They don't write 'em like this anymore

Well, maybe Willie still does, but this is a real keeper.

Norah Jones did a great version.

I like this one too, but the talented cutie pie Diana Krall:

I think Willie approves, as well.

A couple of thoughts.

Willie Nelson is one of the greatest lyricists who has ever lived. In his prime he had a good, but not great voice, but his lyrics will last forever.

No one, male or female, can touch Cline's version. It wasn't just her voice, but the arrangement was terrific. Ironically she hated it at first. However her producer had it right and it was her second largest hit.
