Morning Song – Coming Home

January 29, 2016

It takes a lot of nerve for a young songwriter to start off a song with “Baby, baby, baby…”, but Fort Worth native Leon Bridges pulls it off—unforced, heartfelt and believable.

On “Coming Home” Bridges sings sweet soul music like it’s 1963…and fills this video with images of him doing things* that could have gotten him killed in 1963.

History doesn’t repeat…but sometimes it rhymes.  When it does, it can be beautiful.

*Things like walking down the middle of the sidewalk staring straight into your eyes, drinking a cup of coffee at the counter of the local diner, and—most unforgivably—being with a white woman.
