Lost in my Mind

Put your dreams away for now
I won’t see you for some time
I am lost in my mind
I get lost in my mind

Momma once told me
You’re already home where you feel love
I am lost in my mind
I get lost in my mind

Oh my brother
Your wisdom is all that I need
Oh my brother
Don’t you worry ‘bout me
Don’t you worry
Don’t you worry
Don’t worry about me

How’s that bricklayin’ coming 
How’s your engine running
Is that bridge getting built
Are your hands getting filled

Won’t you tell me my brother
Cause there are stars up above
We can start moving forward

How’s that bricklayin’ coming 
How’s your engine running
Is that bridge getting built
Are your hands getting filled

Won’t you tell me my brother
Cause there are stars up above
We can start moving forward

Lost in my mind
Lost in my mind
Oh I get Lost in my mind
Lost, I get lost, I get lost in my mind
Lost in my mind
Yes I get lost in my mind
Lost, I get lost, I get lost
Oh I get lost
Oh I get

The Harrow & The Harvest is further proof that Gillian Welch is the John Steinbeck of American folk music. When it comes to illustrating the present in pictures of the past few living singer-songwriters come close. Through tough tales we’re all softened a little and better off for knowing life’s sordid affairs so that we may learn to navigate the most treacherous of them. (via Readers’ Pick: Gillian Welch, “The Harrow & The Harvest” - Twangville)

What a great way to put it. Thanks for the post, bonnerj. :)

printing process of Gillian WElch’s album The Harrow and the Harvest

Seeing the print blocks and the ink make me physically hurt inside.

Derek, if you’re reading this, this is for you. 

I download my copy of the album digitally. But, now, of course, I’m going to have to buy a copy. I love things; especially things I can feel.

(update) I just ordered my copy, less than five minutes later. Ha ha ha. Oh, I’m a sucker for things.

Gillian Welch & David Rawlings - Caleb Meyer

Gillian Welch has one of the most honest voices I’ve heard lately. And, David Rawlings just plows along nicely on that guitar.
