“Cash On the Barrelhead,” Emmylou and Rodney Crowell in Germany, 1977


I had not realized there were so many versions of this old song.  Looking for the Country Gentlemen, I find Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band, featuring Rodney Crowell on guitar and some great steel player (who?).  Recorded from a German television broadcast, 1977.

My favorite line:  “That’ll be cash on the barrelhead, son.  This old grey dog, she gets paid to run.”

    That was probably Hank DeVito on the steel guitar.
