In Their Words: “‘Ways of Man’ is a song I worked on after learning Billy Strings’ cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright.’ I wanted a song on this record where music moved with the right hand in a way Billy does so gracefully, and a song that lyrically expressed an idea I find essential to my own life’s philosophy. Ultimately, ‘Ways of Man’ tries to shine a light on how easy it is to give ourselves credit while failing to give the benefit of the doubt to others. We’re all dealt a random lottery ticket in life, and we need to create space in our lives for others to make mistakes without unfair judgment. I’m mostly talking to myself in the song, reminding myself that all I can do is put my best efforts forward. I cannot guarantee outcomes, and neither can anyone else…so take it easy and have mercy on yourself and on others. The horns and lap steel in the arrangement really help set the vibe of the tune, and I hope the song conveys a sonic warmth while expressing a sense of humility and gratitude for what we each have in our lives.” — Adam Weinberg
