This song reminds me of Casimir Pulaski Day by Sufjan Stevens for obvious reasons and I never thought any song could hit me in the gut like that one. But here we are.

I wonder how many times he had to rehearse this song to sing it without breaking down.

I’m 37 and my dad is 66. After fighting for 6 years he’s getting down to the nitty gritty and it won’t be long now. Dammit if this song doesn’t resonate. Fuck cancer.

I started liking country music about a year (almost exactly) and I’m now started to listen to the older country artists (Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, etc) and I’m now finding Jason Isbell’s music and it’s great. As of right now, my favorite artists, in no particular order, are Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Morgan Wallen, Brad Paisley, George Strait and the Zac Brown Band.

What's your point? Seems like you gotta little hate in your blood. This man here is the greatest song writer of this generation.
I just discovered this record by Isbell. The whole record is amazing, but this song caught me immediately. Such a wonderfully talented songwriter and performer!
Logan Rogers (5 months ago)
It's funny how I always come back to the same songs. The songs that make me cry. The songs that I feel like nobody else understands. The lyrics. The emotion. The tears.

Truly an incredible song----so much truth and sad beauty to it---and so painful--but we have all been in a situation of this sort---or if not--will be...A REAL TRUE COUNTRY SONG if there ever was one......

She said Andy, you're better than your past Winked at me and drained her glass Cross-legged on a barstool, like nobody sits anymore She said “Andy you're taking me home” But I knew she planned to sleep alone I'd carry her to bed, sweep up the hair from her floor If I'd fucked her before she got sick I'd never hear the end of it She don't have the spirit for that now We just drink our drinks and laugh out loud And bitch about the weekend crowd And try to ignore the elephant somehow Somehow She said Andy, you crack me up Seagram's in a coffee cup Sharecropper eyes, and the hair almost all gone When she was drunk, she made cancer jokes Made up her own doctors' notes Surrounded by her family, I saw that she was dying alone But I'd sing her classic country songs and she'd get high and sing along She don't have a voice to sing with now We burn these joints in effigy and cry about what we used to be And try to ignore the elephant somehow, somehow I've buried her a thousand times, given up my place in line But I don't give a damn about that now There's one thing that's real clear to me: No one dies with dignity We just try to ignore the elephant somehow We just try to ignore the elephant somehow We just try to ignore the elephant somehow Somehow Somehow

I've listened to this song hundreds of times...goosebumps every single time.
Mike Chase (1 year ago)
He’s making an absolute killing. He owns his record company and distribution as well. He makes me the same selling 150-200,000 albums than a band that sells 1-2 million albums. Very smart move and that doesn’t even take into account the money he makes of those who’ve signed into his label.

Its a hard thing to deal with being the elephant in the room. I've been trying for 7 1/2 years now and I've seen friends to scared to even come by or call.
Jerk My Crank (1 year ago)
I can somehow manage to hold back being choked up most of the song, but when he he says the line "she don't have a voice to sing with anymore", it gets me everytime.

best song written of our generation every song is like a movie really paints a picture
There are plenty of songwriters I love, but none of them move me like Jason Isbell.

The best song I've ever heard about cancer. Brilliant and true. No compromises. This is what art should be and do.

Jason Isbell is hands down the best singer/ songwriter that is still putting out music. In my opinion his song writting ranks up there with Kristofferson and Shaver.

Jeez listen to that guitar! D-45?

It’s songs like this that put Jason Isbell on a songwriting level few can achieve. I cannot listen to this without tearing up. It so perfectly and vividly paints the picture....just listen and you’ll see what i mean.

“Jason Isbell is the best lyric writer of my generation. He lives at a level where even great writers can only visit.” -John Mayer
And what a compliment that is right? John Mayer is a brilliant songwriter in his own right. Jason Isbell's songs move my soul!

Still don’t understand what elephant means in this song ,can anyone tell me?
YUKUN (1 year ago)
Chris Gonyea thx for that
Chris Gonyea (1 year ago)
Basically the "elephant" is that big issue everyone knows about, but doesn't want to talk about at all costs. In this case, someone dying with cancer...no one wants to acknowledge that fact in front of her.

My wife was going through breast cancer when this song came out by Jason truth lies within the lyrics of all of his music. But this song truly broke my heart. I will always be a fan of this man.
jeteye97 (1 year ago)
That second verse was very poignant to me and helped me resolve some of the feelings I had when my sister lost her battle. She was halfway across the country and i couldn’t do enough to help or be there. But the elephant didn’t care and ran it’s course. When I heard that verse, I understood she had what she needed and death is our own singular experience, regardless of who’s there.

The sharecropper eyes line is just so breathtakingly sad. Wow.
Randy Scott (1 year ago)
Great artist are no longer recognized that’s what happens when you have business people running an industry they really don’t understand plus they don’t come from the social class that produces this music so there you have it hope you enjoy lady ga ga!

Mishelle Rauth (1 year ago)
The talent of this man is incredible. Music and lyrics to this song are achingly sad yet beautiful in a way. From one who's been at the side of a friend dying of cancer, this song is amazing. Best songsmith I've listen to all year :)

Just an incredible song. Beautiful lyrics, beautiful melody, beautifully sung. Bravo.
Scott Reed (2 years ago)
a moving song to be sure. from a musicians perspective, one subtle detail I note is that throughout the chord progression, he never leaves the D note on the B string with his 3rd finger. it rings throughout the entire song. its subtle, almost hidden, but persistent...the little elephant in the song, musically
Danny Dealin (2 years ago)
This song is so impressive with the imagery. Every songwriter should play this until they dream of an angle to compete with it. Sir you set the bar with this one. Maximum respect. You went Tom T Hall and Springsteen with the visuals.

Silly Idea: Call up Ryan Adams, hit the road together, sing some songs (without a backup band) and make music history - (and all of us very happy). Thanks for your music!

Unfortunately I have lived this song. I have never heard anyone put these emotions to words. "There is one thing that is clear to me, no-one dies with dignity. " powerful song

Hello. Fellow survivor here. I wish I could say it made me a better person, but the price was high. Hope all is well on your end.
5yearsout (2 years ago)
I too have lived this song, the line about dying with dignity gets me, but the line that does it for me is "surrounded by her family I could see she was dying alone" always brings tears to my eyes because that's how I felt while going through treatment. The final journey we all have to take by ourselves.

He might just be the most gifted writer of this young century. The young man writes fantastic songs.
