Phillip Gardner Cook “Great Tide” Lyrics

All your longing
All your pain
All your endings are gonna figure out the same
Board your window
Lock your door
Shits about to hit the fan, so you better hit the floor
Tie those nooses, face your beds
Ain’t no way you’re ever gonna settle all you’re debts
Rolling thunder, burning head
Aint you singin little dixie eye, but you’ve fallen down the well

Hey yeah
When you know
Hey yeah
Hey yeah
When you know
Hey yeah

Nothing’s secret
Nothing’s safe
Get your ass on the morning train or get the hell out the way
And anyway you’ll never be ready for the sound
Diggin out of that dixie cup when it all goes down

Hey yeah
When you know
Hey yeah
Hey yeah
When you know
Hey yeah

Gonna be a good time
With or without you home
Gonna be a good time
It’s gonna be a good time
With or without you home
It’s gonna be a good time
It’s gonna be a good time
With or without you home
It’s gonna be a good time

All your longing
All your pain
All your endings are gonna figure out the same

Hey yeah
When you know
Hey yeah
You know
Hey yeah
When you know
Hey yeah
You know
You know

Phillip Gardner Cook, also known as Phil Cook, is a guitar player from Durham, North Carolina. After years of playing as a sideman on albums with The Blind Boys of Alabama, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Matthew E. White (among others) he’s getting ready to release a debut solo album. Above you can listen to “Great Tide” from his official SoundCloud.

The song is rich with lush tones and a killer groove. Rhythmic changes between good old fashioned clapping / stomping and a New Orleans big drum beat make this tune more exciting than your average southern rock song. The soulful gospel sound is in perfect harmony with bluesy rock ‘n roll, a sure recipe for a good time.

Southland Mission is set to be released on September 11, 2015 through Thirty Tigers and Middle West. Pick it up on philcookmusic.com.

You can also stream Cook’s 2013 EP, This Side Up, on his Bandcamp. As you can hear, he’s come a long way in the last couple years.
