slightly OT but does anyone know how much of a collaboration this was? Which parts did Neil write and which parts DC? Did one do music and the other do lyrics?
Without knowing the truth, my guess is that Neil wrote the chorus at least. To me it is a Neil chorus not a Dixie's one. Hard to explain but the chorus has a great turn of phrase that Neil is more than capable of turning out.
Because the song is about one of the girl's father (or grandfather?) I would assume they wrote the verse.
All assumption of course but would be keen to know the exact breakdown myself.
hey thanks Stuart, I'd made some intelligent guesses about the subject matter but didn't realise it was *that* personal. Makes it even more haunting.
