True love will find you in the end

Cover of the oft-covered song by the un-coverable Daniel Johnston. Main track recorded in my dorm bathroom in the winter of 2009 by drumming a banjolele with a pencil.

Featuring Daniel Johnston (yes, that Daniel Johnston), Jad Fair, and item. Contains a bit of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', and may hold the world's record for the most number of musical bridges ever in a song.
