“Let’s Make a Baby King” reverently refers to Jesus as the answer to the world’s problems (“We need a Lord to guide us, to teach us wrong and right. And we need a lamb to lead us into the land of light”). “Rock Bottom” makes the hope-filled observation that “a dead-end street is just a place to turn around.” With sweet reflection reminiscent of her Judds hit, “Grandpa,” Wynonna revisits the home of her youth where “Cokes were just a nickel” (“I Just Drove By”). “Father Sun” decries empty, iconic religiosity and pleads for forgiveness and salvation from the One who “will be coming back.”
Whether singing about spiritual truth, girls and guitars, Elvis’ Cadillac or lamenting over love lost, Wynonna injects plenty of energy into her second solo effort. A lyrically solid collection.
