Song of the Day – North Country Girl
My friend Fred gave me some mixed CDs (old school but cool anyway) and I was listening to them on the train out to Amagansett yesterday afternoon. This version of North Country Girl (from Nashville Skyline?) came on and it just gave me chills. I had to share it with all of you. Something about Johnny Cash’s voice just does that to me.
And while I am on the subject of this amazing song, here’s the cover that E did at the Eels Town Hall Show that the Gotham Gal and I went to last summer.
And no blog post on this song would be complete without Pete Townshend’s version from the Chinese Eyes record.
