Comments :  

It can get very confusing when trying to identify actual takes of songs. This one is a typical example. Some sources list the Master as being Take 4, while other say Take 6. The "Boy From Tupelo" release has it as Take 9. The confusion comes when there are a number of false starts. These can sometimes be combined to give less take numbers or even ignored completely. The problem is when a release identifies the track as a certain Take, you don't know what method has been used. The "Boy From Tupelo" release has them all separated to end up with 9 Takes. You then need to listen to other versions and compare them with this release to actually identify a Take.

Take 1, 2 & 3   38 secs of three instrumental intros
Take 4 Complete
Take 5 Complete
Take 6 & 7    52 secs of two instrumental intros & false starts
Take 8 Complete
Take 9 Complete Master
