While working on my online classes I teach and on my tax preparation, I heard a Son Volt song on my Americana Cable station I like to listen to. The song was okay, but as always happens when I hear any Son Volt song, I thought of my favorite song of his and decided to post the lyrics. Songs are often personal turning points, and I’m sure this song was a spark for my interest in the saints and their involvement in or distance from the life of the individual artist. Jay Farrar (of Uncle Tupelo fame) has a voice that deeply resonates in the heart of many. Anyway, here is a transcription of the song I found on the Web somewhere a while back. If I got any of the lyrics wrong, please let me know.
