The folk music of North America was born in the expressions of unsophisticated people who faced the raw and untamed beauty of mountains, plains and river beds. Most are work songs in origin, or the laments of an unjust life in bondage to man or nature. All have a plaintive, melodic line; all have a simple chord structure upon which all our present popular songs are written.
