Kris will be the first to tell anyone that Janis owned his tune. And he'd be the first to trade tomorrow for a chance to play with Stephen Brutan again. RIP Stephen.

Great lyrics.
With respect to the undeniably talented Kris Kristofferso n , I would definitely not "trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday."
No way!

Janis sings it good, different but I think Jeery Jeff's is better.
