From the recording Live from the Jam Dept. Studio!

Feeling inspired by Santana's Soul Sacrifice, Bob conceived of and wrote most of this song (with some mainly lyrical input from Dana) while staying in a cabin on an island in Squam Lake, NH. This version is from a studio jam with Irem Ayan on bass, Curtis Kendrick on keys, and Mitch MItchell on drums--the same magical afternoon that produced the band's first single, Enjoy the Ride (Extended Version).

Lyrics

Mystic Mama puts the sun in the sky
That mystic lovin’ gets me so high
Mystic Mama knows me so well
She’s got me right under her spell

That mystic love is like a cool mountain stream
Go with the flow, she says, I’ll make you scream
Mystic Mama knows me so well
She’s got me right under her spell

SOLO

Mystic Mama comes for me
That mystic lovin’ just sets me free
Mystic Mama knows me so well
She’s got me right under her spell

SOLO

Mystic Mama comes for me
That mystic lovin’ just sets me free
Mystic Mama knows me so well
She’s got me right under her spell
