God is God

Album: I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of a pair of songs - "I Am a Wanderer" being the other one - that Steve Earle wrote and produced for Joan Baez' 2008 album Day After Tomorrow before recording them himself. "I asked her permission before I recorded them myself," Earle told Billboard Magazine. "They were just too good to leave lying around. I think 'God is God' is one of the best songs I've ever written."
