The only other band that does this song justice is THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND
A party sing a long

To was 113 yes Levon BLESS HIS SOUL & RIP dis say Robert E. Lee referring to the comment above - a steam ship greatly honored by some southerners @ the time. Levon was wonderful as a singer, drummer & general musician as well as an actor. I believe his 1st shot @ acting was COAL MINERS DAUGHTER playing Sissy Spaces father.

Love Levon .
R.I.P. Levon Helm
Love you Levon, you left us way too soon.
Cuz the Canadian Robbie Robertson wrote MORONS
Joan Baez is SCUM!!!!
I guess every southern man has a little Dixie left in him. Some hide it better than others. There is right and wrong all over. Sad truths about our countries history.

Yes this song does mention Robert E. Lee. My guess is the reason is because it is part of the song
Damn the war of Northern Aggression!! ! !
Zac Brown did a good job!
Love it! Sorry Joan Baez has a much better version.
That last comment is sad. People don't give this justice. Pure perfection.

There was a steam ship that plied the waters of the Mississippi called the Robert E. Lee and some from the South would remove their hats when it sailed by.
Why did Levon say the Robert E. Lee? Or did I imagine it?
