Just to add a little more history to this song, the tune was actually
lifted from a B. Dylan tune. The song is "Shelter From the Storm" on
the _Blood on the Tracks_ album. (I pretty sure it's that song, I haven't
listened to either in a while, but I'm sure that there is a dylan rip-off
on that album _Big Questions_)
