Thread Name: Lyr ADD: I Think of You (Utah Phillips)
Subject: RE: Origins: I Think of You...Utah Phillips
This is one of my all-time favorite songs. Great tune, lovely sentiment, beautifully constructed.

My son Dan tells me that it was one of two songs written by Utah when he received a "Dear John" letter many years ago, the other one being "Rock Salt and Nails." Hard to imagine two more different songs inspired by the same event! I'm sure Dan can supply more info.
