Listen to “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” as sung by Dave Alvin, heard in the ‘Justified’ Season 4 finale
The FX show Justified has come to be regarded as one of the best dramas on television today, if not of all time. One staple of the show has been the song “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” starting up over the closing moments of the season, with the ending of Season 3 being a notable exception. The season 4 finale of the show revisited this tradition, with a third artist’s voice rising as the season drew to a close; with Darrell Scott’s version bookending the first season, and Brad Paisley’s version playing over the final scene of the second, the honours this time around went to Dave Alvin, who manages to infuse the song with a distinct energy that sets it apart from the previous versions used on the show. The song can be heard below in its entirety.
