Songfacts®:

  • This track was written by Shelton about his girlfriend Miranda Lambert's pet dog and was inspired by the pooch's singular loyalty to its mistress. Shelton explained to Wendy Geller of Yahoo Music: "The idea came to me when I was on the bus with Miranda, and she had to go into town to do something. So I was watching her dog, Delilah, for her. Delilah watched Miranda walk away and drive off. Just kept watching. I said, 'Come over here Delilah, I'll pet you'... but she completely ignored me."
