“Chris Myers suggested that it might be a good song to record. I had never really heard it before, but I’m glad he suggested it to me, because I think it suits me well.
It’s a great story song, and fun to perform. Everybody who has heard it seems to be liking it so far.”
II cut it in Nashville with an all-star band including Seth Taylor on guitar, Ron Stewart on banjo, James Seliga on mandolin, Tim Crouch on fiddle, John Swift on reso-guitar, and Greg Martin on bass. Swift also handled the harmony vocals with Billy Droze producing.
They turned in a strong track on this John Dawson number from 1973.
