I feel this song sounds much better when not done in 3/4 time. The version done by the Copper Family starts out in 6/4, moves through a couple of other time signatures and ends up in 6/4 again. When done in 3/4 time the song loses texture, in my opinion, and can end up sounding like a sugary County/Western number.
