. "That was three different songs that I put together," he told Songfacts. "I had the basic melody for the big body of the song - I had that together, but I had to throw in a few surprises so there are some dropped bars. That is a very uneven-bar song. Two sections of it have uneven bars and the end of it is even crazier."
