It's All Going To Pot -- Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard

When I first heard this song, I thought about a certain great uncle of mine who was sure that civilization was going to end, just after he died. He was predicting oil shortages just as the US started pumping more oil than we ever had in history, so you can't take him as a prophet. He'd appreciate the overt subject Willie is claiming here.

Of course, one could accuse Willie and Merle of talking about something else than the end of the world. I can't imagine why one would think that....
