GUEST,Phil d'Conch James Taylor's 'Copperline' - what's it about? (39) RE: James Taylor's 'Copperline' - what's it about? 02 Feb 21

Just to be clear, the place is real, the song is not. Based on a true story...

The Taylors didn't move to the Morgan Creek place until JT was around five years old. Really nice house. They were actually with the first wave of urban sprawl he complains about later in the song.

So he compressed his own early birthdays by 3-4 years and the Bottom's copper age by a couple of decades.

All's fair in love and pop music.
