I love this song. Like Ashoken Farewell it has become a backdrop for the Civil War. Although it was written a decade before the war began, the song captures the essence of the poor rural South.
I have always heard it as a slow mournful cry of sorrow. However, the melody is so strong it begs for more.
I have given you more.
