This song finds Kid Rock paying tribute to his home city. It is a cover of a 1965 soul B-side by Ronnie Love, with some lyrics revamped by the Detroit singer. "I've been writing songs about Detroit since the beginning of my career," Rock told Detroit Free Press. "This finally hits the nail on the head."
Co-Engineer Al Sutton told Detroit Free Press the track is typical of the "classic Kid Rock style" of song production with live drums set atop a programmed beat. "That's the way he writes," he said. "He'll put a beat together on his MPC (drum machine), lay down his idea for a guitar or another part, and make a rough arrangement of the song, usually with a vocal idea. So he'll have this rough skeleton, and then we record to that."
The song is punctuated by saxophone from Detroit based jazz musician Dave McMurray. McMurray was regarded as one of the finest avant expressionists in his 1980's heyday with Griot Galaxy and has since been a member of Was, Not Was.
