Sweet Baby James

After a stint in a mental hospital and an ongoing battle with heroin addiction, James Taylor returned to his family's home on Martha's Vineyard, seeking their help. "It just may be possible that we can't find anything more comfortable than the time that we had as a family," he told Rolling Stone. Around that time his brother Alex–a former band mate who also taught Taylor how to sing–had a baby, who he named James. In return, Taylor wrote this "cowboy lullaby," as he's called it, for his new nephew.
