Fall From Grace

Album: Sequel To The Prequel (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Co-penned by Babyshambles frontman Peter Doherty a decade after he first admitted to problems with addiction, this Country-flavored song is a frank confrontation of the ugliness of his condition. Doherty commented to NME: "This was mostly written by (band associate) John Robinson from The Bandits who I wrote 'I Am the Rain' with. It's got a nice, friendly guitar lick, à la Bob Dylan."
