Subject: name a Gillian Welch cover

Can anybody name the tune Gillian Welch does live that was written by Charlie Monroe's wife, about the reality vs. the expectations of married life? It starts with the lyrics:

I hate to see the sun sink low Just for a thought; you ought to know That it's your love I can't forget All of my sorrow you'll soon regret

And ends with:

They'll go away and leave you home They'll never care if you're alone They seem to forget they've got a wife This story's sad but it's a true life

The song is "True Life Blues" and I think Bill and Charlie may have had a bit of a disagreement on authorship. They apparently disagreed on a lot of things.

TRUE LIFE BLUES
Bill Monroe

I hate to see the sun sink low,
Just for a cause you ought to know.
For it's true love I can't forget.
All of my sorrow you'll soon regret.

You promised me love that was true,
And I'm sorry to say that I believed in you.
It's all turned out just like a dream,
Left me so sad in the world it seems.

There's dishes to wash and a house to clean.
There's washing to do. Oh, it seems so mean.
There's a million words I can't explain.
Think of this, girl, before you change your name.

They'll go away and leave you at home.
They never care if you're alone.
They seem to forget they've got a wife.
This story is sad, but it's a true life.
