  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from New Jersey rock band The Gaslight Anthem's 2009 EP, Live at Park Ave., which was recorded live at the Think Indie store, Park Ave CDs, in Orlando, Florida.
  • Frontman Brian Fallon told Uncut magazine January 2010 regarding one of this track's lyrics: "After we wrote our first two records everyone said, 'Do you have to use the name Maria in every song?' So I wrote the line: 'Call every girl we ever met Maria/But I only love Virginia's heart."
