That was a good one. Billy J was having a bit of success and because he was out of the same stable as us, it made sense for us, if we weren’t having to write a lot of stuff for ourselves, to knock off a couple for friends. It was pretty much co-written: John and I sat down and purposely wrote it for Billy J in a couple of hours. This one is one I still like. I find myself whistling it in the garden.
