"That song is 100 percent what you think it's about," Blackstone Cherry lead singer Chris Robertson told us.
We think it's about marijuana:

"Mary Jane" is a popular nickname for marijuana. Other artists who have written odes to the herb with that name in the title include Rick James and Lady Gaga.
The song started with a guitar riff and came together when they decided to have the vocal follow the guitar. One of the band members started singing, "Me and Mary Jane, da da da da da da," which gave them the title and lyrical direction.
Yeah we're wilder than some mustangs Got the top down and Skynyrd up
Like many southern rock bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd was a huge influence on Black Stone Cherry.
