Country Club #3: Long Black Veil

Johnny Cash performed "The Long Black Veil" with Joni Mitchell on the first episode of his CBS show in 1969. It was originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell in 1959. It was a bit of departure from Frizzell's honky-tonk sound. In 1968, the song appeared on The Band's Music from Big Pink and Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison.
