Subject: RE: Casey's last ride - meaning?
I've been intrigued by this song since discovering it in a Kristofferson song book years ago. Emmylou's version is a fine interpretation but I also like versions by Dorothy Hamm and June Tabor. Tabor does a very sultry take on the song. Do not care for the Everly's interpretation and Denver's is a little too sweet. Johnny Cash is about what one would expect from him. Dorothy Hamm's version is my personal favorite.

Dave, thanks for bringing this up.
