American Music: “Night Rider’s Lament” – Nanci Griffith

Not many songs have their own website, but this one does. Lyrics and music of this classic are by Michael Burton. This cover by Nanci Griffith is one of my favourites. And there’s yodelling too.

It’s been done by Garth Brooks, Jerry Jeff Walker, and many others. I believe it was written in the mid-70s.

You can find words and music in the key of D here.
