Sissy's Song

Album: Good Time (2008)
Charted: 61


  • This was written for the funeral of the Jackson family's housekeeper, who tragically died in 2007 in a motorcycle accident. Alan Jackson explained on his website: "It was for a lady who worked here at our house; someone I saw everyday like family. She died suddenly of an accident this past spring and it was really hard on me and all of us. This is the same track that we played at the funeral. It's a real pretty song and a lot of people told me how much it made them feel better so I was very proud of it."
  • Leslie "Sissy" Fitzgerald was 40-something when she was killed in a motorcycle accident on May 20, 2007. Jackson recalled to The Boot: "She was just somebody who was in our house every day... then, all of a sudden, [she was] gone. When people get old, you expect them to die, but it's different when they are young and it's tragic like that."
  • Alan Jackson originally recorded "Sissy's Song" for Leslie's funeral, then producer Keith Stegall and him went into the studio one day and laid down the guitar and vocal. "It's just me and the guitar and the harmony parts," Jackson said. "After some people heard it at the label, everybody wanted to put it on the album."

  • Monica from West VirginiaI lost my grandma Peggy in 2008 to breast cancer we all thought she would be home for Christmas but she died on December 12 2008 I was extremely close to her they played this song at her funeral I made my mom buy the CD the next day because it hit so close to home with me and reminded me so much of her to this day I still can't be alone on 12/12 because I fall apart I can't put into words how much this song has meant to me and what all it's helped me get through. I was 13 when she died I'm 20 now and not a day goes by that I don't wish I could pick up the phone and talk to her I turn this song on instead since calling isn't possible.
  • Sharon from Westport, MaMy son played this song recently for me as my daughter age 45 was losing her 10 month battle with lung cancer. She lost her fight on Valentine's 2011. It made me cry. The words were so poignant and beautiful. We played the song at the close of her funeral service and had most everyone crying. She was such a good person who died way too young. I will never get over it but am trying to learn to live without her. I had never heard the song before but now I play it every day.
  • Karryn from Dover, PaJust heard this song for the first time. I lost my daughter of only 22 yrs old, in August of 2009. She was also my best friend. I home schooled my children and was very close to her. She was only married 10 1/2 months. I know she is in Heaven and this song just fits her. Thank you Alan Jackson for a job well done!

  • Amelia from Kansas City, MoThis song reminds me so much of a close friend that died of lung cancer on October 17 of 2010 at the age of 45. I'm so afraid now that my aunt will pass away soon. She has multiple myeloma or cancer of the bone marrow. She has been in and out of the hospital for about a year now. It is hard to think about her because she's so sick. She lives in NY and i live in KC,MO. I haven't seen her since 2007. I love this song and i cry when i hear it. Thank you, Alan for such a great song.

  • Dave from Alamogordo, NmWe lost our daughter on July 8, 2010. She was only 30 years old. Her brother made a video tribute in her memory. He used the Sissy song because it was a song that best described our family’s hurts and emotions. There are many days when all I can think of is my daughter Emily. She always use to tell use those exact words, ‘Don’t worry about me,I’ll be ok." This song has helped us in our grieving process. I want to thank Alan Jackson for writing such a beautiful song. A song that plays in my head every single day! I know she is watching over her family and is our Guardian Angel. We Love and miss our sweet Emily.
  • Tami from Wells, NvAbout seven years ago my older sister passed away from a stroke. She had Downs Syndrome but was very independent. Mostly I remember she was always so loving and so concerned for everyone else's happiness. Her name was DeAnn but she was known to everyone as "Sissy". This song kills me. Thank you Alan Jackson.

  • Samantha from Mount Pleasant , NcI lost my mom september 12, 2009. I had heard this song many times before but never really listen to it, i am only 16 and i listened to it while picking songs to play at the memorial service, this was the best one i played because she always told my sister and I never to worry about her, she would be okay. Now to this day i wonder why it happened to her, the best person i knew, it is an amazing song.

