Subject: RE: Casey's last ride - meaning?
Tinker, I think you take too dark a view of the song, although I think your perspective is valid. I think all of us have had loves that didn't work out for one reason or another, but we're still plagued by dreams of that lover and how it could have been - even if we've gone on to a happy life with somebody else.

I've sometimes wondered how it would have been if things had worked out with Emmylou and me. Her recording of this song, is one of the sexiest recordings I've ever heard.
