AOL asked Keith whether this song, about a guy who thinks he's basically misunderstood, was semi-autobiographical. He replied: "You ask any guy's wife or girlfriend, and she can find some things she don't like about him, but that don't make him a bad guy. When me and Bobby Pinson wrote the song together, we wanted to be as clever as we could in saying, 'Yeah, so what? I drink whiskey from a cheap paper cup.' And then, I'll drink a pot of joe after I sober up kind of stuff. So there's little things that you're probably not going to like about me, honey, but that don't make me a bad guy. We just wanted to be as clever as we could and really hook a great melody that sounds like me. My favorite line that seals it up is, 'I'm only good as I gotta be.'"
