The Way the Whole Thing Ends (Live)
by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
#AprilMusicChallenge Day 18: Your favorite artist/music to fall asleep to.

Whenever I want to get in a good nap Gillian Welch's "The Harrow & The Harvest" is my go to album to put on. I am not saying that it is boring; actually it is a terrific album. It just has a number of songs on it that are slow of tempo, very soothing and don't get too loud. "The Way the Whole Thing Ends" is the final track on the album, and like all of the songs on it was written and performed by Gillian Welch and her long-time partner David Rawlings, and produced by Rawlings. This is a live version from Santa Cruz, CA, in July of 2011. The studio version was previously juked by @phillipsmark https://www.godsjukebox.com/phillipsmark/gillian-welch-the-way-the-whole-thing-ends/

The album was nominated for Best Folk Album for the 54th Grammy Awards. Other soothing tracks on the album include "The Way It Will Be," previously juked by @CarlP https://www.godsjukebox.com/CarlP/gillian-welch-and-david-rawlings-the-way-it-will-be/ and "The Way It Goes," which I have previously posted here https://www.godsjukebox.com/kzone8/gillian-welch-the-way-it-goes/

"Say you wanna see my garden
And you wanna make it shine
Say you wanna see my blue jeans
Hanging on your old clothesline
Standing in the backdoor crying
Now you wanna be my friend
That's the way the cornbread crumbles
That's the way the whole thing ends

Now what's a little baby doing
Dressing up in banker's clothes?
What's a little sweetheart like you
Doing with a bloody nose?
Standing in the backdoor crying
Now you're gonna need a friend
That's the way the cornbread crumbles
That's the way the whole thing ends

Now once you had a hook and ladder
Up into the headless night
And once you had a motorcycle
But you couldn't ride it right
Standing in the doorway crying
Now you're gonna need a friend
That's the way the cornbread crumbles
That's the way the whole thing ends

Someone said something one time
But Daddy didn't talk too loud
People oughta stick together
That's the way to make a crowd
But here you come alone and crying
Now you wanna be my friend
That's the way the cornbread crumbles
That's the way the whole thing ends

Momma's in the beauty parlor
And Daddy's in the baseball pool
Sister's in the drive-in movie
Brother's in the old high school
Now here you come alone and crying
Once, you know, you were my friend
That's the way the cornbread crumbles
That's the way the whole thing ends

Standing in the backdoor crying
Now you wanna be my friend
That's the way the cornbread crumbles
That's the way the whole things ends"

Have a good nap and enjoy!
