Little Miss Tear Stain

Album: Drinks After Work (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Toby Keith penned this R&B-tinged cut with Scotty Emerick. Keith commented: "That's a tongue-in-cheek stab with a great line: 'Would you like to just go and talk, or is never still a good time to call?' I don't know, probably pushing it a little too far as usual. It's a little more kiss-off than it is goodbye, but it's comical. It's got a great groove. I really, really like that song."

    Nashville songwriter Scotty Emerick has collaborated with Toby Keith on many of his hits including "I'm Just Talkin' About Tonight" and "As Good As I Once Was."
