Monday Music: Mississippi (Dylan)

"Mississippi" is a track from Bob Dylan's 2001 album, "Love and Theft." Here's a little background from Wikipedia:

"Love and Theft becomes his Fables of the Reconstruction, to borrow an R.E.M. album title", writes Greg Kot in The Chicago Tribune (published September 11, 2001), "the myths, mysteries and folklore of the South as a backdrop for one of the finest roots rock albums ever made."


The Bob Dylan version has apparently been axed, but here is Sheryl Crow's version:
