On the way to your brother's house in the valley deep,
By the river bridge a cradle floating beside me.
In the whitest water on the banks against the stone
You will lift his body from the shore and bring him home

    It's ok, but Blue Ridge Mountains should have closed the album

    Yeah, a bit of an album spoiler, although changing it to "David James" is definitely cause for re-assessment. Good call, Chadipoo.

    Even if you don't like the song, you've got to admit that Pecknold's voice is beautiful, in this song especially.

    Haunting...How I wish my son Vinny (who turned me on to Fleet Foxes), was still present physically in this world. There just are no words :-(

    This'd be annoying if it was anyone other than Pecknold singing, but I love it because it is.

    I also agree, this is the worst song on an otherwise fantastic album.

    Me too mgudites, this is the only song from this album that I don't like at all.

    Guess I'm the only one who can't stand this song. Love the rest of this album but the chorus on this song just irritates the shit out of me.

    Their most powerful song in my opinion.

    This is such a wonderful ending to the album.

    I know someone whose name is Oliver James. I hate him though. Anyway, that's what this song always makes me think of.

    Has got to be one of the most beautiful, yet simplest songs ever. <3
