Chris Stapleton: "I always thought it was one of the better songs I had been a part of so I decided to play it out. Over time it became a song that I was rarely allowed to leave the stage without singing. We went through several versions of recording this song until I finally decided it was best to present it in its original form: me, a guitar and one microphone."

Jake from VaThe song is about a man having a difficult time getting over the woman he lost. The cause is unknown other than he can"t buy her forgiveness for whatever it was but, he can hide the pain with alcohol. So, as he struggles to get over her he berries himself in booze. Bronson from VaIt about a man that has a bad problem with alcohol. His woman left him. And he still has a bad problem with alcohol. He drinks because he’s lonesome which he probably did even when he was with her and now that she left him it adds to that lonesomeness and because he can’t stop drinking he stays stuck and he becomes lonesome because he continues to drink... basically he can’t move on. The cycle of an alcoholic.Bw from Texasmeans i can get over the booze, but i cant get over youC.wyatt from TennseessWhat is the true meaning of this song?
