Not his little tale of woe

Still, I’m thinking that Leon Redbone pretty much owned this song long before this live show in Nashville:

Redbone first recorded it in 1977, for his second album (Double Time). Really, nobody else need bother.

    Good, thanks, though I still like to hear a good barbershop quartet do it.

    Always did like Leon Redbone; he inhabited that interesting-glimpse-into-an-alternate-musical universe that Postmodern Jukebox and a few others still do. (I also LOVE deep-voiced men singing, so there was automatic appeal even if I weren’t interested in the whole “Tin Pan Alley revival”)
