Currently in my CD Player

(I know, I still use a CD player. I own an iPod, but when I’m in the kitchen I’m all old-school ‘n stuff.)

Those of you who enjoy Sandra McCracken’s newer albums will almost certainly love Gypsy Flat Road, her 2001 release. It contains many gems, one of which is the title cut:

Across the gypsy flat road
Where everything closes down tonight
Across the gypsy flat road
Where the steps and the stars are light

And it rained all day
And it rained all day
And it rained all day
With the bounty of new wine

The sky settles in low
On the rooftops of this trainboard town
We are upstairs alone
And we speak only with the whisper sounds

Will there come a day
When our faces will not lift out of the dust
Can we then still say,
That this mercy is our only trust

…what was incurable, desperate blindness
has been bound up from all sides with lovingkindness
comfort for sorrow,
rivers for dryness
come and drink you who have no money

And it will rain all day
And it will rain all day
And it will rain all day
With the bounty of new wine

The melody is easy, simple…the guitar lulls you into the feeling of a lazy rainy day. Beautiful.

    Yeah, I agree with Dorci- I didn’t realize people don’t use CD players anymore. We don’t have an IPod… Would it help to say that official government business is still done on a typewriter with folders (that are conveniently “lost” when we go in to get our visas renewed)?
