Another of Townes van Zandt's songs that, in his own words, were not sad, but, rather, hopeless.

This is "Nothing". Allison Kraus and Robert Plant covered it recently, but the original stripped down rendition with Townes's voice that had seen things no man should see... it sends a chill down your back that the cover, as beautiful as it is, simply doesn't do.
