Everyone Ought To Treat A Stranger Right

Just in from Ry Cooder

We had to wait six years for Ry Cooder to sing and produce again. It was worth it. An album for the turbulent 2018. It’s been too many years since he discovered The Buena Vista Social Club and changed the world music scene forever. Now the notion of the return of prodigal sons is timely and maybe, just maybe we can take it from a great old blues, slide guitar, multi-instrumentalist with an ear for a new sound and songs that rise to meet the times.

    LYRICS
    everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
    everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long ways from home
    be careful how you treat a stranger, by belying you turn him away
    but the fear that he might endanger will drive him from your gate

    chorus
    be mindful of your speaking, careful how you go along
    you must always treat a poor stranger right and accept him in your home
    chorus
    all of us down here are strangers, none of us have no home
    don’t ever hurt your brother and cause him to feel alone
    chorus
    everybody ought to treat a stranger right

Our Greek Chorus
Opinions of The Vigilant
The Greek chorus was an integral part of ancient Greek theatre, a group of three or four performers who looked alike and spoke all at the same time. Their part was to comment on what was being said and help the audience know what the characters in the play were thinking. The chorus usually sang, or spoke. We honor that tradition here

Prodigal Son"
