    Folk Music

    Hello, I have recently started listening to a lot of folk music. Now when I say folk I'm referring to the modern variety; meaning artists like The Felice Brothers, Fleet Foxes, and The Avett Brothers. From the early years I have only gotten to listen to Bob Dylan, and Leonard Cohen. So any other Folk fans out there?

    Here's the lyrics to my favorite song at the moment:
    Goddamn You, Jim- The Felice Brothers
    Winter passed without a glance, took our only boy at last
    You cried God's arms were a blind an' bleeding ocean
    Blooming spring brought all I need
    Warmth and rain for me to seed my earth, good earth for our boy to lie in
    In the summer I work my land
    She walks like she still held his hand
    And I swear to God I caught her once or twice a'smiling.
    In the autumn, the gold wheat swaying,
    I cut her down from where she was swinging
    She said: Goddamn you, Jim, up there I could hear him laughing

    Others: love the stories that The Felice Brothers tell)
    It would be great If someone from outside the US, had some of their own country's folk music.
