  • Lyrics
  • Neil Diamond told Q magazine July 2008 how this song fulfilled an ambition for him, writing a song with just one chord. He said: "I used every trick in the book to keep it interesting melodically, going to all these crazy, nutty places. Within the restrictions of writing with one chord, I found a freedom that I'd never found before."
