The song tells the story of a man who has just sobered up, and his wife makes him do chores for her. He tells her that she "ain't much fun" since he quit drinkin.' Keith told AOL's The Boot how this tune came to be written: "He (Goff) came on the bus, and I was writing one night, and he was telling me some story about his wife. He said, "Me and my wife have been in a fight, and she said she was going to leave me if I didn't slow down, so I quit drinking. I'm not drinking right now. So now I've been having to mow and have been out working in the yard, and I've had to get that car running." He was telling me all his agony.She came home one night, and he had hit himself with a wrench or something and hurt his hand, and she said, 'What's the matter?' He told her, 'You ain't much fun since I quit drinkin'.' I was writing songs, and I said, 'Let's write this right now.' And we just sat down and wrote it."
