I like how they are different enough versions. I think trying to studio the live version would have failed. The last sax of the big man.....incredible.  Ironically, that's how they got Clarence's sax solo. Clarence died right before he got the chance to record his solo for this track. They had someone take audio from a live performance and clean it up for the studio version.
For this part of the ride leave behind your sorrows, let this day be the last - tomorrow there’ll be sunshine and all this darkness past. Big wheels roll through fields where sunlight streams, oh meet me in a land of hope and dreams.
