Done Come Too Far CD


PRE-ORDER BEFORE THE AUGUST 19 RELEASE DATE AND THE FIRST 300 WILL RECEIVE AN AUTOGRAPHED COPY

ALSO AVAILABLE ON CLEAR VINYL LP

Done Come Too Far continues Shemekia’s riveting, clear-eyed testimony about our troubled world while celebrating the blessings that keep hope alive. The new album is again produced by Will Kimbrough, and an all-star supporting cast includes slide guitar whiz Sonny Landreth, Hill Country blues great Cedric Burnside and Hi Rhythm Section organist Charles Hodges.  Shemekia’s rousing vocals bring the heat in an infectious array of muscular rockers, stomping blues, swampy soul and heartbreaking ballads.  Intense, topical new originals make up most of the tracks and spirited versions of songs by Ray Wylie Hubbard and her father, Johnny Copeland, fit right into the mix.  “She’s in such control of her voice that she can scream at injustices before she soothes with loving hope. It sends shivers up your spine.” –Living Blues

1. Too Far To Be Gone (feat. Sonny Landreth) 3:47

(John Hahn - Will Kimbrough)

A SMALL THING LIKE A SEAT ON THE BUS,
CHANGED LIFE FOR THE REST OF US.
A TINY WOMAN THAT YOU NEVER MET,
PUT US ON THE ROAD, BUT WE AIN'T THERE YET.
HER BRAVE SOUL IS LONG GONE,
BUT HER SPIRIT'S MARCHING ON.

WE DONE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE,
COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE.
IF YOU THINK WE'RE STOPPING, YOU GOT IT WRONG.
WE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE.

HAND IN HAND, YOURS AND MINE,
IT'S GOD'S LOVE ON THE LINE.
NOW WE'RE MILES FROM OUR FIRST STEPS,
BOUT AS TIRED AS YOU CAN GET.
BUT AS SURE AS DAY TURNS NIGHT,
WE'LL KEEP MOVING TIL WE MAKE IT RIGHT.

WE DONE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE,
COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE.
IF YOU THINK WE'RE STOPPING, YOU GOT IT WRONG,
WE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE.

SAW YOU IN SELMA AND BIRMINGHAM,
MARCHING TOGETHER TO THE GLORYLAND.
STANDIN' PROUD NEVER STUMBLED ALL THROUGH THE DAILY STRUGGLE
MAKING GOOD TROUBLE, JUST TO KEEP MOVING ON.

THOUGHT WE WERE SILENCED AT THE LORRIANE,
BUT THAT VOICE DIDN'T DIE IN VAIN.
ITS ECHO RINGS LIKE NO OTHER,
FOR EVERY SISTER AND EVERY BROTHER.
THOUGH MANY ARE GONE, THEIR SPIRIT STILL SCREAM,
YOU CAN KILL A MAN, BUT NOT A DREAM.

WE DONE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE,
COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE.
IF YOU THINK WE'RE STOPPING, YOU GOT IT WRONG,
WE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE.
DONE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE,
WE COME TOO FAR TO BE GONE.
IF YOU THINK WE'RE STOPPING, YOU GOT IT WRONG
WE COME TOO FAR
WAY TOO FAR
TOO FAR TO BE GONE.
