oh yeah, sorry... i knew it was written by leon payne, i'm not even sure if it's his version i'm thinking of... i was really just wondering if anyone might have had an mp3 or something...

fourteen years pass...

The algorithm just fed me Jack Kittel's version from the mid-seventies, which I think was the first one to be some kind of hit or get some kind of airplay or something or maybe it's just some people's favorite. There do seem to be a bunch of versions out there, as pointed out, um, upthread, including by Elvis Costello and Andre Williams.

Guess the Teddy Thompson version is from the Gus Van Zant movie.

This song is like a condensed Jim Thompson novel.

The Jack Kittel version sounds a lot like Elvis. Presley, that is.
