A bluegrass apocalypse. Dangerous visions? True salvation? A cruel con game? It's not for me to understand.

About the song
Here's the dark underbelly of bluegrass gospel ...

This song features The Grizzley Souvenirs with Jack and me on vocals and guitars, Tom Adler on banjo and Al Faaet on percussion. Tom and Al probably deserve songwriting credits. And I think Alec Walling might have been there the night we wrote it.
Lyrics
By Steve Terrell and Jack Clift

I went down to the sacred grove
Down near Snakey Holler
I spoke in tongues, became undone
And then I lost it all
I really lost it all

I wandered for 100 days
100 nights I shuddered
I starved my body senseless there
The sky was filled with blood
The sky was raining blood

But then I found salvation
Where honeyed voices sing
God is great and God is good
And I have God’s gold ring

So all you reckless drifter boys
Hear my words and follow
Be watchful for that burning sign
Be ready for that call
Be ready for that call

And you will find salvation
The simple truth I bring
God is great and God is good
And I have God’s gold ring
