Could you lie to get out of it?

Country music lends itself to ‘storytelling’ songs, and today I heard one that verged on sickly-sweet. In it a child asked daddy about heaven, and one line in particular stood out. It went something like:

“Do you think they need another angel to help them pour the rain?”

Ick. I can’t help but think that rain-detail would be the heavenly equivalent of jury-duty.

Yeah, that's a pretty vapid song. Good to see another country fan (?) in the 'sphere; being hated by everyone else, we can use all the people we can get. :)
