Bob Dylan [outtake Time Out Of Mind, saved up for Tell Tale Signs - Bootleg Series Vol 8; still, there's more going on here: his version was melodically inspired by The Girl On The Greenbriar Shore, also covered (live) on Bootleg Series Vol 8; Dylan knew this saga from both the Minstrels and the Lomax collection]

There's a Girl On The Greenbriar Shore by The Carter Family ('41 - Columbia), Ralph Stanley and Tom Paley.
