On and On and On

Album: Sky Blue Sky (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • Wilco lead singer Jeff Tweedy wrote this song for his father after his mother passed away. His mom was one of the most important people in his life, always coming to his shows, and helping him whenever he needed it. The song says "On and on and on, we'll be together yeah", and "don't deny even gentlest tide." This means that they will always be together and that its okay to cry. >>
