Let's be clear. The Marti Jones version, released in 1988, is absolutely a cover of Don Dixon's version. I am OPENLY posting a cover here, and not on Totally Covered.
However, Marti Jones brought a feel to her husband's song that was simply transcendent. It is a desperate, haunting song that I cannot get enough of, to this day. Also, this version adds a bridge, which absolutely adds to the mysterious appeal of this simple folk song.
Of course, this doesn't mean the Don Dixon version sucks. It's amazing. Here it is. It is a much simpler song in its arrangement - which is why it doesn't get top billing on this post.
