A demo version of this song can be found on Phil's "The Broadside Tapes I" album, with the initial lyrics. Bob recorded the song in 1974. Here is a slideshow of Phil and Bob doing this song together.
According to allmusic, this song was also recorded by the Mitchell Trio, the Back Porch Majority, Lee Mallory, Jose Feliciano, Glenn Yarbrough, John Denver, Curt Boettcher and Bob Cook. I don't know who Bob Cook is, he recorded the song on an album called "Love Is a Verb".
