Kentucky native Sturgill Simpson releases new video

Sturgill Simpson has released another new video for his cover tune "The Promise" that was originally made famous by When In Rome.  As you know, I'm a huge fan of Sturgill, who is originally from Jackson, Kentucky...then made his way up to Versailles, Ky, on over to Utah before heading to Nashville.  Be sure to grab a copy of "Metamodern Sounds of Country Music" as well as "High Top Mountain."

Lyrics to The Promise as performed by Sturgill Simpson

If you need a friend
Don't look to a stranger
You know in the end, I'll always be there
But when you're in doubt
And when you're in danger
Take a look all around, and I'll be there

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say 

I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me 

I promise, I promise you I will

When your day is through
And so is your temper
You know what to do
I'm gonna always be there
Sometimes if I shout 

It's not what's intended 

These words just come out
With no gripe to bear
