. We can make you wanna dance or lead you to your knees to pray. Our songs tell of our own journeys over the many rocky mountains, across the troubled waters and through the desert valleys, in both suffering and joy, through trials or in victory we are fearless. We have nothing to hide or of which to be ashamed. We are, who we are. We are Rhythm Gospel & Blues.
