Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Jeff Tweedy addressing the passing of his father in 2017. He told Q magazine: "I was going through a pretty intense period in my life. In the years leading up to my dad dying, there was a complete reassessment of his impact on my life and a reassessment of him as a person. We had a pretty complex relationship but our communication got a lot deeper, and I'm really grateful of that opportunity to paint a more accurate picture of him."
