Thread Name: Lyr ADD: I Think of You (Utah Phillips)
Subject: RE: Origins: I Think of You...Utah Phillips
That's pretty much what Bruce told me. He was in Korea when he received the letter. He sat down and wrote two songs - I forget whether in the same day or in two successive days. One was "Rock Salt and Nails" and the other was "I Think of You." I was surprised, because I had never thought of "I Think of You" in the context of a breakup, but that's how it came to be written.
