Here is a real American spiritual for the weekend – calm, confident, and full of swagger. Good for a long walk in the sun, an afternoon in a hammock, and an evening sitting on the front porch. Nothing ground the spirit like the blues. “I’m gonna leave this place better than the way I found it was.” Amen, brother.

And all this time I thought Tom Waits wrote it. Silly me. He’s good, but not THIS good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4mC40CXOAA
Haha. Silly me again. He DID write it. Damn, I knew he was good.
