"Let The Mystery Be" Performed by Iris DeMent, Russ Barenberg, Jay Ungar, Molly Mason, and Donal Lunny


The quirky singer-songwriter, highlighted in the Transatlantic Sessions session above, is mentioned in the post below this one, and with all this "War on Christmas" crap this time of year, it seems high time for some Agnosticism, or at least some New Mysterianism:
    Everybody's wonderin' what and where they all came from
    Everybody's worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go when the whole thing's done
    But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me
    I think I'll just let the mystery be

    Some say once gone you're gone forever and some say you're gonna come back
    Some say you rest in the arms of the Savior if in sinful ways you lack
    Some say that they're comin' back in a garden bunch of carrots and little sweet peas
    I think I'll just let the mystery be

    Some say they're goin' to a place called Glory and I ain't saying it ain't a fact
    But I've heard that I'm on the road to Purgatory and I don't like the sound of that
    I believe in love and I live my life accordingly
    But I choose to let the mystery be
Interesting, though, that there is even a pro-Protestant, anti-Catholic stance in these lines:
    Some say they're goin' to a place called Glory and I ain't saying it ain't a fact
    But I've heard that I'm on the road to Purgatory and I don't like the sound of that
