Walking Her Home

Album: Broken & Beautiful (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • Schultz told the story behind this song on the liner notes of Wow Hits 2008: "Henry and Liz were my neighbors when I first moved to Nashville. Henry told me that on their first date her father said, 'Son, take good care of my daughter. Walk her home from the movies and promise me you'll never leave her side.' A couple of years ago I visited them in a nursing home. After a hug and saying goodbye, I stood at the front door and watched them walk down the hall, arm in arm. Henry was walking her back to her room. I remembered the promise that he made to her father, to walk her home and never leave her side... He was still doing it."
