Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Ray LaMontagne’s “Jolene”

With a voice like a raspy whisper, the soulful Ray LaMontagne sings "Jolene," whose lyrics depict a man who’s down and out yet clinging to memories of love represented by a photo: “I found myself face down in the ditch, with booze in my hair and blood on my lips. A picture of you, holding a picture of me in the pocket of my blue jeans.”
