The song was written by Odie Blackmon. "I wrote that one by myself," he told Roughstock
. "That was a true story. It was something I was going through at the time. I was actually living in a house that was a duplex next door to the girl I wrote the song about."
"It has become a sticky situation," Blackmon added. "That song poured out in 30 minutes. One morning, I was just down about the whole deal, and I didn't have a co-write, but I had a guitar. It just kind of poured out. I sat there looking at it on the page while playing my cassette back, going man ... I think this is really, really good."
