An easy life?

'Must I be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fought to win their prize,
And sailed through bloody seas?'

- Isaac Watts, 1721

Recorded by The Carter Family as 'On the Sea of Galilee':

Very cool!

...I once used to work not too far from the Carter Fold - if you ever make it this side of the Atlantic (have you yet?) - that stretch all the way down from Abingdon VA though to Asheville NC I can't recommend highly enough.

I have a feeling it might ring a few chords in ya. :)

Thanks, some of my earliest memories are of my grandfather singing Carter Family songs to me.
