Swig is a song about coming to terms with losing a loved one and Old Elvis Songs takes you back to a time in his life that was a happy one. In his youth his family would gather and listen to Elvis Presley records "Elvis was on in my house pretty much all the time. I'm not complaining I love his music to this day." There's even a song dedicated to the hard working farmer called The Farmer’s Way. John wrote it about his father- in- law, a potato and beef cattle farmer from Prince Edward Island.
