Mississippi John Hurt
oh wow… His voice is mesmerizing in this version. I love it.
Oh a false clock tries to tick out my time
To disgrace, distract and bother me
And the dirt of gossip blows into my face
And the dust of rumors covers me
But if the arrow is straight, and the point is slick
It can pierce through dust no matter how thick
So I’ll make my stand, and remain as I am
And bid farewell and not give a damn.
