When I was asked to do this tribute, I was somewhere in Denmark. I picked Capo right away. I recorded this song very, very simply, just one guitar and my voice and my harmonica. I did it one night in the winter, it was freezing and quiet and late, like it always is when this kind of song is written or recorded.

To me Capo says, "I'm trying... I'm doing my best, but it's hard...
