In this song, a guy is in hot pursuit of country singer Caroline Jones, and she welcomes the chase. She likes him, but he's going to have to catch her before he gets a shot.
"It's a song I wrote about the kind of love that I want and believe in, and the kind of man that I want," Jones said in a Songfacts interview
. "It speaks to a lot of the more traditional, old-fashioned, romantic values that aren't really that trendy or popular anymore, but that I still really believe in."
These values aren't common to Greenwich, Connecticut, where Jones grew up, but she was raised country by a dad who came from Memphis.
