You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive

Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
And the sun goes down about three in the day
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinking
And you spend your life just thinkin’ of how to get away

Another great cover of “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” to close out another great season of Justified, still one of the best shows on television.

In the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky
That’s the place where I trace my bloodline
And it’s there I read on a hillside gravestone
You will never leave Harlan alive

Watch on

Today I fell in love. I remember why I do what I do, why I listen to what I listen and why I believe in what I believe. 

Today was a good day. Beautiful weather and hell of a good show. Ruby Friedman Orchestra and Eastern Conference Champions were amazing.
