Gillian Welch: By The Mark

Hard-core religion from the Gillster, assisted by David Rawlings and Ricky Skaggs. ‘I will know my Saviour when I come to him, by the mark where the nails have been.’

Ry Cooder: Nobody

Another mournful, one-word-titled piece from the Jazz album. Nobody was written by Alex Rogers and Bert Williams and was first recorded by Arthur Collins in 1905.
