MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: My dad took me to see Lynyrd Skynyrd when I was 13. We walked across the Ohio River bridge to Louisville to see them play at the waterfront. I saw a one armed man light a joint with his nub.
I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE… I wanted to write a song my niece and nephew could sing along too, but make something adults could relate to as well.
