Tripping Along The Ledge


The Moonshiner (1963)

Surely the most nihilistic folk song ever written and also – not entirely coincidentally – my party piece. Weddings, bar mitzvahs etc. etc.

One Response to “The Moonshiner (1963)”

  1. Eoin Says:

    @ EK – Its a traditional Irish song. Dylan didn’t write it. And the song about the girl with ringlets in her hair is the Lakes of Pontchartrain.
