Motivational Music: Martin Sexton’s Black Sheep

Every Sunday I make a habit of listening to the Mountain Stage program on my local public radio station 88.5 XPN.  I always end up becoming a fan of an artist that I had never heard of before.  This past week was a really great show.  I was blown away by Ruthie Foster. (Be careful, music is on autoplay and loud when you click the link.) What an incredible voice and talent!  I love soulful singers.  This last Sunday’s show was packed with them.  The other artist that blew my mind (You’ve got to listen to this Mountain Stage show!) was Martin Sexton.  This guy is awesome!

His song Black Sheep really moved me.  It reminded me of the struggle that we face as entrepreneurs, chasing our dreams, following our heart and not always getting the support that we would like.  Martin really sang to me on this one, so I wanted to share it.  The video isn’t crystal clear, but the audio is the clearest out of the performances that I could find on YouTube.  Let me know what you think of this song.  I’ve posted the words below the video.  You can buy Martin Sexton’s music on iTunes by clicking here.


Black Sheep

Sittin in this lonely town wonderin when things are gonna change
Dreamin my life away and it seems them dreams they turned into a bunch of dust clouds
Gettin my nerve up but my past is pullin me down
Wonderin how long this black sheep can stick around

Somebody told me once before
You can never go home again once you leave
Say anything just to steer me away from the truth of  who I am and what I believe
So I thanked him for his two cents
With a shake and some sympathy
And I packed up my blue jeans and I headed for the big prize
Of my freedom

Bye bye black sheep
Black sheep of the family
Bye bye black sheep how that means so much to me
Bye bye to my friends and to my family
Bye bye black sheep goin off and set my soul set it free

Times they were changin I did just a little re-arrangin
Take a couple chances my progress it advances
To that prize of my freedom

It’s written in the stars that steel bars never will a prison cell make
Once I find that sweet home or a place I like to call home anyway
Some people will say I’m crazy singin out loud like I do here on the street
When I got A song I sing it out loud and if you don’t like that my friend
Well I’m gonna say to you

Bye bye black sheep
Black sheep of the family
Bye bye black sheep how that means so much to me
Bye bye to my friends and to my family
Bye bye black sheep goin off and set my soul set it free
