Lately, our taste for folk music has fallen from folk into the realm of country, which is definitely the case with Emmylou Harris' recent album, All I Intended to Be. This album is perfect for a long road-trip across abandoned corn fields and wide stretches of open highway. Emmylou has been around for a long time, this is her 21st album, and the simple truth of it rings in our ears. We love this music, despite its old-time country feel. It seems like something our great-grandparents would listen to...
"So don't be tempted by the shiny apple,
Don't you eat of the bitter fruit.
Hunger only for a taste of justice,
Hunger only for a world of truth.
'Cause all that you have is your soul."
--All That You Have is Your Soul
"Somewhere in the distance,
Northern lights will shine.
You'll be there beside me, my darlin',
Far beyond the great divide.
You'll be mine forever, my darlin',
Far beyond the great divide."
--Beyond the Great Divide
