Higher Ground (Stevie Wonder)

Higher Ground” is a funk song written by Stevie Wonder and first appearing on his 1973 album Innervisions. The song reached #4 on the U.S. Pop Singles chart and #1 on the U.S. Hot Soul Singles chart.[1] Wonder wrote and recorded the song in a three-hour burst of creativity in May 1973.[2] The album version of the song contains an extra verse and runs 30 seconds longer than the single version. The unique wah-Clavinet sound in the song was achieved with a Mu-tron III envelope filter pedal. The bass is a Moog synthesizer. Via overdubs, Wonder played all instruments on the track, including drums.

Till I reach my highest ground
No one’s gonna bring me down, Oh no
Till I reach my highest ground
Don’t you let nobody bring you down (they’ll sho ’nuff try)
God is gonna show you higher ground
He’s the only friend you have around
