There's a gorgeous version of this lesser-known Dylan gem floating around YouTube, and that's what I transcribed this from. Gillie and Dave apply their signature "ghostly-ness" to it, and really crank up the pathos of this classic cowboy ballad.

From a technical standpoint, Rawlings is doing some brilliant drone work, as well as clever chromaticism, and some nice minor to major crossover on the tonic. As with all things Rawlings, one bar of lead playing is worth a week of practice and philosophising!
