I sometimes imagine that if there were ever a fictional movie based on my life (not that I expect there ever will be!), this would be the opening track.
Where I grew up wasn't where I was born, but the two places aren't very different, and this song seems to roll them all into one.
A couple of things I would point out, though, I do not loath where I grew up, and my mother didn't die. As for my father getting drunk, well, that's another song, literally!
