“The Stable Song”

I’ve always been a deep thinker, which in some ways is a curse on what I call ‘mental’ days. I could go on and on about it, but this song mainly makes me think about past decisions and how they affect the future. It also brings to mind thoughts on how people can change across their life journeys. So many thoughts…

I’m sure everyone can relate to this song in some way because it has so much meaning about everything and anything for that matter. Are we mindful and learning from our mistakes? Are you a person who tries to minimize regrets? Do you ever want to go back and start something over? What do you think?


Remember when our songs were just like prayers
Like gospel hymns that you called in the air
Come down, come down sweet reverence
Unto my simple house and ring… and ring

Ring like silver, ring like gold
Ring out those ghosts on the Ohio
Ring like clear day wedding bells
Were we the belly of the beast, or the sword that fell?
Oh we’ll never tell

Come to me, clear and cold 
On some sea
Watch the world spinning waves
Like some machine

Now I’ve been crazy, couldn’t you tell?
I threw stones at the stars, but the whole sky fell
Now I’m covered up in straw, belly up on the table
And I drank and sang, and I passed in the stable

That tall grass grows high and brown
Well I dragged you straight in the muddy ground
And you sent me back to where I roam
Well I cursed and I cried, but now I know
Oh now I know

Yeah and I ran back to that hollow again 
Well the moon was just a sliver back then
And I ached for my heart like some tin man
When it came, oh it beat and it boiled and it rang
Oh, it’s ringing

Ring like crazy, ring like hell
And turn me back into that wild haired gale
Ring like silver, ring like gold
And turn these diamonds straight back into coal
And turn these diamonds straight back into coal
And turn these diamonds straight back…

Thanks for checking out Music Monday. What’s one of your favorite songs right now? Take care and have a wonderful week!

    1. Thanks, Jo. ❤️ I’m happy to know that you enjoy MM, and I always appreciate your kindness and support!

      Thanks for asking about her. She is much better. Unfortunately, she’s still dealing with fatigue and also some cognitive deficits. She’s a math whiz, and the other day she couldn’t divide 3 into 18. 😦 It bugs me, but it’s my belief that over time it’ll go away. I really just wish people would take this virus more seriously, especially now that I’ve experienced it first hand with own child and see the truth. It’s bizarre.

      Have a great week, Jo. 💜

      1. Thanks for sharing your child’s update. I’m still pulling for her. The ignorance of people, their willingness to turn their backs on others for the sake of politics continues to stun me. There are lessons here and I’m still trying to sort them out. Hang in there and know there are lots of us out here that care about you and your family.


  1. I’ve always thought about choices and decisions and how your life and the lives of others might be very different because of them. If I’d never gone to summer school and taken a finance class, would I have met my husband on that huge college campus? If we’d chosen a house in a different school district would we have the amazing friends we do now? It can make your mind spin if you think about it too long, lol.

    1. Me too, Teri. I realize more and more as I get older how important it is to consider others. It’s definitely crazy when you think about how you met your spouse! Thanks for mentioning that. I met mine due to selling quilts online, and he bought one and picked it up locally. He had just moved here and may have moved back if it weren’t for us meeting. It can definitely make your mind spin. 😉 Have a good week!

  2. Love the banjo. ❤ I’m sorry to read about your daughter struggling with a full recovery. I continue to keep her in my prayers. The young are so resilient, she will bounce back one her body has time to properly heal. I too wish people would take this seriously, but sadly it seems many have no concept of its devastation unless it hits them directly. Have a good week, and stay strong mama!

    1. I appreciate that sound. We’re counting our blessings, because it’s obviously not as bad as it could’ve been. It just bugs me to see her so tired all the time. Over time I’m sure she’ll be just fine like you say. The cognitive deficits are what scared me most. You have a good week too! 💜

  3. Every time I listen to a Music Monday pick from you, I’m reminded that one of the best blogging decisions I made was to follow your blog. I really like Gregory Alan Isakov as well. This is such a good song. My personal favorite is “If I Go, I’m Goin.”

    Looking forward to your next pick!
