Thoughts on Songs with Jamey Johnson

I believe this song is about addiction. The merry go round is the constant cycle of addiction. The lyrics: "Free love isn't free" is referring to the love of your high but the price it will cost you later. Possibly referring to sex for drugs also. The Merry-Go-Round of addiction. (Ron)
