    this was my least favorite Joanna Newsom song but it's been stuck in my head lately. the harmonies are weird. but I'm comin' around to it.

    @clockworkwombat you should listen to Dirty Old Town by the Dubliners then, which is basically the same song but with different lyrics.

    The beginning of this song still kinda startles me, sometimes. That doesn't mean I don't love it, though! :)

    She sounds like a really old woman sometimes and I love it. I will take her any day of the week
