In Their Words: “‘Moonpies’ is a true story about the new girl in town who walks to the beat of her own drum. That being said, I wouldn’t let the truth get in the way of a good story. I planned to finish this song with Delbert McClinton, but he said, ‘You know, I think it’s done — I might change this one little line here.’ So when it came time to put the record out, I reached out to him about his publishing information and he said, ‘You’re out of your mind.’ So, according to Delbert, I wrote the song by myself. It’s a fun song — and pretty bizarre, musically. It’s kind of half Howlin’ Wolf, half Burt Bacharach.” — Seth James