This song was played at her funeral and touched many hearts. Her daughter, age 3 and her nieces and nephews now call it Mimi's song. This song has been very healing to all of us.

  • Erica from St. Louis, MoI've cried almost every time I listen to this song, because in 2006 my uncle that I didn't see very much ever commited suisid, he heard things all the time. The day after that my aunt died in a car accident going to pick up my cousin. We were both in 2nd grade, she wrecked into a tree and my cousin has lived with us ever since.I only got to go to one funiral because my mom thought it would be too much.
  • Lisa from Heidrick, KyWhen I saw the title sissy's song I had to listen, my nick name is sissy. I dont listen to country music so I had never heard it before, so I looked it up on youtube and listened. As I write this tears are falling. My mom passed away suddenly on April 10, 2009, Its been one of the hardest thing I've ever had to go through, I miss her so much that sometimes I feel like I cant go on. She was my very best friend.I think about her every day. When I heard this, though it may sound crazy, it made me feel better and gave me small bit of releif. This song feels like it was written just for me.
  • Deborah from Port Charlotte, FlI found this song 1 week before my 49 yr old baby sister pssed away from a 8 month battle with lung cancer. I cried my eyes out the first time I heard it. Now that she is gone, I find so much comfort in the words. She use to tell me everynight not to worry about her. She was a beautiful young women, not a wife or mother, but a daughter, friend, and sister. I have this song on my phone and I listen to it everynight before I go to bed while I am hugging her Cancer Buddy Teddybear I gave her.
  • Steffine from Ypsilanti, MiMy Aunt (who was more like my 2nd mom), passed away on July 23rd, of this year of cancer. We had a memorial service and at the service we found someone to sing this song, and it was beautiful. This is a powerful song, and even though I still cry every once in a while, it's not because she died, but because I miss her. I will see her again, and I look foward to that everyday!
  • Julie from Mount Gilead, Nc6 years ago I lost my very best friend in a car accident 4 days before what would have been her 13 birthday. We stole her mothers car and was running away. We got maybe 2-3 miles away from her house and she hit a coulvert and we flipped 3 times end over end. I was thrown to the back seat and the car landed on its top. When I crawled out of the car I didnt hear her or see her. I instantly started running and screaming for help and then I looked down on the ground beside the car and thats where I saw her. I knew there was absolutely nothing I could do to save her. That hurt me more then anything! She was my best friend! we were so close, people who didnt know us thought we were sisters. They told me in the hispital that they couldnt fix her face so they couldnt have open casket. Her family chose not to see her because they wanted to remember her as the pretty girl she was. I am the only one out of family or friends that seen her face. I live with that image in my head every day of my life. June 5 of 2009 was the 6 year anniversary of her death and it was the first day I ever heard this song. Needless to say I bawled! I heard it right before I got to her gravesight. She would have been 19 this year. I miss her dearly and I will never forget her! To all who have lost someone they truly care about, Keep your head up and remember they are so much happier now! And to all you teens who think you dont like it at home anymore, just remember that "There is no place like home!"

  • Denis from Largo, FlI lost my wife in January of this year to Bipolar disorder, she committed suicide. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her.

  • Joe from Calhoun, GaI lost my granny in March 2008 and my brother July 2008. It has been so hard on me and my family. my granny was very religous and was not afraid to die.

This songs is perfect for them. I miss them with all my heart. May AGod be with us all!
  • Kathy B from Springfield, MoMy Big Sister Vicki passed away from MS after a long battle on May 1, 2009. As much as we thought we were prepared for this, We could not have been more wrong.

I will listen to it forever as it reminds me of my daughter and I know she is in heaven waiting for us.

  • L. Clampit from Deer Park, TxMy youngest daughter and I lost my husband/her daddy 9 years ago...This year we lost my oldest daughter/her sister (Christmas day) one day after her 30th birthday...It has been very hard on my daughter and I, since we had lost our loved ones...My daughter came home one day and said that she had heard this song and it makes her think of her sister...It is a beautiful song...We are believers in God and know that both of our loved ones are in the arms of Jesus at this time...As humans we are so selfish and want them here with us, but God has his reasons for taking loved ones home to be with him...My faith in the Lord is the only thing that has ever helped me get through the deaths of loved ones...If I thought that I would never see them again, I think I would feel worse than what I feel now...To go home with the angels when you leave this world: You have to except Jesus Christ as your personal savior...God Bless America...

