Jim Ford, Album Harlan County. Harlan County Lyrics. In the back hills of Kentucky I was raised In a shack on Big Bone Mountain Born into poverty, bathed in misery The times I went hungry you can’t count ‘em. Where the cold winds blow and the crops don’t grow A man’s tired of livin’ when he’s twenty I was diggin’ hard coal at twelve years old Way down in Harlan County. Mama tried hard, poor ol’ Daddy got tired Couldn’t even get a job with a shotgun One winter I was out cuttin’ kindlin’ The news came to Mama that mornin’. They had a penny ante poker game down at the junction Big.

Harlan County, the only album he ever completed, captures Ford at both extremes. The laid-back, rootsy sound of Harlan County - equal parts country-rock, soul, and pop - provided a touchstone for British pub rock, especially for Brinsley Schwarz, which covered Ford's "JuJu Man" and "Niki Hoeke Speedway" (Brinsley's chief songwriter, Nick Lowe, later recorded "36 Inches High"). Those songs aren't on 1969's Harlan County; they're from an aborted 1971 record that was to feature the Brinsleys as Ford's backing band. They are of interest as a curiosity, especially for pub rock fanatics, but Harlan County illustrates why Jim Ford never became a cult artist in his own right. Stephen Thomas Erlewine.

Jim Ford - Harlan County. Album: Harlan County, 1969. absolute classic country soul track from 1969.

Jim Ford meant a lot of things to a lot of different people. Sly Stone claimed Ford was his best friend, Nick Lowe name checks him as a major inspiration, and British mod band the Koobas recorded an entire album of Harlan County songs (The Koobas even went as far as to change their name to Harlan County). His unique brand of nk has proven to be original and very influential. The Harlan County LP was released by White Whale in 1969 and is evenly divided between covers and Jim Ford originals.
