Hank Williams Jr. recorded this song for his 1974 MGM album Living Proof when he was still developing his own style and beginning to move out of his famous father's shadow. Released as a single, it peaked at #19 on the country chart. The track later featured on Williams' 1991 album Pure Hank and again it was dropped as a single, this time reaching #59 on Hot Country Songs.
The song is played on the 2013 movie Gravity, during an intense scene when the astronauts played by George Clooney and Sandra Bullock realize they are in grave danger as they observe the destruction of their space shuttle. "It just proves good songs resurface at the appropriate time," Williams commented. "I like both Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in their roles. Then hearing my song in the movie, for me, already made it a winner."
