The Low Anthem

I was listening to the "All Songs Considered" podcast one night and heard a clip of a song from the group, The Low Anthem. I can't seem to get enough of them these days, just something about their music that draws me to them. They have a song called, "Ohio" and I think it's one of the best songs that I've come across in 2009. Here is the video and I put the lyrics below. On a personal note, I think of a pretty lady named Jillian every time I hear it, she was taken early and loved dearly.




Lost my love before her time, oo oo
Lost my love before her time, oo oo
On the way to Ohio On the way to Ohio


Now every new love is just a shadow, oo oo
Every new love is just a shadow, oo oo


'Cause once you've known love you don't know how to find love, oo oo
Yeah once you've found love you don't know how to find new love
All the way to Ohio All the way to Ohio


Heard her voice come through the pines in Ohio
I heard her voice singing in the pines in Ohio


She sang bless your soul you crossed that line to Ohio
Bless your soul you crossed that line oo oo
All the way to Ohio
All the way to Ohio

This is a great song! One day when I actually know how to play more than twinkle twinkle on the violin I will try to learn this one!
