Interesting story to this song. People like to say that Bob Dylan wrote it but that’s only half true. He wrote the chorus for the western movie “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid” and left it incomplete. Ketch Secor from Old Crow Medicine Show wrote verses to go with Dylan’s choruses and the rest is southern liberal arts school sorority chick history.
Here’s some band called Southern Drive on the campus at Southern Methodist University doing a superb cover, making it their own. Good job y’all. This is the perfect first entry for Open Mic Mondays.
