How long now till the clouds unroll and you come home?

Wednesday mid-morning I was talking with someone about the rumor that Green Day and U2 were covering an old song by the Skids together, for something connected with New Orleans. Could it be "The Saints Are Coming," I wondered. It's got it all: eschatology, "how long," a father, floods, "a weather change condemns belief," etc. Imagine my surprise when, Friday mid-morning, that turns out to be the song. You can read the announcement on Green Day's site (for the time being, I suppose.)
