High theology

Friday's posts over at In The Clearing are devoted to only the finest theology. The Doe-See-Doe consistently provides the deepest insight into God and spiritual life that I can find. Painstaking research and hours of meditative transcendence go into discovering what is presented there. Today's theological titans are Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. You should check out their videos, or better yet, just go see them live.

Scroll back on In The Clearing to find past videos of theological prodigy such as Old Crow Medicine Show and John Prine. Here's a long list of them all on one easy to access page.

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long.

I went across the river, and I lay down to sleep,
I went across the river, and I lay down to sleep,
When I woke up with the shackles on my feet.

Twenty-nine links of chain around my leg,
Twenty-nine links of chain around my leg,
And on each link is initial of my name.

I asked the judge what might be my fine,
I asked the judge what might be my fine,
"Twenty-one years on the Rocky Mountain line."

The train arrived, sixteen coaches long,
The train arrived, sixteen coaches long,
The girl I love is on that train and gone.

If any one asks you who composed this song,
If any one asks you who composed this song,
Tell him it was I and I sing it all day long.
