Sweet Baby James

“Now the first of December is covered in snow. So was the Turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston”
-James Taylor, from the song “Sweet Baby James”
This is one of my favorite James Taylor songs and I remember getting the LP for Christmas in 1970. We had just moved to the North Shore of Chicago the previous August and as a very un-settled 13 year old, I recall that this song gave me lots of comfort, just like the lullaby he describes in this video.
I still sing and play this songs, sometimes in performance but many times in song circles. Here’s a video of James Taylor singing “Sweet Baby James” and describing how he came to write the song in a live concert in 2007.
