Album: Where Are You Now, My Son? (1973)

Songfacts®:

  • This Joan Baez composition appears on her 1973 album Where Are You Now, My Son? According to her biographer Charles J. Fuss, it is autobiographical; it would probably be presumptuous to say more than this bar to point out the obvious fact that it is intensely personal, and written by a woman who has seen - and felt - more than her fair share of human suffering, frailty and inadequacy. >>
