Eh Hee (Lyrics)

Introduced in 2006 during the Dave Matthews solo shows and teased a few other times. Originally spelled "Ayhee" on dmband.com setlists and on the setlist for 5.12.06, until 04.22.07 at Radio City Music Hall with Tim Reynolds and was written as "Eh Hee" on the setlist.


Eh Hee debuted on the 2006 Dave and Friends cruise. Dave played it by himself a few months later before retiring it (save a couple of teases) for almost a year, when he played it with Tim on 4.22.07. It appeared again on 8.18.07 as a full DMB song.

A music video for a studio version of the song was released on iTunes on 9.4.07, with all of the instruments played by Dave.

[chant]

praise god who have many names
but the devil have many more
with the love that my mother gave me
i'm gonna drop the devil to the floor
i'm gonna drop the devil to his knees
drop the devil to his knees

hide when there's someone
that try to convince you
that they have the answer
no matter the question
be wary of those that believe
in a neat little world
'cause it's just fucking crazy
you know that it is

[chant]

walking along in the haze of confusion
sometimes i can laugh
but sometimes it takes all of my strength
just to find enough reason
to take the next step
step but i will
but i will till i do

[chant]
somebody gonna save the world
somebody gonna save the world

brother sister
brother sister
brother sister
brother sister
praise god for he has many names
but the devil have many more
and with the love that my mother gave me
i'm gonna drop the devil to the floor
i'm gonna drop the devil to his knees
i'm gonna drop the devil to his knees

strange evolution
how people have come to believe
that we are its greatest achievement
when really we're just a collection of cells
overrating themselves
hello god i'm avoiding the truth

[chant]
somebody gonna save the world

drop the devil to his knees
drop the devil to his knees
