Around the corner, it's comin' 'round and 'round again Around the corner, it's coming 'round again(repeat) Through the steamy days of summer Autumn's winds and colors I hustled up through the winter Here come the longer days and shorter nights ummm, that's the way I like it That tick tock of the clock moves on and so must I Like Bob Marley and my father I believe everything is gonna be all right Yeah, it's gonna be all right now Chorus Happy June, Happy June I can't believe that you are back here so soon I hope every year from here gets better The 31st of May I got out as I was asked to I wished I could've cut my heart out, left it behind gift-wrapped and addressed to you Turns out I'm glad I kept it By June I spouted wings, explored something new By January I broke away from my old cage Time always has a way of healing wounds Yes, you know it's true, so true Chorus Instrumental verse Chorus Around the corner, it's comin, 'round and 'round again Around the corner, it's coming 'round again ©2010 G.

"Acoustic Live: At The Freight" is a 2-song recording production of Garrick Davis World Blues acoustic set performed for the John Lee Hooker Foundation Benefit Concert which took place at Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, CA. on June 14, 2019.

I have been been involved within the organization by way of working with the students in the music program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, CA. Many of the students I am blessed to work with opened this star-studded multi-act show as an ensemble, I was proud to witness.

Following the high schoolers, I was joined yet again by the masterful tabla drummer Tanmay Bichu, who I began working with in 2016.
Tanmay has performed with me in different lineups of the World Blues configurations, including the full 8-piece as well as appearing on the "House Full of Friends"(2018) live album.

In this simple setting of guitar and tabla(often with piano) is where the combination really shines as you will hear for yourself. Thanks to Lou Judson for releasing this recording to me so I can bring it to the public. It is very clear, dynamic and punchy!

I look forward to recording a full album with him someday, which will display more of the improvisation wonderment that comes out when given the time and space.

As in keeping with the spirit of the "benefit event", the John Lee Hooker Foundation will receive 10% of sales from the sale of this production through August 31, 2020.
