Toby Keith

Big Blue Note

5 Sep, 2005

Keith releases his single, Big Blue Note, from his album, Honkytonk University.

I’ve never written anything quite like it. It’s just one of those things that happens to you as a songwriter. You’re going to write enough of them that one’s going to end up psychedelic or something. It went where it went. It’s a great “dear john” letter song. The title came out somewhere and it’s kind of a recitation. The last verse just ties it all together. He folds that note up into a paper airplane and says if it don’t come back he’ll accept the fact that she’s gone. I like to say on those that we happened to be the only writers up that night when that one floated by.
