C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Joni Mitchell And Willie Nelson

Joni Mitchell did some incredible collaborations on her 2004 album The Beginning of Survival, including Wayne Shorter, Thomas Dolby and, on tonight's feature, the incomparable Willie Nelson. Joni first covered-- kind of; she rewrote some of the lyrics-- the song in 1988 on her album Chalk In A Rainstorm but this version with Willie is the new standard. "Cool Water" was written by Bob Nolan in 1941 and became a hit in 1948 by the Sons of the Pioneers (also released that year by Hank Williams).
