Shambala

tj_live_1


Day 1 of our session for REWIND. Darryl and I, the early birds of the band, are making our morning coffee and he asks, “Hey Taylor, what do you wanna start with?” I said, “Shamabla!” He said, “ I was thinking the same thing!” Hence what set the tone for the record. For that week, Nashcroft Studios was definitely our Shambala.

Lyrics


Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain

With the rain in Shambala

Wash away my sorrow wash away my pain

With the rain in Shambala

Chorus:

Ah ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah X2

Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind

On the road to Shambala

Everyone is lucky everyone is so kind

On the road to Shambala

Chorus:

Ah ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah X2

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala X2

I can tell my sister, by the flowers in her eyes

On the road to Shambala

I can tell my brother by the flowers in his eyes

On the road to Shambala

Chorus:

Ah ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah X2

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala X4

Chorus:

Ah ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah X2

Ah ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah X2

Other versions

▪ Despite having two successful incarnations in the same year (one of which has remained a classic rock standard), few other artists have covered "Shambala". The cover recorded by Rockapella may be the most notable post-1973 version. South African musician Dr Victor recorded a dance version of "Shambala" that was a worldwide hit in 1994. The Skeptics also recorded a power pop version of the song on their 1994 CD, Be Satisfied. Country superstar Toby Keithissued a live recording of "Shambala" as a bonus track on the deluxe version of his 2011 album Clancy's Tavern.
