Einfach und gefühlvoll gehaltenes Cover nur mit Gitarre und der hohen Tenorstimme von dem amerikanischen Liedermacher.
Hat auch in dieser Version hohe Intensität und überwältigt geeradezu mit seinem Gefühl von Verlassenheit und Lebensverzweiflung. Liegt natürlich auch an dem ziemlich schnörkellosen Text:

"Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down
The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below
Following their footsteps through the neon-darkened corridors
Of silent desperation, never speakin' to a soul
The poison air he's breathin' has the dirty smell of dying
'Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain
But Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
Of the clickin' of the turnstiles and the rattle of his chains

“Oh!” she said, “Casey, it's been so long since I've seen you!”
“Here” she said, “just a kiss to make a body smile!”
“See” she said, “I've put on new stockings just to please you!”
“Lord!” she said, “Casey, can you only stay a while?”

Casey leaves the under-ground and stops inside the Golden Crown
For something wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bone
Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men
Who reach for any thing they can to keep from goin' home
Standin' in the corner Casey drinks his pint of bitter
Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by
Then he stumbles as he's leaving and he wonders if the reason
Is the beer that's in his belly, or the tear that's in his eye

“Oh!” she said, “Casey, it's been so long since I've seen you!”
“Here” she said, “just a kiss to make a body smile!”
“See” she said, “I've put on new stockings just to please you!”
“Lord!” she said, “Casey, can you only stay a while?”

Schöne Version. Finde allerdings die von Kristofferson noch etwas berührender.
