(June 8, 2014): Bobby Bare – 500 Miles

From the 1963 album, 500 Miles Away From Home.  This Hedy West tune was the single (Detroit City b/side) from the album (with tweaked lyrics) and reached number 10 in the U.S. charts.  It was part of the repertoire of the early 60s folk revival first appearing on the 1961 debut album of the Journeymen and the 1962 debut of Peter, Paul and Mary.

 

More recently an original version by Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan & Stark Sands figured in the Coen Brother’s movie, Inside Llewyn Davis.
