That's as may be. I was simply correcting the statement that was made about the origin of the song.
(And FWIW, I don't know that I've ever heard the Ronstadt version, although I have heard her versions of "You're No Good" and "When Will I Be Loved" on the radio many times.)

recorded the song first, the best-known version was sung by Linda Ronstadt, who got lots of radio airplay with it. The song is on Ronstadt's multi-platinum album "Heart Like a Wheel" (1974).

Cause thinkin' and drinkin' are all I have today."
