Girl in the Garden

Album: For the Girl in the Garden (2006)
  • "Girl in the Garden" was written in the same month as "Mandolin Holy Man" and "Valkyrie Daughter." It was written about Catherynne M. Valente's book The Orphan's Tales and was, in fact, written in the novelist's basement. Valente granted S. J. Tucker permission to write songs about any of her work. The writer cried the first time Tucker played the song for her.
