Let The Mystery Be

This is the lovely Iris DeMent singing my religion. Here are the lyrics.


  1. Anybody who loves Iris is a friend of mine...lovely song and right on the money.


  2. The DVD of the entire first season of this BBC show is about to be released. I can't wait!

  3. I've learned, unfortunately, the DVD is in PAL format, which most US players don't support. Dang! Thank Cheesus for the Youtubes.

  4. You should hear Snad sing this song. She did it for us in church and made Jeebus Cheesus smile. That is how I found about the song.

  5. What a sweet thing to say, John! It was an honor and a joy to sing this song in church! Keith Richards sang a song with George Jones on The Bradley Barn Sessions, and wrote that he was "a turd" compared to Jones. That's a comparison I will humbly echo, compared to Iris.
