Jacob's Dream

Lyrics

In the spring of 1856, with the snow still on the ground
Two little boys were lost in the mountains above the town
The father went out hunting, the boys had stayed behind
While mother tended to her chores, they wandered from her side

Yeah I live this somg
I heard Alison sing this song at the Fox theatre in St Louis and was absolutely powerful!
This is just simply the best song ever. Sad; but really good.
This is so depressing but haunting, I don't think i'll be able to listen to it again, it's just as bad as the song whiskey lullaby

Mind-blowing . . . !
Absolutely Beautiful
One of Alison's best songs for sure. Absolutely haunting, but it's musical and lyrical perfection.
