Bluegrass ditty about wisdom and sobriety: they often come after dark times. From Joey's 2017 release, Terlingua Taproot

Lyrics

Well, I come here with all my worldly possessions
A quest for promises and riches untold
Left my homeland and all I knew
Just to find that precious gold

Along the way, you soon come to discover
Things don't always go as you thought they'd go
Reality comes a running like a flood
On all you thought you knew

Comes a time when you're pressed to a corner
Left alone with devices you've made
Comes a time when you want to run
But you just can’t run away

And the truth is a hard one to swallow
Face to face with all that you know
All you stand on it just fades to gray
On the dark night of the soul

So take advice if you will now children
On this journey of life as you go
All you stand on it just fades away
On the dark night of the soul
