“Pocahontas” Performed by Gillian Welch & David Rawlings

on

“Pocahontas” is a song written by Neil Young that was first released on his 1979 album Rust Never Sleeps. 
From the moment Welch’s voice first breaks, the listener knows they are hearing something live, vulnerable, and real. That moment embodies everything about Neil Young’s “Pocahontas” and more: the warm hook of Young’s original song, Rawling’s attempt to resuscitate an old harmonica, and an aching apology (partly inspired by this) of heartbreak and regret.
