  • Lyrics
  • This song is about the sorry state of Contemporary Country music. The lyric, "They sound tired but they don't sound Haggard, they have money but they don't have Cash," is a reference to Country legends Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. The song implies that today's Country has no soul. >>

  • Camille from Toronto, OhI love the instrumentation of this song; the violin is fabulous, love the banjo. Natalie Maines' voice is one of the best treasures in country music. This is a great tune that sticks in your head once you hear it.
