Sunday music: John Hartford

Live version of one of my favorite John Hartford songs, I’m still here. (There are so many, it’s tough to pick.) Made all the more poignant by his passing. I saw him live summer of ’89 when I literally stumbled onto an outdoor show on the river north of LaCrosse, Wis. I figured I must live right to be so blessed.

I may have lost my lunchbox, but I’m still here.

I’m Still Here is no longer here, lost in the great Viacom YouTube purge of ’07. So here’s Skipping in the Mississippi Dew:

Flower music

Part of one of the Art of Horticulture projects (see post below) involved flower and garden lyrics. This is the first song that came to my mind (after David Mallet’s Garden Song, of course).

Dead Flowers

Or if you must have Mic, here’s live Stones version.

Some others:

More to come.

Update 1/15/2008: Most of those YouTube links were lost in the Great Viacomm Purge. But my favorite is back:

Can’t make it here anymore

I know it’s a garden blog. But I wanted to practice embedding You Tube video. Besides, this is my favorite angry song.

That’s James McMurtry. Paints a pretty good story, like his dad, Larry. Saw him open for Nancy Griffith in the Twin Cities circa ’88. David Bromberg was in his back up band. Quite a night.

Even more powerful acoustic version.

Or if you want something really angry (and beautiful), try Bruce Cockburn’s If I Had A Rocket Launcher.
