According to Songs in the Key of Z: The Curious Universe of Outsider Music, B.J. Snowden wrote "Ode To Lesley" about a close cousin who was killed driving home in a head-on collision with a drunken motorist". She said: "We were good friends... I'd just seen her at a wedding, and we were going to get together. But she got killed. She left two children."
