Oh, John COUGAR Mellencamp, so as I was reading some of the annotations to this one, it says you grew up in a town of 13,000. 13,000? John COUGAR Mellencamp, please. I don’t think there was 13,000 in my whole county growing up. Here I was thinking you were the expert on small-town America, but it was me all along! Guess you better stick to making awesome songs like this one.
