Thanks for the research Mike, I appreciate it. My main association with the song is through the Harris album and I have heard it a few other times, but always with the other verse. When I looked this one up on the Phillips Songbook, knowing Kendall would probably prefer that (after all, its Kendall), I never paid any attention to the fact that the verse was missing. NANCY KING!!! Thanks for noticing!!!

Typically for most of us, when a major such as Harris does a song, we sometimes mistakenly assume it's as is, and in truth, Emmylou is pretty good about sticking to "original" lyrics most of the time. I was curious if writing credit was ever given and I appreciate your prompt answer Mike.......Thanks Mike.
