My Morning Jacket “Victory Dance” on Austin City Limits


(audience cheering and applauding) (spacey electronic tones) (cymbals shimmering lightly) (audience cheering) (moves into spacey electronic rock music) ♫ Make make make love ♫ Let let let love ♫ Let let let love ♫ Make make make love ♫ Should I close my eyes and prophesize ♫ Hoping maybe some day come ♫ Wet the ground with my own tears ♫ Crying over what’s been done ♫ Should I lift the
dirt and plant the seed ♫ Even though I’ll never grow ♫ Should I wet the ground
with the sweat from my brow ♫ And believe in my good work ♫ My good work ♫ My good work ♫ My good work (moves into thumping
electronic rock music) ♫ Hey there ♫ I’m flying up above ♫ Looking down on the tired earth ♫ And I can see ♫ I can see potential ♫ Speaking through ♫ Speaking through you ♫ From all of heaven’s possibilities ♫ Power, do you know how it works ♫ Do you know that the meek ♫ They shall inherit the earth ♫ You should work ♫ You should work ♫ Yeah for the summer and the memory ♫ Let let let love ♫ Let let let love ♫ Make make make love ♫ Make make make love ♫ Should I hit the water
or stay on dry land ♫ Even though I’ve never swam ♫ Take machete to the brush ♫ Though at first there is no path ♫ Taste the war paint on my tongue ♫ As it’s dripping with my scent ♫ Place my gaze in the future’s path ♫ Seeing things that ain’t come yet ♫ Hope to watch the victory dance ♫ After the day’s work is done ♫ Hope to watch the victory dance ♫ In the evening’s setting sun ♫ Hope to watch the victory dance ♫ Over many lives to come ♫ Hope to watch the victory dance ♫ In the evening’s setting sun ♫ Setting sun ♫ Setting sun ♫ Setting sun ♫ Hope to dance the victory dance ♫ After the day’s work is done ♫ Hope to dance the victory dance ♫ In the the evening’s setting sun ♫ Hope to dance the victory dance ♫ Over many lives to come ♫ Hope to dance the victory dance ♫ In the evening’s setting sun ♫ Setting sun (yelps) (moves into electric guitar solo) (chanting over crescendo
of electronic rock music) (chanting) (chanting) (howling over cymbals) (guitar feedback over
rock music fading out) (audience cheering and applauding loudly)

  1. They should put this out on DVD, especially the entire concert (I imagine there was quite a bit un-aired, since their portion ran less than 25 minutes)! I guarantee I'd buy it!

  2. Watchin this after 7 years… and it’s just as dope as the night I was in the crowd… my buddy Matt leans over as the molly was takin hold, and says “I could use a box of those Jim James towels right about now.” Then realized he lost our bag of weed
