    His point being, the common people (the salt of the earth, the godly people, the goodly hearted, etc) were duped into burning jews down to lamp shades and soap because their leaders told them that they were evil. If you can't trust your "good and just" neighbor to do the right thing...who can you trust? That's why he feels you need a "Busload of Faith" to get by.

    can someone please contribue their thoughts on the lyric: "You can't depend on the goodly hearted; the goodly hearted made lamp-shades and soap." Thanks.

    fresh to all this, but yes: WAY too few shouts, this is one THOSE raw rock built on raw chicago blues, and all the roots are there
