It was originally recorded by Tanya Tucker, but was never released until it appeared on her self-titled 1995 box set. Her version included a fourth verse which Brooks himself intended to use on his version but did not at the suggestion of producer Allen Reynolds. A modernized version was recorded[when?] by Jet Black Stare, but without the fourth verse. Metalcore band All That Remains released a cover of the song on April 28, 2017 on their eight studio album, Madness.
