Country music part 1 of (wishing for an ASCII infinity symbol for the trillionth time)

I was listening to some country music I was exposed to when I was young and I thought I should share this particular song. Kathy Mattea's "Lawrence Jones" is an example of the music that cuts through the divide between labor and conservative. A working knowledge of Harlan County Kentucky and it's relevance to the labor movement is helpful in putting this song and album in context.
