This song serves as a love letter to the small-town South. Paisley celebrates the simple yet wonderful things that come along with Southern life, such as "the mornings marked by "eggs on the griddle, coffee in my cup. Farmer on a tractor, kids on a bus," as well as "Old Glory wavin' atcha as you're drivin' by the courthouse."
West Virginia native Paisley wrote the song with his frequent collaborator Chris DuBois ("Then," "Remind Me.") and Brent Anderson who contributed to three other Love and War tracks, including the single "Last Time for Everything."
The track opens Brad Paisley's Love and War record. There is also a one minute reprise of the song at the end of the album.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
