TobyMac - Promised Land (ft. Sheryl Crow) (Collab OG) Lyrics + Mp3 Download

TobyMac - Promised Land (ft.Sheryl Crow) (Collab OG)

As the fourth single released since the 2018 studio album The Elements and the 2020 demo EP The Lost Demos, “Promised Land” is inspired by McKeehan’s grandfather, a former Wyoming County miner who died of Black Lung disease. 

Because of this, he shot the music video in his grandfather’s hometown of Glen Rogers as well as the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine. In the song, McKeehan pairs this imagery with the Promised Land of the Bible, the land God made the Israelites wait over 400 years to enter, most of which was spent in slavery.

 McKeehan parallels both of these examples with his own journey in life, using a slow, ballad-like song to tell the story of his time over the years in the music business without forgetting about God and his family and fans.


TobyMac - Promised Land (ft. Sheryl Crow) (Collab OG) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Head down as I punch this clock
The hours roll, they never stop
And I can't ever seem to get ahead
Always tryin' to do what's right
Straight and narrow's gettin' tight
Don't know how much longer I can stand

[Chorus 1]
And I'm wonderin'
Yeah, I'm wonderin'
Where's my promised land?

[Verse 2]
Out here on this desert road
It's hot as fire but I've grown cold
Circlin' like a plane that never lands
And even though the questions change
The answers always stay the same
Maybe someday I will understand

[Chorus 2]
So I'm wonderin'
Got me wonderin'
Where's my promised land?
Yeah, I'm wonderin'
Still I'm wonderin'
Where's my promised land?

[Bridge]
Well, I've run this Earth for many years
If there's one thing I know
There's nowhere on this side o' Heaven
Where streets are made o' gold
I've long laid down my grand illusions
Lookin' toward the day that I'll be home

[Verse 3]
I won't give up on this race
Broken but I still have faith
That this old life is all part of a plan
And I can feel it in my soul
One day, I'll stand before the throne
With nothin' left but hope in these two hands

[Chorus 3]
Through all these seasons
I'm still believin'
You're my promised land
In all my grievin'
I'm still believin'
You're my promised land

[Outro]
You're my promised land
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh, ooh ooh ooh-ooh
My promised land
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh, ooh ooh ooh-ooh
Ah ah
Ooh ooh-ooh, ooh ooh ooh-ooh
Oh oh-oh, oh oh-oh
Ooh ooh-ooh
You're my promised land
