This song was made most famous by Janis Joplin who changed the lyrics and sang it about a boy. It was written by Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster and originally recorded by Roger Miller and later by others including Kris Kristofferson, Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, and Gordon Lightfoot. Miller's version went to #12 on the US Country charts in '69. Joplin's Version wasn't released until '71
