The album's name is derived from a friend of Rogers' who told of his experience with his love, a "truck stop queen". When the friend went off on business, his love would associate in a non-faithful manner with men traveling through her town. When the friend asked to his love, "How can you so profane our precious love?" she replied, "Aw, Honey, it ain't nothin.' I just do them old boys for good causes.

Archival Note

Charles Steadham, Rogers' manager and friend converted tapes where the original music resided into first-generation source material for this CD. Ray Valla, the album's recording engineer, applied a rescue technique that, through baking, temporarily re-laminates separated layers of aging audio tapes.
