    Many folks have done this tune. I've always really liked this song. I guess I've been in a ballad and slide mood lately. After a couple of weeks of biz travel I had some time this weekend so into the home studio I went. This is what came out. It's not perfect but it's not meant to be. I hope that you like it. Constructive criticism and comments welcomed. Thanks for listening!

    Here's the remix with the drums up 3dB per comments below. I also increased the slide just a dB or so. Thank you so much for your feedback

    Nice. The drums seem weak- I am a product of the 80s with strong drums. IMO they could be increased in volume and intensity (e.g., more bass drum... and more cowbell :p )
    Great job. Enjoyed it.
