And here's the Highwaymen, singing Highwayman:

I like this, partly because it's kewl - you mean you didn't know Country was kewl?

Partly because I love Willie Nelson's singing - unrelated to the music yet perfectly on-beat - and then for some other reasons. There's an occasional commentator on this blog called Kes, who I happen to know in Real Life. I played her this tune, and as Waylon Jennings started singing I said "Ah yes, Johnny Cash. Unmistakable." Even when she found a video of the performance she had the delicacy not to point out my, ah... premature attribution.
