  • Lyrics
  • This song is a true yarn about an encounter vocalist Caleb Followill had with a prostitute in the Arizona desert. He explained to Q magazine: "That's actually about a terrible story during our heyday. Me and Nathan decided to have some fun. There was talk of a brothel in the desert somewhere. It's not a lavish tale about being with a prostitute. It broke my heart when I walked in and saw this really pretty girl. She could've been doing anything with her life. Something must've happened to make her think all she could was sell herself. I ended up leaving without the sex."
