Goin’ Out West

I have never heard the original version of this song.  It’s not like it’s hard to find (it popped up in the “Related Videos” section), it’s more of a lack of desire.  I have a great amount of respect for Tom Waits as a songwriter, but what other people have done with his music just blows me away.

Gov’t Mule’s wasn’t the first version I fell for either.  It was a random Widespread Panic track I used to have before my old computer died and I used to listen to it all the time.  I gotta say though – Warren Haynes and company really do a great job.
