Songfacts®:

  • Western metaphors proliferate on this Brett James and Bobby Pinson penned song amidst a high-noon arrangement. It finds Bryan looking back at his youth as he recalls how he and his "Blood Brothers" used to run their small town.

    "We were young as we were dumb
    When we piled in an old pile of junk
    It was all-for-one and all for one
    Bunch of outlaws without a gun."

    Bryan said this is "a song that reverts back to the past, those memories of the past and growing up like I did."
