Yankee Bayonet by The Decemberists

Album: The Crane WifeReleased: 2006
  • This song about a soldier in the American Civil War, and takes place in the battle of Manassas. The soldier's wife is sitting on a blanket watching the battle take place, which many people did at the time. She is pregnant with their child, and watches her husband die in battle. She says he will come back on the breath of the wind. >>
