“Houses on the Hill,” Whiskeytown
What a beautiful way to tell one soldier's story, through the eyes of the woman he never came back to.
“Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” The Kingston Trio
One of the great songwriting stories in music history, Pete Seeger started this song in 1955 and Joe Hickerson added verses five years later to give the song its signature circular conclusion. Seeger liked it so much, he agreed to share credit.
“Memorial Day,” James McMurtry
The slices of life McMurty creates are always astoundingly delicious.
