Emmylou Harris, c'est la vie.

The Hot Band: Albert Lee, Emory Gordy, John Ware, Glen D Hardin, Rodney Crowell, Hank Devito.

From 1977 Old Grey Whistle Test.

"You Never Can Tell", also known as "C'est La Vie" or "Teenage Wedding", is a rockabilly song written by Chuck Berry. It was composed in the early 1960s while Berry was in federal prison for allegedly violating the Mann Act.[1] Released in 1964 on the album St. Louis to Liverpool and the followup single to Berry's final Top Ten hit of the 1960s: "No Particular Place to Go", "You Never Can Tell" reached #14 becoming Berry's final Top 40 hit until "My Ding-a-Ling" in 1971.  

Emmylou Harris' remake of "You Never Can Tell" - entitled "(You Never Can Tell) C'est La Vie" - served as the lead single from the January 1977 album release Luxury Liner, Harris' Warner Bros label debut.

Early in her career Harris had sung Chuck Berry songs as a member of a DC-based folk oriented trio: her decision to record "...C'est La Vie" was the result of her listening extensively to rock-&-roll oldies while on the road. The track, which features a prominent Cajun fiddle contribution by Ricky Scaggs, was recorded in an August 10 1976 session in Beverly Hills, being recorded in the Enactron Truck, the mobile studio owned and operated by Harris' producer Brian Ahern: the same session yielded the track "Hello Stranger" which would serve as the B-side for "...C'est La Vie" in its single release.

Released February 2 1977, "...C'est La Vie" rose as high as #6 on C&W chart in Billboard that April. The track also became Top Ten hit in the Netherlands and also the Flemish Region of Belgium, with respective peaks of #4 and #5, also charting in Germany at #41.
