Suite For 20G

by

James Taylor



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

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. (thanks, Steve - Hamilton, Other)

"Let me smell the moon in your perfume..." It took a rough mix and an extra verse, but Steve found his "calling card" song, which is always the encore.

"When seeds that you sow grow by the wicked moon/Be sure your sins will find you out/Your past will hunt you down and turn to tell on you."
