Peak Chart Position

  • from John Mellencamp's tenth studio album, Big Daddy (1989)
  • written by John Mellencamp
  • Mellencamp: I wrote "Jackie Brown" about myself in a different scenario: me disguised as a poor guy - not as a guy that had been successful and pretty much lost everything, which in my mind I had, because I'd lost my daughters. The song is about how you have to go outside to use the bathroom because you've sunk so low.
