Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)
The day you came
Naked, afraid
Young mother screams and pushes you
The day you came
Oh joy begin
Weak little thing
More precious there’ll be nothing, no
Oh joy begin
Let’s not forget these early days
Remember we begin the same
We lose our way in fear and pain
Oh joy begin
First just one step
One word and then
With laughter sing, oh life begin
First just one step
Let’s not forget these early days
Remembering we began the same
We lose our way in fear and pain
Oh joy begin
Innocent kiss
Black magic bliss
First broken bone
Sudden and swift
Oh innocence
Let’s not forget these early days
Remember we begin the same
We lose our way in fear and pain
Oh joy begin
Oh joy begin

  • First time i heard this was in 2016 in VA Beach. It's become a top 15 favorite for me. Carter has such great rhythm.

  • I saw this song in concert last summer, DMB 2018 tour, they played at the gorge

  • I listen to Dave Matthews Band now makes me feel my age i remember driving to high school jamming DMB

  • Beautiful just beautiful song

  • Such a beautiful song. Amazing.

  • Best song I have heard in a long time. Great Job Dave Mathews Band!

  • Heard it on Ellen show love it

  • This song makes me think of my wonderful daughter and makes me want to cry. Beautiful.

  • Never a disappointment! Been loving DMB before the turn of the 2000’s!

  • This is one of the best DMB songs I have ever heard. I was afraid DMB was gone, that it was starting to end. When I heard this song I knew DMB never went anywhere but up. Absolutely beautiful, thank you.

  • I'm here because my best friend liked DMB. I didn't really know that a DMB existed...not until I recognized the song 'Ants Marching' from the radio played in the school bus. I can't help but remember that time period...the bus driver named Penny in her late 20's who rested her LONG legs in 'Daisy Duke' shorts on the dashboard. I was always first on the bus to get the hell out of school. Anyway, my best friend died 5 years ago to complications of neurofibromatosis. I am forever grateful I found my brother and discovered some of the best music I've ever heard. Thank you Dave Mathews and band, you brought more joy to my friend in pain then you'll ever know.

  • Not a damn word about why it's called samurai cop

  • I love this song, lets make a change. Lets be joyous. God bless Thankyou Dave

  • First grandchild born 3-10-18, makes this song so much sweeter to me

  • Thanks for not starting them off on That Girl is You. :-)

  • this album is fire

  • What does it mean to you all when he says “we lose our way in fear and hate/pain”?

  • This song brings tears to my eyes as I think of my newborn daughter. “Oh joy begin” hits the nail on the head.

  • Se la rifan.

  • reminds me of one big holiday by mmj

  • great stuff

  • My son was just born today, and I also just heard this song today. I can't even function right now I'm so overcome with emotions!

  • not only is ha a great artist he is a great human being and gives so much back to those that dream like he once did back in charlottesville va

  • Not a song yet I haven't loved!

  • The drums...I'm shook

  • I wish I could attend at least one concert of this wonderful band.

    • You won't regret it - they put on the best shows & you'll hopefully get to hear the classics that made them popular in the first place!

  • Amazing Song!! Greetings from Mexico.

  • It’s so easy to get lost in the melody and not even grasp the message of the lyrics. It’s such a beautiful mix of both. And it is just perfect for his voice. I was hesitant why it was the first song on the latest release but the more you listen to it especially after hearing it only live for years you understand why.

  • Song has nothing to do with the film of same name, 0/5 stars.

  • I heard the NPR Music tiny desk version first and that's my favorite.

  • Shoot! SHOOT HIM! Oh wait, wrong US-tv clip.

  • Dave Matthews is on the verge of being snubbed again for the Hall of zFame. His albums have beat Ms shits Gold Celine Dion, not to mention rappers like Kayne West, DMB fans shouldn’t stand for this horse-shit. I love Pearl Jam but Dave killed him both critically and commercial. There is no reason Dave shouldn’t be in the Hall. It sickens me to see a band that saved the music industry by showing them a model to make money without CD sales is being punished.

    • Hall of Fame is crap anyway. Hell, Queen didn’t even get in til recently. Freddie Mercury was not in the R&R hall of fame for the longest time.....let that sink in. Lol.

    • This year's the first time they're eligible for inclusion. Their music is incredible, but their business model, as you pointed out, is revolutionary and makes it possible for bands to survive and thrive on their own. I hope they go in on the first ballot, because they deserve it.

    • Drew Ostaszewski I’m pretty sure he isn’t even eligible until this year. Isn’t 25 years since first release the requirement?

  • 420 long dog

  • Pure Awesomeness One cannot top perfection...♥️♥️ I did not realize that I could love a song so much...

  • Just Dave and the boys..genius

  • This guy’s voice sounds like the late Chris Cornell.. makes me emotional every time I listen to it

  • Love the Baritone guitar tracks!

  • terrible song.

  • Damn these guys are good!! Nuf said.

  • This song is awesome in all ways.

  • Love this song and the live versions too. Proud of DMB throughout the years. They have evolved their music and are still my all time favorite band.

  • Such a wonderful song. My family are huge dm fans and my mom changed this to her mother son wedding dance at the last second when it was released

  • Instantly Historic

  • Does anyone know if that's Brandi Carlile saying "Hello" at the end?

