Which Rocky Top?

Can you help me figure out which version of 'Rocky Top' I'm thinking of?

Cannot stop listening to the Osbourne Brothers version of Rocky Top. There used to be a version floating around that was slowed down and mournful. I can't remember who recorded it, and it's driving me nuts. I think it was a female singer.

I can't help with the specific version of the song that you're looking for but I thought this Wikipedia article on the song was interesting and worth a read. It specifically mentions, "Despite its fast and upbeat tempo, the song's first verse is actually a lament over a lost love and lifestyle."

"Scrawl" has a version of Rocky Top that might be the one you're thinkin of. You can hear a clip of it at the iTunes store.

Diane Lane's character sings it a capella in the Kenny Rogers stock car racing classic Six Pack.

Have you checked out Allmusic.com? They've even got sound samples for a lot of the instances. If you've been burned by their suckage in the past, they've recently gotten a lot better.
