Nanci sings, Deadwood,South Dakota

When I was in my mid 20's, I got really into Nanci Griffith. She was just a little sweetheart. I loved her music. Of course, no one else but myself in LA would admit to liking Nanci Griffith, and because of that, I saw her live about 12 times, 3 or 4 times in the front row of little clubs and even in the front row of some well known dive on Hollywood Blvd whose name slips my mind.
Now the first time I heard this song, it brought tears to my eyes, and tonight while I was browsing on Youtube, actually looking for some Kate Wolf music, I ran across this performance.
It's lovely, and it still brings tears to my eyes, only this time, Little Rita saw me tearing up, poked fun and me and the song. She was, no doubt, waiting for the mandatory rap solo which never came.
I hope you will enjoy this as much as I do. Tell me if it makes you cry.
