A great cover of the Elvis song. Both this and the other great song, “Suspicious Minds”, were written by Mark James, who is obviously a great songwriter, but I have never even heard of him. Hell, he only wrote two of the greatest songs ever written!
Elvis hardly wrote any of his own songs. All he did was cover other people’s stuff, or he had songwriters write stuff for him. But so what!
This is almost better than Elvis’ version, and the live version is at least as good as the studio version, which is unusual in music. I am not the biggest Willie Nelson fan, but this song is simply golden and eternal. This man has some real talent.
