  • G from Los Angeles, CaI had to add - the subject of this song is the assassination of Robert Kennedy, and the sunset of an era in American politics.
  • Alexander from London, EnglandYes he had, he first visited New York in the Spring of 1968; see my songfact for "In Brooklyn".
  • Bill from San Francisco, CaAl had not yet been to America when he wrote this song, it was about his perception of it. Ironically, he now lives in LA, and I don't believe he has written another song about the city.
