“Joy Ride” was debuted in the summer of 2004. It was recorded for the “Stand Up” album, but it was ultimately left to be released
as a B-side. It is in the pattern of the other 2004 politically driven songs.
C'mon, C'mon All y'all
If we get it right
We're gonna eat the world
If you got a question
Just get in line
Cuz my intentions
Are to make you mine
I'll take care of everything
And all you need friend is right here
Oh, If you're lost
I got a bobble-head Jesus
It only costs you
To get on your knees
But money is clean
Cuz we scrub it good
With guns and gasoline
We're gonna save the world
Nothing's obscene
If we only close our eyes
Boys and girls Welcome to this, Joyride
C'mon All y'all
Listen up
And we're gonna steal the world
Now if you're lost
I got a bobble-head Buddha
Legs crossed But is in the groove
But money is clean And we scrub it good
With guns and gasoline We're gonna save the world
Nothing's obscene
If we only close our eyes
Boys and girls
Welcome to this Joyride
It's a joyride, This joyride, It's a joyride
If you're confused
If you're unsure
Be sure of this
We'll use you well
And if you're lost
I will find your way
Give me a soul friend
It's okay
Yes, yes, yes
Everything's playing out
Yes, yes, yes
Everything's playing out
Huh, huh, yeah
Kick off, kick off
Shoo, shoo
And get in line
You could get in
Oh, oh
Light up, light up
We're goin'
But money is clean
And we scrub it good
With guns and gasoline
We're gonna save the world
Nothing's obscene
If we only close our eyes
Boys and girls
Welcome to this
Joyride
Yes a joyride
In this joyride
It's a joyride

JTR

"JTR" is a song by Dave Matthews Band off of their unreleased album, The Lillywhite Sessions. The song originated from "John the
Revelator," a song written by Dave Matthews with the help from Carlos Santana. Matthews and Santana wrote "John the Revelator"
as a love song about someone calling out to their unattainable lover. The "John the Revelator" lines that originally appeared in the
song were suggested by Santana who got the idea from the traditional gospel song of the same name. "JTR" began as "John the
Revelator," which first appeared live as a tease played twice during a show on November 30, 1998. Afterwards, the song was played
in full a total five times – twice in acoustic set by Matthews and Tim Reynolds, and three times with the full band and various guests,
such as The Lovely Ladies, Béla Fleck, and the band Santana. After its final performance in May 1999, the song was taken to the
recording studio with producer Steve Lillywhite in the beginning of 2000. The band reworked "John the Revelator" by changing a few
chords, and most notably, dropping a portion of the chorus, which contained the following verse:

“Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seas”

Since the title's line was dropped from the lyrics, the band renamed the song to "JTR" and recorded it for the album which eventually
became leaked on the internet as The Lillywhite Sessions. Although the band never officially released the song, "JTR" began showing
in live setlists on the band's summer tour in 2000. The song became popular among fans and was played live during many shows up
until the end of the summer tour in 2001, following the release of Everday. A performance of the song was recorded for the live
album and video, Live at Folsom Field, Boulder, Colorado, along with many songs from Everyday. In 2002, Dave Matthews Band
went back into the recording studio to rerecord the songs for their album Busted Stuff, which previously leaked out as The Lillywhite
Sessions. According to producer Stephen Harris, "JTR" was abandoned very early in the studio, and therefore did not appear on the
album. Following the recording sessions, the song was no longer played live, except for a small tease during a show in 2003. In an
interview in July 2004, bassist Stefan Lessard claimed that the band agreed that they did not like "JTR," and that it would probably
never be played again. "For one reason or another, [JTR] wasn't feeling right with us. So there was no reason to keep playing it—it
has to feel right for us. So that one particular song, I mean—I'd be surprised if we bring that song out again."—Stefan Lessard
Despite Lessard's comment about the band's feeling towards the song in 2004, "JTR" was once again played live for the first time in
over five years during an encore at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, about one month before the band's summer tour in
2006. The performance was a surprise to many fans who thought the song would never again be played, especially after the
comment made by Lessard two years earlier. The song was once again brought back to setlists and was played 17 times during the
tour with guest Rashawn Ross, including one performance where it was the opening song. In response to many fans' comments
about how Lessard claimed the song was dead, Lessard posted a bulletin on his MySpace page saying that he didn't recall saying so,
and he was most likely being sarcastic if he did.

I drink you up
For every drop of you is sacred, every drop I drink you up
You fill my cup
The way you laugh, eyes of a child, lean on me, you fill me up
You make me love
So unconditionally
generous to me
You give me love
And break my heart
Slip you fall I’ll pick you up and dust you off
You break my heart
Rain, rain, rain down on me
Again and again
Rain down on me
Take all you want
For what is mine is yours, no better use is there for what I’ve got
Take all you want
And only hope can I, you won’t deny your love for me my love
No don’t cry, if it’s too high
I’ll lift you up we’ll
Make it make it
When I was oh so tired
You come along to wake me wake me
Time and time again and again with a smile you save me child
Oh, oh, oh
Rain, rain, rain down on me
Again and again
Rain down on me
Look--we play our cards
And I question by the grace of what we play our cards at all.
Come fill me up
Oh fill me love when I’m empty, when I’m all dried up
No don’t cry, if it’s too high I’ll lift you up
we’ll make it make it
Up, I was so so tired
You come along
To wake me, wake me
Time and time again and again
With a smile you save me child
Oh, oh, oh
Rain, rain, rain down on me
Again and again
Rain down on me
Rain, rain, rain down on me
