American Folk Song
I remember singing this southern Appalachian folk song as a kid in elementary music class and it stuck in my head every since! It is also often titled: “Every Night When the Sun Goes In”. It's a very beautiful yet plaintive melody. My simple arrangement features the acoustic guitar with trombones.
Shelby Flint does a beautiful version of the tune, a few other versions are listed below as well.
The term Marbletown is referring to the graveyard. She is speaking of dying. The gravestones were made of marble and the cemetery is a small town of marble with many souls dwelling there. This is a desperately sad traditional folk song about a young girl who becomes pregnant and finds that the father of the child will have nothing to do with her once he finds out.
