I’m very fond of this song, maybe for personal reasons. But I was also a huge fan of Utah Phillips who wrote it. You should look into him, Six.
In his late years he did a fucking tour with Ani DiFranco, as oddball a pair as you can imagine, and they made it work.
Keillor probably got the idea for this duet from the duet Utah recorded with Priscilla Herdman, whose bathwater I would drink if she sang to me.
She wrote a couple of new verses, which are also in the Keillor-Peterson cover.
I finally found it on Youtube again
The Utah one is EXCELLENT, But I just like the other one.
It’s a great song, both covers are good.
