Is this song supposed to be funny? Is it a parody of country music? Or does Jack and Beck have to step back every now and then and realize not every creation is worth a pressing. Yes, I understand this is a one-off recording and maybe the two were just having a little fun, but I still don’t get it.

The title Phoenix represents the band’s break with former manager, Terry Knight after a long year of litigation. It’s also the first LP that was self-produced. Although there is no mention of it on the cover or on the record, this is the last album where the band was known as Grand Funk Railroad. All future releases they would just be Grand Funk.