I lost my oldest son, Billy, at 18 sevens years ago Brenda helped me through that awful time. I don't believe in God but this song should have written for Brenda maybe she's in heaven. Maybe she tried to get a message to me. Thank you Alan for writing this lovely song.

I didn't realize while I was listening that it would become an anthem, of sorts, to help me cope with my grief. Bless you, Mr. Jackson, for using your amazing gift for turning a few simple words into a song that is healing this broken heart, bit by bit, everytime I listen to it.

  • Steven from Austin, TaiwanMy mom first told me about this song and then her my grandmother and I were driving home from College Station Texas and the song came on and we all had tears in our eyes because we lost my Aunt on Feb. 24 2003. She fought skin cancer stage four for a very long time and she lost her life still fighting. She left behind a daughter and a very large loving family. I am 19 now and her daughter my cousin are very close and we really miss her but the fact that we know she is up there saying "don't worry bout me" really describes her! My cousin recently told us that if something were to happen to her to not be hurt because she would be with her mom! It is such the truth! We should not worry about losing our loved ones because they are up there with other loved ones who care about them too!!! This is such a good song for someone who just lost a loved one!

  • Ranae from Ottumwa, IaDecember 2008 my Niece died suddenly. She was my brothers only child and she was the world to her father and mother. Are family has always been extremely close and spend a lot of family time together. We was only 6 years apart in age and more like sisters. He is the one that told me about this song. He was on his way home from work and heard the song on the radio and had to pull over to listen and cry. Now it has become one of his favorite songs. It describes my niece perfectly. She was a daughter, wife and mother. She loved life with a passion and lived it to the fullest. Was a rock for all of us when we needed her. She will always be missed, but this song will help us remeber the great life she had while on earth and now she is with her family members up above in heaven. Thank you Alan Jackson for a unforgetable tribute song.

  • Mybuddie78 from Nahunta, GaMy 9 year old niece died in a car accident on November 15, 2008, only 10 weeks ago and it has been very hard on everyone, especially my sister, her mother. Her name was Briana but my mom and step-dad always called her sissy. About 2 weeks ago I was listening to the new CD and came across this song and looked up the name of the song and got chills up my spine. It is perfect. I am sorry for Alan's loss, but it is perfect in our case and it seems like everyone elses too. God Bless.

  • Teresa from Nashville, TnThis is a great song I had a friend that her 21 year old daughter died in a car crash and they played this song in her video and this song was her. Alan you could not have wrote a better song then this. I also listen to the song and remember my dad.
  • Carl from Reydon, OkWhen I first heard this song I got chills, because it was my late sister-in-law to a "T"; Every word, every line. I even wondered if my brother had written it and sent it to Alan. My sister-in-law's name was "Sissy".
  • Jean from Colfax, NcThis has got to be the Best Song ever recorded.My Dear Daughter, and only child passed away in Nov., This song was e-maied to me the other nite, and it just gave me cold chills, My Daughter's Girl's have played it over and over, they say it is the Perfect Description of their Mom. It is Truly an Amazing song, Thank-you so much Allen, it truly helps me get through the day. Nana
  • Rose from Louisville, KyI am going to play this song for the Mother (Deb)who lost her son in senseless murder if it can help my daughter cope it might help her cope and give her comfort to know that his is with God and Angels and all his loves that are already in heaven. She is having a real hard time dealing with her first born son death of which it would be hard on any parent losing a child. And again we thank you for writing songs that can help people cope with tragedy in their lifes.

She know it's about a woman but she puts him instead and she heard this just a few days after his funeral and she plays it all the time and she said she thinks about him and helps her cope with this awful tragedy.
