Look at Miss Ohio


There is a song by Gillian Welch called Look at Miss Ohio, and it is full of the heartbreak and yearning of the Midwest, as well as the Ohio of the Civil War. Every time I drive through this state and look up at the stars, I think of this song and how perfectly grounded and suited it is to this most American of states; how the longing in one woman’s heart can, at that moment, seem like one we all share. It is a brilliant bit of songwriting that makes kin of us all.

This piece is about that lovely song.
