This resolutely uncompromising track tells its own story. Kristofferson told UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph: "The message in that song has been a real part of my life, because I've certainly gone my own way and spoken my own words. Looking back on my career now, I'm really kind of amazed by it all. Standing up on stage with Johnny Cash, Waylon [Jennings] and Willie [Nelson] as [1980s supergroup] The Highwaymen, all singing together and acting like equals, was pretty heady stuff. So it feels like I did something right. It's really been a fantastic journey."
