Vintage Quote of the Day — Who is Paul Simon’s “Silver Girl”?

Written by , Posted in General

“The last verse, it was about Peggy [Simon’s girlfriend, later to become his wife], whom I was living with at the time: ‘Sail on, silver girl/Sail on by/Your time has come to shine’ was half a joke, because she was upset one day when she had found two or three gray hairs on her head.” Paul Simon, on the meaning behind his lyric to “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”
