I also heard it on the DP show. It is catchy
It is originally a Dillon song, but he was in London and only played the verse for 30 seconds as a tribute to someone from London, not a Dillon song then I guess. Someone from the first band the sang it heard the Dillon bootleg and made the rest of the song. Or that is what I have been told.

I mean - is this really a question? OCMS's version is A LOT better than Darius. A LOT.

Its a great song by OCMS.

For awhile, it seemed like every musician in town was covering it. Then Sirius Coffeehouse got ahold of it in 2009 or so, which was on constantly at the bar where I worked, and they smothered it to death. It's a good song, but it's not the kind of thing that's going to grow with repeated listens. It's all right there the first time through.

Didn't know about it coming from a kernel of Dylan's until this thread. Interesting.

 
Both versions are pretty damn sweet.

Good old timey music.

Reminds me of something you might have heard on the Pappy O'Daniel Flour Hour.

Youre joking here, right?

Katie Sunshines best hoop video ever is set to a cover of that. Count me in as a big fan of OCMS and the song.

 
Caught a little of his show tonight in a smaller venue not too far from my house. He's a great singer and performer. I really like the song.

Ageed.The hootie version does the song a disservice.
How's that? Old Crow is much more twangy, but Rucker's is more "modern country." If you're a hardcore country fan from way back, I can see where you're coming from, but I haven't seen many of those around here. Darius does a good job with this song, nowhere near a "disservice".
 
Its a good song either way, but I like the OCMS version better. Fun and easy song to play on the guitar. Can never have enough of those. Hootie is another one of those performers that gets an unreasonable amount of hate. thanks for the post.

 
I hadn't heard Hootie's version until this thread. There is no point in it beyond money. He adds absolutely nothing to the song. In fact, he completely homogenizes it. Not good, not terrible. Just...there.

Hootie's version is appalling.

Edit to add:

No comparison on the video.. Hootie's has Duck Dynasty!! :thumbup:

1st question has the most shocking poll result ever for me in the history of the site. Did a triple take I think.
