"My, Oh My" is a mid-tempo song with a traditional production featuring banjo, fiddle, and cowbell. The song speaks of a narrator who notices how everything changes so rapidly, and remembers when there was empty land where there are now parking lots and stores.

Not no more
Not no more
My, oh my
Look how the time flies
Look how the world changes
In the blink of an eye
My, oh my
Look how the years have flown
Turning around before you know it
Up and gone
Oh my, oh my, oh my

The song is performed completely in duet form by both members of The Wreckers (Branch and Harp), as oppose to other songs where they alternate between verses ("Leave the Pieces") or one member has lead vocals on a certain song (Harp on "Tennessee").
