Story behind the song
this is quite a fun song...i wrote the lyrics and all in about 1hr as i was warming up to go in the studio to record travelers song...i don't know where it came from (it think i had heard "i'm the one" by mr. big the day before), just popped up as songs sometimes do...me, my martin d-35 and my engineer lonnie griffis on bass...real simple, real easy, recorded through a beautiful sennheiser mic, you can tell...just listen to that martin sound...yeehaw credits: shaun hull: martin d-35, 1967 (white) fender strat, vocals lonnie griffis: bass
