O Mary don’t you weep no more

Tags : 

I just picked up Bruce Springsteen’s We Shall Overcome (the Pete Seeger Sessions) on the weekend and I’m listening to it now.

Awesome!

If you like folk/world/bluegrass/roots music, don’t pass this up. (And if you live in Canada, like me, you’ll have to buy it in plastic and paper, since it’s not available off the Canadian iTunes music store.)

How could you not love a CD with song like My Oklahoma Home:

. . . Mister as I bent to kiss her,
She was picked up by a twister …

Wow, you’re right, fantastic album, a very different sound to his other stuff, very nice and relaxing and “jangly” if ya know what I mean! (and jangly is meant in a good way of course 🙂

Yeah, very real … Springsteen recorded it live without rehearsal, at least according to the info with the CD, with a group of musicians he had heard at some local festival or something.

I have a question about the song, O Mary don’t you weep.
Do you know what the phrase “mary wore three links of chain on every link was Jesus name” means or is it symbolic of something?

I don’t know.

Three links might be a reference to the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit … but that’s just a guess.
