    It’s one of my favorite songs of all time. Really hits a melancholy chord with me, but in a good way. I like Johnny Cash’s version best, perhaps.

    Honestly, I really did not remember this song's melody, so much as I knew title, being on Jeff Beck' s Wired album.

    I think Peter Buck was kind of a genius.

    I'm late to the party and have not gone though 3 pages of posts, but i'll add (if not yet) a couple of songs my uncle sang back in the early 60's, (that got me into guitar a year before the Beatles rocked my word and cemented things) were Green Back Dollar" by the Kingston Trio and "Green, Green, it's green they say" by the New Christie Minstrels"....along with 'Rock Island Line" those rocked my world.....before The Beatles, of course!

    And if you think Steve Vai is a great player, here's another "green" tune from a band with one of the best live guitarists ever. Grab ahold of something solid and click the PLAY arrow:
