this song is part of a concept album about kentucky coal country, inspired by service work, homebuilding, in harlan county. the two members of jesse and the revelator recorded this album together and apart...they were seperated by an ocean due to their efforts as world-wide volunteers. enjoy the mournful folk atmosphere and the detail and sense of place in the words.
