Texas-born musician August "Augie" Meyers, who is best known as keyboard-player with the Sir Douglas Quintet and the Texas Tornados, played organ on this track. He recalled the recording of this song to Mojo Magazine July 2010: "Bob's a fantastic piano player, when he wants to play. On 'Make You Feel My Love' he asked, 'if you and Doug (Sahm, co-founding member of the Sir Douglas Quintet) were in the studio, how would you do it?' And I said, 'Well we wouldn't have two drummers, four guitar players, and stuff.' I said, 'Did you write this on piano or guitar?' And he said, 'I wrote it on the piano.' I told him, 'Play piano.' and I said, 'I'll play organ, let's just have one bass, one drum and one guitar.' so that's the way we did it."
