Agnieszka  |cymcia| I thought it might be interesting for you to read Barton Hollow lyrics (the song which was mentioned in The Edge of Never). Btw- I also recommend the The Civil Wars songs :D

"Barton Hollow"

I'm a dead man walking here
But that's the least of all my fears
Ooh, underneath the water

It's not Alabama clay
That gives my trembling hands away
Please forgive me father

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow
Devil gonna follow me e'er I go
Won't do me no good washing in the river
Can't no preacher man save my soul

Did that full moon force my hand?
Or that un marked hundred grand?
Ooh, underneath the water
Please forgive me father

Miles and miles in my bare feet
Still can't lay me down to sleep
If I die before I wake
I know the Lord my soul won't take

I'm a dead man walking
I'm a dead man walking

Keep walking and running and running for miles
Keep walking and running and running for miles
Keep walking and running and running for miles

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow
Devil gonna follow me e'er I go
Won't do me no good washing in the river
Can't no preacher man save my soul

J Hannah: You will love The Civil Wars' Barton Hollow album. I play it constantly. However, I think they are in the process of (or already have) broken up. I sure hope someone can hit both of them in the head and knock some sense into them. We need a soundtrack for our The Edge of Never movie!!


Hannah thats horrible news hopefully its just rumours


Tamsyn I snagged the song when it was a free download right before it hit it big. I do find myself listening to it more after reading the book. lol It's a shame when musicians with good mojo break up. I'm still mourning LMFAO.
