Also, a song recorded by the The Flying Burrito Brothers
written by Gram Parsons
and Chris Hillman
Hillman is one of the original Byrds and one of only three original Byrds still living. Parsons, of course, is the country-rock pioneer
who played with the Byrds
for only a short time.
The song is full of apocalyptic lyrics, like "The scientists say it'll all wash away," and, "This old earthquake is gonna put me in the poorhouse; it seems like this whole world's insane."
The constant refrain says "Your gold-plated door won't keep out the lord's burning rain."
Recorded by many people, perhaps best by Emmylou Harris on her "Luxury Liner" album.
