When we spoke with Jayhawks guitarist and co-songwriter Gary Louris
in a 2012 interview, he said that he had "very little to do with that song, other than playing the riff." He added: "That's truly a Mark Olson song. If you're talking about Olson/Louris in a kind of Lennon/McCartney thing, then that's his 'Strawberry Fields
.' I had very little to do with that other than playing the guitar."
