Dolly Parton - Mountain Angel

Dolly Parton's 2001 album Little Sparrow was the second of a bluegrass trilogy that also includes The Grass Is Blue (1999) and Halos & Horns (2002). The first two are pretty much flawless, and one of the best songs on all these records is "Mountain Angel", a Parton original about a woman who loses her mind when her lover leaves her, fleeing into the woods and living alone for the rest of her days. It reads like a sad and sorry folk tale, told in Parton's sweet, crystal clear voice, set to a wonderful melody and an acoustic arrangement. Below is a live version lifted from a 2009 DVD called Dolly Parton & Friends: Love Always - Live From Texas.
