Reba McEntire finds this difficult to sing. "When I recorded it I had to really concentrate on the lyrics. It was a very emotional song," she confessed to Radio.com
. "It was for Mama and Daddy. It was for her letting Daddy go. He had been sick for three or four years and it was time."
"He was suffering and if he had known where he was and what was really going on, if he could have told us, he wouldn't have wanted that kind of a life," McEntire continued. "I think he pretty much decided when he wanted to go and God said, 'OK come on boy, let's go home.'"
