Can't choose between all these gems:

And all I've done for want of wit/ to memory now I can't recall (The Parting Glass, trad.)

By love's light my foot finds the old pathway to thee (Bheir Me O, trad.)

My heart's a boat in tow (Loch Tay Boat Song, trad.)

With heather honey taste upon each name (The Road to the Isles, McLeod/Kennedy-Fraser)

The fallen leaves that jewel the ground/ they know the art of dying,
And leave with joy their glad gold hearts/ in the scarlet shadows lying (R Williamson)

They're all dressed up in feathers with colors outrageous,
they soar from this earthly-bound kingdom of cages
on delicate wings, so small and courageous (Wild Birds, Jan Harmon)

And her own dark hair like clouds over fields in May (Raglan Road, P Kavanaugh)

I never got to Heaven but I stayed out of Hell, and still I'm on my way (Blackbird, J Goodenough)

She's finer than a frog hair split four ways (The Deed and the Dollar)
Sung by Shooter Jennings, but who wrote it? Can anyone tell me? You must agree it's brilliant.
