Now Playing Tracks

influx1989:

Well my grandad’s dad walked down Katahrin’s Mountain
And he asked Tillie Helton to be his bride
He said,“Won’t you walk with me out of the mouth of this holler
or we’ll never leave Harlan alive.”

What a fabulous piece of storytelling in song, and what a beautifully sad song it is.

Some of you might recognize this song from the FX series Justified, except the episode featured the Brad Paisley version. I much prefer this version, which is the original.
