Laura Nyro – Stoned Soul Picnic (Demo version)

Can you surry?
Can you picnic?
Can you surry?
Can you picnic?

C’mon, c’mon and
Surry down to a stoned soul picnic
Surry down to a stoned soul picnic
There’ll be lots of time and wine
Red yellow honey
Sassafras and moonshine
Red yellow honey
Sassafras and moonshine
Stoned Soul
Stoned Soul

C’mon, c’mon and
Surry down to a stoned soul picnic
Surry down to a stoned soul picnic
Rain and sun come in akin
And from the sky
Come the Lord and the lightnin’
And from the sky
Come the Lord and the lightnin’
Stoned Soul
Stoned Soul

Watch here or below

Surry on surry
Surry, surry, surry, surry

There’ll be trains of blossoms
There’ll be trains of music
There’ll be music
There’ll be trains of trust
Trains of golden dust
Come along a surry oh
Sweet trains of thought
Surry on down
Can you surry?
Can you surry?

Surry down to a stoned soul picnic
Surry down to a stoned soul picnic
There’ll be lots of time and wine
Red yellow honey
Sassafras and moonshine
Red yellow honey
Sassafras and moonshine
Moonshine
Stoned Soul yeah

8 Genius Songs By Laura Nyro

Laura Nyro was a true original.

In a musical landscape that often bestows success on those who hew to established trends, she resolutely marched to her own drummer. Nyro created truly remarkable songs whose unique sound drew from a variety of genres, including jazz, pop, rock, soul, and show tunes.

Her fans include Todd Rundgren, Elton John, Rickie Lee Jones, Alice Cooper, and Elvis Costello. Her albums Eli and the Thirteenth Confession, New York Tendaberry, Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, and her collaboration with Labelle, Gonna Take A Miracle, are cited as bona fide classics by fans and critics alike.

Casual listeners probably know her best from hearing the hit records that were generated when artists like Blood, Sweat and Tears, The Fifth Dimension, Three Dog Night and Barbra Streisand recorded her songs. Here are a group of tunes that illustrate Laura’s incredible talent and unique gifts, as both a writer and performer.
