Actually, there are two sets of lyrics- the one with Lanois and Harris is the version Emmylou recorded (I think Christine Collister as well); David's original version- really, they just added/did lyric revisions to it- is just Olney. (Hard ball music.) It's been recorded by him several times, originally on the Deeper Well album and live on Women Across the River. David commented that when Emmylou wanted to record this and wanted to change some of the lyrics, he said, "hmmm, lemme think about that and call you back." Which he followed with, "And that is how you get Emmylou Harris's phone number."

For those interested, David has a new album coming out on February 11th and will be touring in the spring.
