I think In God’s Country has become the theme to the tour we’re about to set off on, actually. In 2017, though it was written in 1987, it seems to be the song that resonates the most lyrically.
‘Desert sky, dream beneath the desert sky. The rivers run but soon run dry. We need new dreams tonight’
I think there’s a feeling out there; not just in America but out in the world, where, you know, people want America to mean something again
