Pre-Halloween Ghost Song

So, in the Steanso tradition of bringing you songs of the supernatural and occasionally spooky during October, I bring you "Eli, The Barrow Boy" by The Decemberists.  It's a song of tragic love, premature death, and, of course, haunting.  It sort of falls into a tradition of mournful ghost stories, I suppose.  The instrumentation features the prominent use of the rarely seen (or heard) hurdy gurdy!  Take a moment out and enjoy!
