Bullet the Blue Sky

from the Rattle and Hum album
Introduced by Jimi Hendrix’ treatment of The Star Spangled Banner
This live performance (20th December 1987) adds these words at the end:

So I’m back in my hotel room
With John Coltrane and A Love Supreme
In the next room I hear some woman scream out
That her lover’s turning off, turning on the television
And I can’t tell the difference between ABC News, Hill Street Blues
And a preacher on the old time gospel hour
Stealing money from the sick and the old
Well the God I believe in isn’t short of cash, mister!
I feel a long way from the hills of San Salvador
Where the sky is ripped open
And the rain pours through a gaping wound
Pelting the women and children
Pelting the women and children
Who run – who run into the arms of America
And now, my thought as I begin this blog…
There are enough resources to fund the mission and vision of your organization or congregation.
