Decoration Day was started after the American Civil War to remember all the soliders on both sides who lost their lives. Now known as Memorial Day, its a day to remember those who were lost.

She does not look unlike Shonna Tucker.

Won't lie, I did not know who Shonna Tucker was, but after a  google search, you are crazy right.

Had you heard of the Drive-By Truckers before, or was this a straight-up reference to Decoration Day as holiday?

I'm a huge DBT fan and this is just one of those phrases that's impossible for me to hear without thinking of the title song and DBT album it belongs to (not unlike "Ooops, I did it again).

When I lived in the Deep, Deep South I knew a number of people who still referred to Memorial Day as Decoration Day. It was a little bit weird.

That's what made me think of the title. I also live in the South and knew a lot of older people who called it that when I was growing up.
