I have been searching the internet to see if I can find any background information about this song- thus far unsuccessfully. Can
anyone help? What inspired it? Many thanks for your help!

That was almost 60 years ago (when I wrote it), so it's kinda hard to remember any details. Always been one of my favs tho. If I recall I wrote it while I was living on the top floor of an old carriage house on 8th street in Greenwich Village.

OMG- I didn't expect to hear from ADG himself!

Your song is beautiful, it has an almost hymn-like quality. I have been singing it lately (at home), substituting 'lovely' for 'lonely' to mitigate the sadness of the latter word...

Thanks for your music, Arlo- I have enjoyed it for a great many years!
