Originally performed by Roger Miller and then by Gordon Lightfoot along with many others to follow. Thanks for the correction Eileen. Kris and Fred, certainly deserve credit for the song that they wrote, although you must admit, Janis made it famous. Interesting to find out, that Kristofferson did not know about her covering the song, until the day after her unfortunate death at the young age of 27. Seems like 27 has been an age that many quite accomplished artists have died. Amazing what tidbits of info can be found from Wikipedia!
Hope that life is getting back to normal for you all over there, and that everything continues be well.
