Running a tidy 2:34, this early hit for Vince Gill finds the singer at the end of a relationship. He makes just one request of the girl who is leaving him: that she take her memory with her when she goes so he doesn't have to think about what he's lost during those cold, lonely nights.
The song is a throwback to the classic Bakersfield Country sound that Gill loves (his 2013 album Bakersfield
is comprised of cover songs from this era). When we spoke with Vince in 2014
, he told us: "That was straight out of a Buck Owens shuffle song or Harlan Howard or Ray Price or any of those guys. I've recorded several others over the years and loved those."
