This profanity-laced Honky Tonk sendoff underlies the blue-collar struggles that so many have to deal with. Shelton described it to Roughstock
as a modern version of the Johnny Paycheck classic, "Take This Job and Shove It." He added that the song is about, "a guy that's working his butt off, doing everything he can and his boss just keeps asking for more and finally one day he's broke down, he's hurting but he still has a finger that works and I guess he flips off his boss and leaves, you know?"
"And he goes home," Blake continued "and his girlfriend is going out on the town and leaving him there and he's got a finger for her too. The song's just so much fun and there's something about pretending that you'd actually do those things because so many times in the real world, about least once a day, it's like, man I wish I could."
