    Great solo...I sometimes forget that it was Buck that taught Don lead guitar. And Don Rich picked it up and ran with it. ;)

    See, now ain't folks different...
    Red's version has me choked up, every time, well before the punchline. His version seems to have an honest, low-key delivery that just gets straight to me.

    Mr. Waits' just seems like he's tryin' too hard, from start to finish. Embellishing something that don't need it.

    I think it's the arrangement that does it for me, more than the vocal.

    This thread kept me up until 1 a.m. last night o_O. Listening to some stuff I knew and lots that was new...

    Thanks to whoever posted that Sturgill Simpson song. Somehow missed him, and now I'm listening to that album right now :).

    Also Little Feat! Haven't thought about them in years. Played with a buddy who loved them 20 yrs ago. Love threads like this.

    Jackson Browne - Shaky Town. Generally spoke about how a trucker may have seen things...
