The song was released in November as the second single from Rogers' multi-platinum album Kenny. It became a major crossover hit , topping the Billboard Country chart and reaching 3 on the Hot chart; it also topped the Cash Box singles chart and was a Top 10 hit in numerous other countries worldwide topping the chart in Canada, the UK, and also in Ireland where it stayed at 1 for six consecutive weeks. Rogers sings in narration about his ward and nephew Tommy, a young man with a prominent reputation for never standing up for himself; his pacifism earned him the derisive nickname "Yellow" from others throughout the county, but Rogers hinted that he always felt there was something about Tommy that the rest of the county did not see. Tommy's nonviolent attitude was greatly influenced by his father who had died in prison when Tommy was ten years old; during his final visit with him, Tommy's father pleads with him to not make the same mistakes he made, telling him that " turning the other cheek " is not a sign of weakness, and advising him, "Son, you don't have to fight to be a man". Years later, Tommy is in a relationship with a woman named Becky who loves and accepts him as he is without his having to prove he is a man. One day while Tommy was at work, three Gatlin brothers assault Becky and gang rape her.
