I haven't heard the Archie Fisher version but, if he leaves out the part about shooting the dog...that's the crux of the whole song right there! I mean here's this powerful guy, he's got acres of land and men he commands, and still he's broken up because he had to shoot his dog. It kills me every time I hear it. (Iknownobody'sinterestedinmybandbut)By the way, regarding a woman singing this song...my wife sings it in our band (Pipsqueak) and it would tear your heart out.
