  • Lyrics
  • The song's lyric is sung from the perspective of a worker who is far away from his sweetheart. It was Hornsby's first single, released in May 1986 ahead of the album, which came out two months later. Hornsby was relatively unknown, and the song only charted at #72 in the US. The title track was released next, and went to #1, propelling sales of the album. "Mandolin Rain" was also a hit, and "Every Little Kiss" was then re-released, charting at #14.
  • Hornsby stated in a 2011 interview that he doesn't feel this song has aged very well, and doesn't play it often live.
