Hootin' Like A Horn
"One day I called to see my dear Lorena, I thought she would meet me at the gate, but they took her away to ole Virginy, and left me to mourn for her fate..." No More The Moon Shines On Lorena, a bittersweet tale of love in slavery days, was originally recorded in 1930 by the Carter Family. Nearly fifty years later, mr. Chilton churned out a rather demented take definitely in a league of its own. Find it on the glorious mess called Like Flies On Sherbert, an album you either love or hate. I'm in the former camp for sure.
