I love this song. I hate my family living so far away

Gillian channels the Appalachian ethos like no one else--includ i n g Dave Rawlings. She stands up on her own as one of the best folk musicians of our era. The song is what the phrase "elegant in its simplicity" is all about.

i love Gillian Welch and this song. Another favorite is Red Clay Halo. She captures the old bluegrass emotionality perfectly. Something lost on new country artists who favor cutesy turns of phrases and overproduced rock songs.

beautiful song--i think it 'hits home' with anyone who's lost special folks in their lives. this is one heck of an emotional one. we are all orphans when our moms pass away.
great acoustic guitar, also.

This song hits home with me. Having recently lost my dear Mother, I am the last of my family. My brothers passes years ago, my sister died of breast cancer about five yearts ago and my Dad died of Parkinson's, I believe as a result of working on the factory line for some thirty years. My children grow more dear to me, especially in the light that they are my only family left...I include my nephew in that. Thank you for bringing the Music Project to us all.
