The Red Headed Stranger wrote his signature song for a movie he also starred in. "I was on a plane with Sydney Pollack and Jerry Schatzberg and we were talking about doing the movie Honeysuckle Rose," Nelson recalled. "They said, 'Can you come up with a song for the movie?' and I said, 'Oh, you mean something about, you know, "On the road again, on the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again"?' And they said, 'Yes, but where's the melody?' I said, 'Well, I'll find one.'"
