What I’m Listening To 08/13/2018: Willie Watson-Gallows Pole

You might know this song, as Led Zeppelin made it popular to mainstream audiences back in their day, but you might not know it’s a very old traditional folk tune dating back centuries.  This song isn’t going to put you in a good mood, or get your heart beating and feet tapping but the haunting croon of Willie Watson is the exact medium to tell the story of a guy about to be hanged.