  • Anyone else get a pearl jam vibe?

  • Anyone else getting king of leon vibes ?

  • such powerful lyrics enough to bring a tear to the eye. we love you dave and company never stop making the best of what’s around

  • Keep on rocking Dave!!!

  • Why isnt this more popular?

  • the same

  • Heard this on the radio and i could not believe what i was hearing 👀

  • Lo amo.

  • This song sucks

  • love this song

  • The version he did on Howard Stern is actually better than this cheesy studio version

  • Of course I’ve heard DMB throughout the years but this is the first time I’ve been moved by one of their songs.

    • Paula Hunt You’ve got it. The albums Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash, and Before These Crowded Streets are what are considered the “big three” and they are all excellent. If you have the time, you should listen to them ;) But if not, I have a few more song suggestions that are classics: #41 Warehouse Dancing Nancies The Best of What’s Around Satellite Tripping Billies Typical Situation Say Goodbye Two Step Rapunzel ;)

    • JakeGuitarist I have’t heard the songs you mention but now based on your recommendation I will check them out, thank you. I love to discover new artists/tunes.

    • Paula Hunt You should dive into their deeper cuts / non-radio-hits then. That’s where their best stuff is. Have you heard the song “Crush”? Or “Lover Lay Down”?

  • Beautiful lyrics and melody. Carter and Tim brings the song to a higher level

  • I woke up with this song in my head this morning after having a bizarre dream.

  • I get lost in this song. Beautiful

  • Oh Joy !! 🙂

  • Cant wait to hear this song live and all the others tonight... DMB kinda weekend!!!

  • See you at the Gorge this August !!!!

  • we went to the show at riverbend and a week later they sent us this CD thanks Dave

  • Maybe dave can bring rock back...

  • very talented!

  • I like this style more! Listen to the Temper Trap they have a slight similarity to the electric guitar plucks . Keep it up guys and it could be revival of DMB.

    • Memorable story but I was lucky enough to speak with Tim Reynolds over the phone, last I knew him residing in New Mexico, and it was over tips on guitar exercises. Even spoke briefly to his wife, both were very kind and genuine people. They eventually hooked up a comped ticket for myself and a friend when I was in Highschool. Couldn’t believe it! But I had the opportunity to attend Dave and Tim Reynolds show at an Arizona show. Thank u!

  • Sounds like something Kings of Leon would do

  • Falling in love with the new album. It's a beautiful and dirty sound. Thank you DMB!

  • i first heard DMB in 92 i said ,finally music has something new ....unlike any one who ever came before

  • I'm so very pleased! I knew it would be amazing and it is!! I put it on number one and just let it ride...Great job, guys!! ♥ I love you all! #DMBfolife

  • Performance on Jimmy Fallon is Amazing!!

  • FINALLY getting some AIRPLAY in ALBERTA . YAY #CKUA , streamed worldwide , community funded radio

  • Clearly copied off me multiple times. It makes me feel hopeless someone I idolize and someone who said I was like capitalized off me.

  • Amazing

  • Current classic, Carter is getting it!!

  • This song is more than awesome! Saw them on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Epic performance ❤️

  • Can't get enough of this song, but I MUST stop letting it make me cry before I see it live! New mom probs. hahaha

  • I like it better when it's sped up. Play it at 1.25x speed and it is more enjoyable.

  • I have seen dmb over 50 times. This album is pure and total garbage. I also stopped going to his shows because of his liberal bs politics. Typical liberal Boyd accused of sexual gay abuse. Leroy is dead. As far as I am concerned this band is way past over. Dave should tour solo because the band sucks.

  • This is the DBM I love! RIP Leroi.

  • Great fucking song. God i dig his lyrics

  • Love this song

  • There isn’t a song that touches my heart brings me back to the days my sons were born. I can feel the emotions all over again of first meeting them. Love u Jay and Hunt...what a wonderful journey! Thank you Dave for the beautiful music! Saw this live in Pa and Ohio. So touching! See you tomorrow in NH!

  • This song has been in my head for a few days and it doesn’t get old.

  • Literally crying. Thank you, thank you, thank you, DMB 🙏🏽

  • Who is spending Labor Dave Weekend at The Gorge???

  • If another Samurai Cop movie is made, this should be the theme song of it.

  • What a beautiful song. I smile every time I hear it!

  • I love this song. Especially the lines remember we begin the same we lose our way on fear and pain.

  • Just bought the album. AMAZING! 😃

  • Not a big DMB fan, but this is a good song.

  • So i listened through the album only once but the 4 songs that resonated with me were “Do You Remember”, “Come on Come on”, “Black and Blue Bird” and “Again and again”

  • Pure genius...been a fan for 24 years and this band has never failed to amaze me...bravo gentlemen and God bless you for sharing your artistry with the world.

  • Welcome back DMB this is a really good song the Dave Matthew's band has a unique sound which explains why they are so popular

  • Espectacular esta música !!! É mesmo soft para ouvir no Verão ou, em qualquer altura e lugar.

  • Why does he sounds like Chris Cornell?

  • Sounds like they are not keeping up with the tempo. Feels like the song is lagging.

  • New album is going to be tits can’t wait for Friday
