Carolina Chocolate Drops, “Leaving Eden”
And the mockingbird can sing / Like the crying of the dove / And I can’t tell my daughters / All the things that I am scared of / But I am not afraid of that bright glory up above / Dying’s just another way to lead the ones you love
I can see Katniss singing this ditty straight out of District 12 to her little Mellark babies in the Meadow as Peeta rocks them to sleep.
(P.S. If you aren’t listening to the Carolina Chocolate Drops, what are you doing with your life? If you like alt-country, bluegrass, rock, etc., you will dig this band. It reminds me of the music from the Land of the Pines and evokes so many good feelings.)
