I finally found a recording of this great spiritual number she and Jonathan Rice did together at the gig I went to a while back.

Then the whole troupe sang the rousing old-time revival hymn "Cold Jordan", with Rice giving his own bristling take on Oberst's drawl. Sharing a microphone, Rice and Lewis resembled a fresh-faced Johnny Cash and June Carter.

I just got Rabbit Fur Coat. Very impressed. Great voice, great melodies, great wordplay.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."
