Saw Steve Earle last night

It was the opening show for his North American tour, we had second row center seats. This self-described “pinko songwriter” transcends categories. Is he country, bluegrass, folk, or rock? Yes.

Singing Jerusalem at the Operation Ceasefire Concert in Washington DC on 9/24/2005

“I woke up this mornin’ and none of the news was good
And death machines were rumblin’ ‘cross the ground where Jesus stood
And the man on my TV told me that it had always been that way
And there was nothin’ anyone could do or say

And I almost listened to him
Yeah, I almost lost my mind
Then I regained my senses again
And looked into my heart to find

That I believe that one fine day all the children of Abraham
Will lay down their swords forever in Jerusalem”
