Weight of the world/Leave me Praying

It just popped up in my playlist and I was just thinking how much this would kick ass in Dave's acoustic set this tour. I know it's basically Don't drink the water now but that 1997 version from Denver has my mind blown. The "this land is your land" outro is fantastic. I cant find a "Don't drink the water" version that I would prefer over the early arrangements of 96/97 Weight of the World/Leave me Praying. Thoughts?

    While I would prefer Don't Drink the Water, Leave Me Praying is pretty old school and I agree that it should be played acoustic. I'll just add that to the list of things that probably won't happen this tour though

    Listening to a few versions now (DMB LT17, D&T LT 23)...the bit different chords on LT17 are nice. I like both versions, interesting to see how the song progressed into DDTW, the lyrics developed, etc. Listening through a lot of older stuff, it's crazy how good this band was back then. Still great, but the music they were making then is all-time great stuff.
