share your favorite folk song.

we can't go back in time , we cant fully understand how it was like centuries ago. but i think folk music can absolutely make us feel like the people then.we can feel for them.
noone knows who composed the folk songs.im not sure only one composed it. it was just a melody in the begining but the folk retouched it everytime they sing during decades which makes these folk songs perfect. Folk music posseses the happiness ,sorrow, excitement , despair of the ones before you. may be thats why its the only kind of music that can pull at your heartstrings easily.
enough of preach :) , i wonder whats your favorite folk song if you re interested in folk music. here is one of my favorite turkish folk music

hawai'i Aloha is very good!

Israel Kamakawiwi'ole didn't write it, but he definitely does it justice. You may have heard this from him. It's one of his most well known covers.

Bruce Penninsula

Takes on an identity comparable to old American folk and spirituals.

Rosie I have no words for the ominous and despairing effect the drone in this song has on me.
