Ronnie Lane wrote this song with his wife, Kate Lambert and his mate Eric Clapton. They wrote it at Fishpool Farm near Bishop’s Castle in Shropshire, England near the Welsh border. Annie was the Lane’s babysitter and lived down the road in an old cottage. She’d come around every evening around 6 o’clock, whether they needed her or not, and would help Kate out with the kids. Jack was another neighbour who was always at the farm. Eric wasn’t a great friend of Ronnie until he left The Faces and moved to Shropshire. He liked to visit them there as he was overcoming his battles with addiction. Pete Townshend was another visitor.
