One of my favorite songs is Steve Earle's Ellis Unit One. I wonder if most people prefer the original version or the version with the Fairfield Four off of Johnny Too Bad and Sidetracks?

I've written about the song on my chimesfreedom.com website:

I don't really have a favorite version of Steve's Ellis Unit One, although I do kinda like the Fairfield Four singing in the background with Steve. I feel like it adds something to the music, almost like a church chorus saying I wish none of this would ever happen and people would stop hurting each other. Just trying to transfer my perception on the matter to the song I suppose. But I do know that when I put the cd of the Dead Man Walking Soundtrack (Solo version) in my cd player in my car I thought I heard a low bass voice singing the words "Swing Low" with him. I did'nt hear it on my boombox.???? As Steve says,(I'll use his phrase in this instance for own expression), Don't know what is up with that. Did anyone else hear it??? Oh well, maybe it is just the bass in my car. Some of my favorites songs are Tanytown, Even when she's Blue, The Hard Way, there are so many others I could go on and on.(Sounds like that is what I am doing, so I will close this out now so I won't talk people's ears off. Oh, I do believe I read that Steve likes the Fairfield Four version.
