There isn’t a finer country singer in my mind.  Her voice is always haunting, and when she wants it to be erry, she sure knows how to make it so.  Sunday mornings are always better with a little Alison Krauss in them – FATS


Alison Krauss’ eery version of this song is the most famous, as her naturally haunting voice is best-suited for the story. She could be using the lyrics to this 1999 track as a metaphor for how she feels after the end of a long, hot love. Many, however, like to believe she’s actually playing the part of a spooky figure who roams around the house she once called her happy home.
