Josh Ritter - “Idaho”

All that love all those mistakes / What else can a poor man make? / So I gave up a life of crime / I gave it to a friend of mine / Something else was on my mind / The only ghost I’m haunted by / I hear her howling down below / Idaho oh Idaho 

Grizzly Bear - “Colorado”

When I clung to you there was nothing to hold on tight with / you left me adrift  / Colorado, what now?

Iron & Wine - “Peace Beneath the City”

Here’s a prayer for the body buried by the interstate / Mother of a soldier / a tree in a forest up in flames / Black valley, peace beneath the city

Tori Amos - “Virginia”

oh virginia / do you remember / when the land held your hand  / oh virginia / she will let you back in  / oh virginia / you can’t remember your name

Emily Jane White - “I Lay to Rest (California)”

It’s only California, it’s only California / Oh I lay to rest / Oh now, money maker / The hands of the devil’s sister / Oh they laid me down

Gillian Welch - “Tennessee”

Now I’ve tried drinking rye and gamblin’ / Dancing with damnation is a ball / But of all the little ways I’ve found to hurt myself / Well you might be my favorite one of all

Anais Mitchell - “Young Man in America”

Like the wind I make my moan / Howl in the canyon / There’s a hollow in my bones / Make me cry and carry on / Make the foam fly from my tongue / Make me want what I want / Another wayward son waiting on oblivion

The Low Anthem - “To Ohio”

Heard her voice come through the pines in Ohio / I heard her voice singing in the pines in Ohio / She sang bless your soul you crossed that line to Ohio / Bless your soul you crossed that line

Bruce Springsteen - “Atlantic City”

Well now, everything dies, baby, that’s a fact / But maybe everything that dies someday comes back / Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty / And meet me tonight in Atlantic city

Future Islands - “Tybee Island”

now I’m safe / now I’m grave / now I’m safe and I walk away / if my head slips beneath the sand

The National - “Santa Clara”

I’m gonna run to the river, kiss my hand and wave / gonna run to the river, gonna throw a blue bouquet / cause they’re gonna be cool, happy, genius heroes / I’m gonna miss ‘em so much

Bon Iver - “Brackett, W9”

and every summer is a hot token / to the cold, cold take of lust / and every autumn singes / with the business of sadness / friend had it wrong they see / honey let it burn / and the curve in the county / is never served

Neko Case - “Things That Scare Me”

the hammer clicks in place / the world’s gonna pay / right down in the face of God and his saints / claim your soul’s not for sale / I’m a dying breed who still believes / haunted by American dreams

Antony & Bryce Dessner - “I Was Young When I Left Home”

I was young when I left home / and I been out a-ramblin’ round / and I never wrote a letter to my home 

Calexico - “Contention City”

through miles of waste to cross upstream  / risking all dreams for what the surface brings  / free like a flow that pours from your hand / claiming its own new river
