Over yonder in the graveyard
Where the wild, wild flowers grow
There they laid my own true lover
She'd gone from me, forever more

Fairer than the sweetest flower
Restless as the wildest way
Pored in with love deep as a ocean
This is the girl that I did win

I left her there back in the mountain
To see the world riches to gain
Oh, when I returned no earthy treasure
Could ease this heart so filled with pain

They saw high above the mountain
Beneath that little mound of clay
The girl that I returned to marry
So stand a mound of flowers did lay

I'll go lay you down and wonder
Lay aside my earthy gain
All I am undone in riches
Undone in sorrow I'll remain (x2)

Few songs make me tear up the first time I hear them. Rare gems like this make me sob. Perfect blend of vocals, lyrics and instruments. 10+
ya gotta check out The Steeldrivers first album/cd, Crooked Still sounds like they did
Love the singer's voice.

Terrific album, and I love the notion of a cello solo not to mention its deft execution.

 
Well said. 
Belongs with dave carter and tracy grammer, tanglewood tree
Something quite haunting about this... a bit 'Goldfrappy' maybe... still I like it :-)
Went to buy the album through the RP link and it came up with "Song Up In Her Head" by Sarah Jarosz, odd. Gonna see if I can find it and hope RP still gets it's cut.
My wife and I loved this track. We'll investigate and hopefully buy the album.

Dude, thats what headphones are for... and maybe marriage counseling.

Simply put... Excellent!
I'm loving the whole surge in string bands - Crooked Still, Trampled By Turtles, Infamous Stringdsuters, etc. I love Aoife O'Donovan's voice. (and she is a cutie!).
I heard this song back in September and bought the CD. Great stuff.

There's a Nashville in Manitoba, eh?

 
Manitoba?  I thought this band was from Massachusetts.  Wherever - cool sound.
Love it!
boston blue grass!
This is great stuff,...   :-)
Love the strings!
Yes, this is an excellent band!
