Thread Name: Lyr Req: Darcy Farrell / Darcy Farrow
Subject: RE: LYR.REQ. Darcy Farrell
I. also, have heard Steve sing and comment about "Darcy Farrow" many times. The song was written in the early 60's by Steve and a buddy of his, Tom Campbell. It was based on a real incident that happened to Steve's sister, Darcy, whom Tom particularly adored. She was actually kicked by her horse when she was chasing him and needed some minor corrective surgery for a broken cheekbone. She recovered quickly but Tom never forgot it and the song rose out of the accident and what could have happened. Steve wrote the music and some of the lyrics, but Tom Campbell wrote most of the lyrics -- a sample of some of the beautiful things he put on paper. Check out "Springtime Meadows" and "2:10 Train.
