"21st of May" as written by and Sara Watkins Christopher Scott Thile....
It's time to bid this whole world goodbye
Oh, glory, time to fly away
We'll meet our savior in the sky
Hallelujah, the 21st of May

Sinner, heed these words of mine
'Bout the coming Judgment Day
Yes, the end is drawing nigh
Hallelujah, the 21st of May

They laughed while Noah built his boat,
Then cried when came the rain
They mock me now, but I will float
On the 21st of May

Well, I've never been so sure
And I've never led no one astray
'Cept in the fall of '94
But Hallelujah, the 21st of May

They laughed while Noah built his boat,
Then cried when came the rain
They mock me now, but I will float
On the 21st of May
They mock me now, but I will float
On the 21st of May

Hallelujah, the 21st of May

    "Sean wrote this song on May 20th, 2011, the day before the supposed rapture as predicted and advertised by Bay Area pastor Harold Camping (whose point of view he sings it from). It was a close call but we made it."
