    General CommentI always got something a little differen't from this song than what the previous commentor stated. I never used to know the lyrics apart from the bit when he song "someday you you to lay down and die" That line is so powerful and sad. It reminds me of the futility that is felt in life, and skip james always portrayed this in his songs. His voice always represents how overwhelmingly fragile you can feel. His guitar, it cries, it weeps. All of his songs have a sense of "ultimately futility in the end". I love the name of this song too, Crow Jane, renders a sense of dark loneliness.
