Walk Until I Ride non è da meno, come ospite troviamo Jerry Douglas ad una sinuosa lap steel, e la canzone, chiaramente ispirata da quelle degli Staple Singers, anche per l’uso di elementi gospel nei cori e il gran finale emozionante , tratta l’argomento dei diritti civili, sempre di attualità anche nell’America di oggi, e che voce, Mavis sono sicuro che approverà.

dalla recensione di Bruno Conti
Heavens opened up
Rain pourin' from the sky
My arm in the air
Tryin' to flag a ride
But the cabs don't go
To my part of town
They just passed me by
Not even slowin' down

So I'm gonna walk
Until I ride
I'm gonna keep my head held high
They can try to take my freedom
They can't take my pride
I'm gonna walk, walk, walk
Until I ride

Four in the mornin
My baby child was cryin'
Fever he had
Kept on burnin' higher
Grabbed the phone
Dialed 911
When I told them where I lived
I knew they wouldn't come

So I'm gonna walk
Until I ride
Keep my head held way high
Take my freedom
Take my pride
I'm gonna walk, walk, walk
Until I ride

We're walkin' for the poor and unemployed
The hopeless and the hungry and those who have no joy
We're walkin' for the refugees and those who have no home
For every single livin' soul who feels all alone
We're gonna walk

If you ever stumble
Reach out and take my hand
We're in this life together
Til we reach the promised land

We're gonna keep on walkin
'Til our shoes wear out
Until we reach salvation
And you can hear us shout

We gonna walk
Until we ride
Keep our head, held way high
Take our freedom
Take our pride
But we gonna walk, walk, walk
Until we ride
We gonna walk, walk, walk

I'm gonna walk
Until I ride
Keep my head held way high
Take my freedom
Take my pride
I'm gonna walk, walk, walk
Until I ride

I'm gonna walk
Until I ride
Keep my head, held way high
Take my freedom
Can't take my pride
I'm gonna walk, walk, walk
Until I ride
I'm gonna walk, walk, walk
Until I ride
I'm gonna walk, walk, walk
Until I ride
