How perfect is this. Stately, elegant and achingly gorgeous all at once yet there's hurt, I mean real wide-eyed pain, beneath everything. If you listen to this and Johnny Cash's "Hurt" together you're going to need therapy, but I recommend the experience. A big shout-out to Neil Young for his songwriting genius and his backing vocal. Just shows how the old folks can still teach the young dogs a thing or two.

I heart Emmylou. Saw her once, and it was definitely not enough. She performed this song, though. I was thrilled.

What a masterpiece.

It puts me in mind of Scorcese's "The Last Waltz", where long ago the two shared the same stage and sang their hearts out.

Thanks for this. Perfect for my day reckoning. (Sorry for the bad pun)
