    Keith,
    This is an early apology. I thought I would get something recorded tomorrow. Turns out Im still in the mountain. I got a message this morning that the AC went out at home and not to come home just yet. I may or may not be traveling tomorrow.

    I doubt Ill get an entry in this week but I do plan to try and watch what the gang is bringing you.

    Carry on!

    Default Ain't no grave gonna hold this body down

    Improvisation on an old Gospel song by Johnny Cash
    A bit of history: Claude Ely describes composing the song while sick with tuberculosis in 1934 when he was twelve years old. His family prayed for his health, and in response he spontaneously performed this song. Originally recorded by Bozie Sturdivant in 1941 in a slower, Appalachian gospel style and in 1946-7 by Sister Rosetta Tharpe with barrelhouse piano; the song in Ely's version was recorded in 1953 but composed in 1934 Many notable artists have performed the song, including Johnny Cash on the posthumous album American VI: Ain't No Grave. In 1967 the song was featured in the film Cool Hand Luke while Luke (Paul Newman) is digging a grave, performed by Harry Dean Stanton.

    This is one of my favourite songs. Turns out Johnny Cash did it with Fiona Apple at some point, so I had to do it. The lyrics spoke to me big time when I was a headstrong teenager too much like his dad, obviously they take on a more poignant meaning now I'm a dad myself.

    Wish I could do the vocals a bit more justice but I was too busy trying to get the chord progression right.


    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"
