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.”
- Emmylou coming to New Braunfels, Texas, at Gruene Hall, June 1, 2012
- It’s a Louvin Brothers tune originally
- Gram Parsons recorded it on Grievous Angel, with Emmylou — back in 1973
