Morning Song – White Man’s World

July 18, 2017

With lyrical and musical allusions sweeping across American history to everyone from Daniel Emmett to Johnny Cash to Bill Withers in “White Man’s World”—not to mention his own sober-minded and clear-eyed gaze—Jason Isbell is in the clubhouse with the early lead for “Best Song About America In The Trump Era” (White Guy Category).

I’m a white man living in a white man’s nation;
I think the man upstairs must’ve took a vacation;
I still have faith, but I don’t know why;
Maybe it’s the fire in my little girl’s eyes,
Maybe it’s the fire in my little girl’s eyes.
