The clip Jude Talks About Folk Music from I'm Not There. (2007) with Cate Blanchett, Bruce Greenwood With your mercury mouth In the missionary times And your eyes like smoke And your prayers like rhymes And your silver cross And your voice like chimes Doesn't really matter, you know, what kind of nasty names people invent for the music. But, uh, folk music is just a word, you know, that I can't use anymore. What I'm talking about is traditional music, right, which is to say it's mathematical music, it's based on hexagons. But all these songs about, you know, roses growing out of people's brains and lovers who are really geese and swans are turning into angels... I mean, you know, they're not going to die. They're not folk music songs. They're political songs. They're already dead. You'd think that these traditional music people would... would gather that mystery, you know, is a traditional fact, you know, seeing as they're all so full of mystery. And contradictions. Yeah, contradictions. And chaos. Yes, it's chaos, clocks, and watermelons...
