1. Decidedly not autobiographical

for them. Maybe thatís why it lacks a certain conviction that their other songs have.

2. The song reminds me of my life and the town I grew up in.

Small town, about 5,000 people.

3. I'd always thought this was a Simon solo song. But was corrected recently.

4. Great Song

From the "Allentown" genre of dying factory towns that used to define the American Dream. Not autobiographical at all, but definitely they were good at these songs. The whole "Bookends" album is storytelling of Americana from two New York City boys.
