Album: The Phoenix & The Turtle (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Beverly told Uncut magazine that this song is about her late husband, the singer-songwriter John Martyn. She added: "There is a verse about our son, who is a bit wild. He didn't have a good father's hand, John didn't teach good things. Another line is about Davy Graham, John's hero, and Bobby (Dylan), who was mine."
