Get Thee Behind Me Satan

This is a video of Billy Joe Shaver's song "Get Thee Behind Me Satan" (he's joined by John Anderson). He is in my opinion one of the top two or three country and western artists ever. Billy Joe is a good singer and performer but his real talent is songwriting. His life is an amazing story which often finds its way into his songs. After losing his son and wife in the space of a year he found consolation in the welcoming arms of Christ. I know this is not Orthodox but put the theology aside and enjoy a song by a man who feels very strongly about his convictions.
