When I go don't cry for me
In my father's arms I'll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I'll be whole
Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus' face
And I will not be ashamed
For my savior knows my name
It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away
Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven's store
Come and drink and thirst no more
So weep not for me my friend
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to him
Who will raise the dead again
It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

Jesus Smile reflects in the moon and in the sun
Take already these energies
Don't wait the death to know if paradise or not
Sun is your real father
And Moon your real mother
You can decide just now to live among milk and honey

A pleasant melody, but the lyrics are frightening and represent the worst of cult thinking.  There is nothing after this life, so don't squander it, and please, don't celebrate death like it's something to look forward to.  It's an ending, not a beginning, and telling people that it's gonna be great is just bullshit.  Instead, concentrate on making this life better if you can.  Stop telling people that death is this great thing, prettied up in a nice melody like sugar to make the death more acceptable.  One should strive for something better, not accept this big lie that there is something waiting after we die, because there is not.

Splitting hairs over country/western/American roots music must stem from overidentification with what passes for "Country" these days.
Awesome song/artist. Emmy Lou does it justice. Thanks RP!

Emmylou stole it from her, Miller wrote.  Emmylou has written very little of her material.
 
Doing a cover version of someone else's song is not "stealing".  Isn't there enough noxious hyperbole and exaggeration these days?

To be fair, finding an invisible entity of any sort (even an Earth-bound, non-magician), is pretty challenging - believe me.  I mean: they're invisible, dude.  You'd have to use a spray bottle filled with glycerin or throw a bunch of talcum powder all over the place.  Then if you don't locate them you still have to mop up and/or vacuum the room.
Great sound on this one!

Anyone know if this is Julie Miller of Buddy & Julie Miller? I randomly caught their act in a little bar in Avalon (Santa Catalina Island), California, way back in 2001, and I was hooked, but have not heard anything from them since. Brought back a nice memory.
Cool guitar sound, and singin' too! {#Clap}
This girl has an incredible story of abuse and survival.  Her song is a testimony to her strength and faith.  Haunting.

All the folks down at the doobie house love Emmylou! 
I'm a born and born-again, dyed-in-the-wool, turtles-all-the-way-down atheist and I approve of this song.  It raises the hair on the back of my neck.
Damn fine music.

Rich posh boys dont run my country. I work.  I am not on the right.  You sed u would not shop at that store.  U know something...i have held at least one job since i was seven...i have worked with them all in all types of jobs...everyone here knows you dont work you dont eat...u get back what you put in...u seem to think everyone just has the wool pulled over their eyes and they just need professor to explain it to them...but that is not the case..people understand profs arguments here better than profs do and they reject it...story over.
Can't get enough of her. Her and Buddy together are fickin' amazing.

I usually hate those little girl voices (for some reason played with great regularity here on RP) but this song is so good, that her voice doesn't bother me....and there seems to be some grit behind her (not to mention talent) which redeems it.

Yep, that sounds like a seriously crappy place to work. Wal-Mart have a deservedly bad rep for working conditions and pay.

This was more the rule than exception.  I have talked to many former employees over the years from all over this part of the US and what I went through was pretty much par for the course.

I bought from Walmart recently but your post reminded me why I shouldn't and won't again. The low prices are amazing, but many times if the product's quality can be lowered—say, socks or shirts—Walmart will do it. And the horror stories I hear about working at that place are unending. 

As for the song, I really prefer Emmylou Harris's version...
hearing this song, all my tears washed away.

Brilliant guitarist.

Should come to NL again soon!!!

I like this - without Ms. Miller twang, the arrangement and instrumentation could easily be mistaken for a Fairport Convention track.
It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

Steve Earle influence? I like this.
This song is purt' near horrible, y'all.
I'd love to like this song more, as it is a great SONG, but Julie Miller has the singing voice of an 8-year-old girl, and I just can't abide.
 
Another awesome artist I would not have discovered without RP!
VERY-VERY GOOD!

Caught Buddy Miller backing Robert Plant (with vocals help from Patti Griffin) at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Buddy was great, couldn't really hear Patty, Robert was having a very off day, but enjoying himself immensely.

Buddy and Julie's work is among the best of the Americana genre. Depths there not immediately apparent, making it an art form that will endure.

You are correct..I cannot understand this theory..I'm not putting it down either..but celebrating it.. marvel at it..? naaah bam23 wrote:

Sorry, neither the original post to which you are responding nor your silly assumptions about the entire Universe, which appear to be based on a series of texts that you were taught to believe by people who were themselves taught, ad infinitum (or at least for a couple thousand years) the same things, have any bearing on the musical qualities of this piece. And descended from dinosaur poop? I suggest that we carry within ourselves carbon and some other elements that were once in the form of dinosaur poop, but why is this not something to celebrate and marvel at, instead of another weak effort to put down a theory that you do not appear to actually understand?
 



"All My Tears"  ........Julie Miller with Emmylou Harris........


Also decidedly not a C&W fan, but this one had a good feel to it.  Voice and guitars went together perfectly.
Don't much like C & W but this is nice...almost as nice as the Chris Isaak that followed it!

As per the "law of gravity doesn't work" comment below, it actually does, as long as you're on planet earth!


Love it!
Compelling snare so hard it makes you sit up and take notice,  classic vocals, and gurgling low register country guitar.
Classic American music.

Well I was checking the comments to see if it was Buddy Miller singing with her.  Great song, by the way.  Saw her and Buddy many years ago when they opened for Steve Earle and they were awesome.

Not sure how this got so far off topic, but  thought I'd mention that Newton's Law of Gravity disagrees with Einstein's Theory of Relativity in some cases.   They've been able to test some of these disagreements, and guess which what - the Theory was right and the Law was wrong (one case is the details of Mercury's orbit)

Is that the guy from Union Station that she is singing with?
 
My first thought when I heard her voice was Casey Chambers.{#Yes}
She is amazing solo but I love her collaborations w/Buddy too.

This is my first time hearing this version. It's good, but I couldn't disagree more.
Sounds like she swallowed a Wiffle ball halfway down but is still trying to sing through it.
