Swan: I've heard Steve Earle sing it live and I think you'll be okay with "loaded".
I've always enjoyed playin' it but ya' gotta keep yer (copper)head on it. You can't fake it 'cause the words come fast and furious. I don't play mandolin but play it in D Model tuning my way. It's still Steve Earle'ish but badly Boberdized.
I love the song but, heck, there ain't much that Steve has written that I don't love. I was the one who stared the "Favorite Steve Earle Song" thread.
Speakin' of Steve Erale, Mudcat has it's Eric Kelly, who has a real DSteve Earle sound of his own. He sent me a CD and I loved it....
