In modern music, there's not a whole lot I connect with, but then someone like Sturgill Simpson will knock me out. - Joan Baez

Turtles all the Way Down

Call to Arms (Live SNL)

Turtles all the way Down

I've seen Jesus play with flames in a lake of fire that I was standing in
Met the devil in Seattle and spent 9 months inside the lion's den
Met Buddha yet another time and he showed me a glowing light within
But I swear that God is there every time I glare into the eyes of my best friend
Says my son it's all been done and someday your gonna wake up old and gray
So go and try to have some fun showing warmth to everyone
You meet and greet and cheat along the way

There's a gateway in our mind that leads somewhere out there far beyond this plane
Where reptile aliens made of light cut you open and pull out all your pain
Tell me how you make illegal something that we all make in our brain
Some say you might go crazy but then again it might make you go sane

Every time I take a look inside that old and fabled book
I'm blinded and reminded of the pain caused by some old man in the sky
Marijuana, LSD, Psilocybin, and DMT
They all changed the way I see
But love's the only thing that ever saved my life

So don't waste your mind on nursery rhymes
Or fairy tales of blood and wine
It's turtles all the way down the line
So to each their own til' we go home
To other realms our souls must roam
To and through the myth that we all call space and time

It ain't all Flowers

Metamodern Sounds in Country Music by Sturgill Simpson and Traveller by Chris Stapleton are the best of country music by new-ish artists. Both have released another album each after these but I have not heard them.

Hello Kush,

I have been meaning to reply to this post of yours for a while and I have finally got round to doing so. I had never heard of Sturgill Simpson before but I really enjoyed his songs. The live clip was exceptional. Thanks for bringing him to notice.

You are welcome, Tony. I don't have the A Sailor's Guide to Earth album yet, from which the Live track come from, but will get it in the not too distant future. This is the era of music overload - I long for the days when my entire music collection consisted of about 12-14 albums :)
I loved the comment someone made on the Live clip youtube channel "No idea wtf he's singing about, but I believe him!"

Chris Stapleton is pretty awesome too...
