Over You

Album: Hubcap Music (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This track, written by Steve about his ex-wife, captures the veteran bluesman and former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones casually playing guitar and mandolin together on a couch. Jones also plays lap ukulele and fretless gourd banjo. "It's real primitive," Steve told Mojo. "John plays that thing right down in the Mississippi mud. I sat there with my mouth open."
