I just looked up the lyrics to this great song.

it listed the song as written by Gregg and Duane?

is that correct?

Gregg was the band's principal songwriter when the band started 40 years ago. Apparently "Dreams" was the first song he brought with him when he joined. Following this was an amazing creative period for him: "Not My Cross To Bear" "Whipping Post" "Every Hungry Woman" "Midnite Rider" "Please Call Home" "Leave My Blues At Home" and of course "Black Hearted Women"

thx Barry.

understand and have a grasp of the Gregg period of creativity in the early daze.

but what I was curious about was if Duane was part of this particular song or not?

Duane's lack of songwriting has always been a source of frustration for me and probably other fans of the era. Apparently he did write music, perhaps was bound to compose an album's worth of songs for an upcoming LP. But unfortunatley only "Little Martha" made its way onto an official ABB release.

Although Duane was obviously a superior guitarist, that doesn't mean he had the ability to write songs. Writing was not always an easy task. Even Eric Clapton had admitted that in his early days (like with Cream) he was a stumbling songwriter. "In those days, I was good for one song a year" he admitted in the liner notes to the 4-CD box Cream box set THOSE WERE THE DAYS. Eventually he started to compose great material but even he was off to a slow start. Probably Duane was like Eric.

thx again Barrry.

I guess Duane did not co-write the song then huh?

I'll bet duane had a lot if input musically... listen to a lot of gregg's songs from this era... 12 bar blues based... I'll bet duane put a lot of effort in to make them sounding different and unique. He probably just didn't care about song writing credits. The only ones he has credit on are: Happily Married Man, Mountain Jam, Hot Lanta, and Little Martha. I believe anyways.

Yes, the Rolling Thunder Revue Dylan had white face paint.

Agreed...Musically, but probably not lyrically.
