Loved By a Workin' Man

Songfacts®:

  • This song was penned by Angaleena Presley many years before The Pistol Annies were formed. She told Billboard magazine: "When I first moved here, I dated this boy who worked on the railroad, he drove a big Chevy truck with a lift kit on it, and we'd go up in the hills and go muddin'. One night he got his truck stuck and literally it sank down, and we had to get a backhoe to come up there and get it out. That guy, he's my dad, he's their dad, he's our uncles."
