  • Lyrics
  • This is a cover of a song which was penned by American Country music singer Keith Whitley, whose brief career in mainstream Country music lasted from 1984 until his death in 1989.
  • Johnson told Billboard magazine: "I had never heard that song before, and it turns out I don't think Keith has ever put it out. The only version I've ever heard is a work tape that he did back when he wrote it. It's a great song."
