Songfacts®:

  • This bluesy, rock and roll number is a salute to "the little guy, the underdog." Vocalist Ronnie Winter said in promotional materials that this is how he characterizes his band. He explained: "It's been a wild ride. Everything really fell into place for us on that first album. We have a lot of incredible fans who bought our record. But we're just these kids from a small town who play together, and have done it on our own. But it's ultimately a lonely road that requires you to be away from your family, and that's time you don't get back."
