Morning Song – Many Rivers To Cross

February 10, 2016

There is an irreducible core—call it faith, call it hope, call it determination, or (as the narrator calls it) “my pride“—at the heart of Jimmy Cliff’s “Many Rivers To Cross”.  He may be a lonely and despondent young (just 21) man, alone and far from home, heading to a distant and forbidding land (i.e., England) but somehow he retains the vision to see beyond his current obstacles to his future obstacles…and implicitly, the fact that he will overcome.

P. S. You know what you don’t see so much anymore? Jackets with 12″ buckskin fringe.
