I wrote this Louvin Brothers pastiche once and it kind of scared me, I felt like I was channeling Ira. I am posting it here in honor of this Holy Week of Our Lenten Quarantine. Stay safe!

Don't Be A Stranger To The Manger - James Redd
(Chorus)
Don't be a stranger to the manger
Don't keep your distance from the cross
Don't forget you'll have to answer to
The man upstairs who's boss

One day there'll come an onslaught
Of a great Satanic horde
When we fight that final battle
Will you side up with the Lord?

(Verse)
So many men and women
Pursuing gold and fame
Seeking out their own destruction
Like moths before the flame

They'll enjoy a few good hours
But at what enormous cost
When their one immortal soul
For eternity is lost

( repeat chorus)
(2nd verse)
On the stages of theaters (pronounced "the-aters")
On the floors of ballrooms grand
In the discotheques and nightclubs
Across this sinful land

You can hear their voices rising
In a great unruly swell
Is there anything more certain
Than where in the end they'll dwell?

(chorus)
