Lord Tell Me Why - Ry Cooder

from the album Pull Up Some Dust And Sit Down (2011)

Figure this out, Ry Cooder channels an R.L. Burnside I Got Messed Up vibe and chants a lyric that goes "Lord tell me why, the white man ain't worth nothin' in this world no more" and the internet mobocracy pigeon holes the entire album as "Woody Guthrie-inspired".  Am I listening to the same record?  I love the vibe, the backing "church" vocals, and the way Ry Cooder morphs his voice to perfectly suit the song.  Masterfully crafted.  I dig it.
