sorry-but NO ONE will ever be able to hold a candle to the version by Mississippi John Hurt. Sends chills up my spine. I love Lucinda Williams but not on this track.
Have posted the hurt lots of times. Needed a woman's voice after writing about me mither.
oh...'the hurt'...missed it the first time. Got it, you hipster. For cry fest o rama, why not stick to Billy Holliday or Nina Simone? Lucinda's great guitar parts sort of distract and uplift. Billie and Nina do neither...pure sob fest.
appreciate your effusive sensitivity, Stan.
