Who cares if the lyrics are lameass Jesus **** when the music is so infectious and foot-stomping?

Cause there's nothing like trading Townes songs.

I'd heard generic radio country from the 90s/00s before I heard Townes, but "Our Mother the Mountain" was the first time I ever heard any country that made me realize that I might actually like the genre. It took a good long time before I really got into country, but when a buddy of mine posted that song in a forum I listened to it on repeat and was totally sprung. I've tried finding other country artists who can evoke that kind of otherworldly gothic creepiness, but am still waiting. "Our Mother the Mountain" is still one of the best songs I've ever heard. If there's a better country artist than Townes then I haven't heard them.

Yes, better than Dylan if only because
Townes actually wrote his own lyrics.

I'm still trying to figure out what "Our Mother the Mountain" is about, "Kathleen" is what I assume is the most disturbing song about suicide that I've ever heard, and "For the Sake of the Song" is probably the all-time song that could best make someone who's never been in a relationship understand what it's like to feud with your significant other. The man just talks into your ear like he was your own consciousness that you never realized you had.
