Murder-Song Monday: Henry Lee

'Henry Lee.' This song appears on Crooked Still's most recent album, but I've already featured them once in this series, so here's Nick Cave doing the dirty work. Scottish ballads filtered down along the Appalachians from Nova Scotia to Georgia, and settled in the dells and hollows like dry leaves. Amazing how many songs tell this story of love and murder.
