Welch joined Fleetwood Mac in 1971, and they recorded this song on their 1972 album Bare Trees. It became a hit when Welch recorded it on his first solo album in 1977. Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac sang backup on Welch’s solo version.

Welch wrote this at the Gorham Hotel on 55th Street in New York City. The hotel no longer exists.

Welch: “The lyric was probably referencing my first wife (at the time) Nancy. The original placeholder/dummy lyrics for the chorus (before I had ‘real’ lyrics) were, ‘my legs are sticks and my feet are stones.’ I have the old songwriting cassette I used, and that’s what I’m saying ;-).

The Fleetwood Mac version had 2 verses, the ‘hit’ solo album version (5 years later), had only 1 verse, in order to get it down to less than 3 minutes, for radio.”
