Doug Wallin - Omie Wise (Folkways)

I've been listening to a bunch of the Smithsonian Folkways collections: Bluegrass, Old-Time, Railroad Songs. My favorite is "Mountain Songs." This clip is "Omie Wise" by Doug Wallin. The song is part of a "murder ballad" tradition and has as dark a vision into the human psyche as any goth metal song.
