what a classic!

Other than George Jones, this is by far my favorite rendition! So many artists have totally changed the lyrics and screwed up this song! Wonderful!!!!

Now THATS a country song.

This absolutely defines country music in its purest form! Cowboy Jack has a golden voice! Great accompaniment and arrangement!!

How can 32 people dislike this? This is REAL country music!

wonderful honest country singing. Restrained and filled with soul. This is what country music is all about.

This is great. Thanks for this song and video.

Good Old Country..Singin’ about what’s if our heart.

Now that’s the way Country Music should sound…not like the garbage they try to pass off as Country in this day and age. Thanks for posting and God bless!

Is this the best video on youtube or what???

@brunester1 Yeah. Gold!

My God. So beautiful song!

If you look at the backing players you’ll recognise some of the ‘Old Crow Medicine Show’ band this video.

“I don’t tell her how lost I am without her. I say she’s just a girl I used to know.”
