Songfacts®:

  • It was Toby Keith's songwriting partner, Bobby Pinson, who had the original idea of 'You're gone but I bet I haven't seen the last of you,' for this song. Keith recalled regarding penning the heartbreaking narrative: "This was one of those where we got halfway through and weren't sure if we were going to be able to finish it. Then, all of a sudden, one of us opened a door and finished the song."
  • The song features harmonies sung by Mica Roberts who is an artist signed to Keith's label Show Dog Nashville. She accompanied Keith on the song "Let's Get Trashed" from the soundtrack to the 2008 film Beer for My Horses and has been a backing singer in his band for a number of years.
