There has been a number of discussions on message boards concerning the melodic similarities between this song, and Bob Dylan's "Things Have Changed
," which was recorded shortly afterwards. Stuart told American Songwriter
magazine there is a reason for the resemblance, due to one night when he hung out with Dylan.
"I took him to my warehouse to see all the country music treasures I have," Stuart said. "Bob said, 'Hey, I like that 'Crow' song. I might borrow something out of that.' I said, 'Well, I probably borrowed it from you in the first place. Go ahead."
