This song was an amalgamation of several bits of songs/melodies/lyrics/themes that Taylor had laying around as kernels for future songs that never quite made themselves known to him. He had a deadline to meet for completing Sweet Baby James, and stuck these loose themes together to make a single "Suite" and get the $20,000 (20G) advance for getting the album done on time.
