    Girl From The North Country - The Black Crowes

    Just perfect.
    Have you ever heard Dylan's version? (from The Freewheelin Bob Dylan)

    No cover can ever come anywhere close to this.
    I totally agree

    Dylan did another version of this song for his "Nashville Skyline" album with Johnny Cash - love that version too.
