Songs from the Wood" is the title track off of English rock band Jethro Tull's album Songs from the Wood. Written by frontman Ian Anderson, it features a folk-rock style that characterizes the Songs from the Wood album. Inspired by English folk tradition, the song was named by Ian Anderson as one of his top Jethro Tull songs. The song has since received critical acclaim and was released as a single in New Zealand in 1977.

The album is considered to be the first of a trio of folk rock albums: Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses (1978) and Stormwatch (1979). On the album cover appears an extended title line: Jethro Tull-with kitchen prose, gutter rhymes and divers-Songs from the Wood. The title track of the album contain two of these phrases in its lyrics. The UK music-paper adverts read: Jethro Tull present ‘Songs From The Wood’. A new album of Old Magic. It’s inspired by the thought that perhaps nature isn’t as gentle as we’d like to believe.

Songs from the Wood – десятый студийный альбом британской рок-группы Jethro Tull, выпущенный на лейбле Chrysalis 11 февраля 1977 года. Этот альбом стал первым из трёх фолк-рок альбомов группы (последующими стали альбомы Heavy Horses и Stormwatch), хотя фолк-элементы присутствовали в творчестве группы и до этих релизов, и после них. Songs from the Wood стал первым альбомом группы, получившим абсолютное большинство позитивных отзывов со времени выхода альбома Thick as a Brick в 1972 году. Все песни написаны Йеном Андерсоном. Songs From The Wood - 4:52. Jack-In-The-Green - 2:27. Cup Of Wonder - 4:30. Ring Out, Solstice Bells - 3:43. Pibroch (Cap In Hand) - 8:27. Fire At Midnight - 2:26.

The group's sound was never more carefully balanced between acoustic folk and hard rock - the result is an album that sounds a great deal like the work of Tull's Chrysalis Records labelmates Steeleye Span (though Nigel Pegrum never attacked his cymbals - or his entire drum kit - with Barriemore Barlow's ferocity).

Jethro Tull’s tenth album was inspired by Ian Anderson’s departure to a more rural environment in a transition which bore clear influence on the writing and recording process, with the band notably doffing a cap to British folklore and countryside. Songs From The Wood is often referred to as one of the most commercially appealing Jethro Tull albums, containing elements of rock, prog and folk-rock. Although media reaction at the time divided opinion, the album has certainly developed a nostalgic rapport with fans through the years and it is perceived today as one of the band’s most popular albums.

Although Songs From The Wood does show Jethro Tull going in a more acoustic-oriented direction, guitarist Martin Barre makes sure that his input remains significant, as his soaring riffs and solos can be often seen intertwining with Anderson’s acoustic guitar or flute. Lyrically, the album also is more woodsy, as the songs now speak of things like fireplaces and aimless trips through woodlands, a sharp contrast to Anderson’s ancient musings on London life and bitter attacks on organized religion. Songs From The Wood is (not without reason) the first Jethro Tull album in ages that received a noteworthy amount of positive feedback from professional critics. Happy that for the first time in years, one of their albums was well received, Jethro Tull would continue down this direction with their next two albums, Heavy Horses and the underwhelming Stormwatch.
