Thread Name: Loop and Lil (Van Zandt's 'If I Needed You')
Subject: RE: Loop and Lil
Nope - he said in no uncertain terms within my presence and has said on live albums, "Loop and Lil are parakeets."

Emmylou Harris changed it to "Who would ill agree" when she recorded the song with Don Williams. I guess you can't have a number one hit with unidentified parakeets in the chorus.

I have to admit it threw me for a Loop the first time I heard it - or was it a Lil?
