I've been singing this for years. Love the song. I first heard it when I was a teenager & it's haunted me ever since.

I first heard it on a Waylon Jennings album in 1977, at the height of "Urban Cowboy mania". It sounded mildly interesting to me then, a folk song, sort of, and I liked those sometimes.

 

But I didn't really understand it until I'd spent a few nights awake while my wife and her kids slept, remembering things from before I even met them, and feeling the tension between the life behind and the life ahead a man who has "settled down" can feel sometimes.

 

Amazing song.

Always remember that you are unique. Just like everyone else.

It's on a backup disk somewhere, Caev, if I come across it soon I'll put it up for you.

 

I'm putting Ubuntu Linux on soon, so it may happen!!!

I'd heard it a bunch but this was the first time I heard it that way, too...

 

Similarly, I'd played "Angel From Montgomery" for years because people requested it, and one night a few years ago I understood each word for the first time more profoundly as they came out of my mouth.
