Subject: RE: Origin: Long Black Veil
My version of the Goodman song goes:

I got drunk the day my Ma got outta prison
Took my dog & went to fetch her in the rai-ai-ai-ain
But before I could pick her up
In my good old pickup truck
She went & got run over by a damned old train

At this point I don't know if I heard Steve do it like this or its mine own embellishment.
