Enough. I love Isbell's writing... and this song... the first gazillion times I heard it. {#Cry}

Whatever..., I can't listen to this guy after his white guilt song, sorry.  Oops, no pun intended.  ;-)

An amazing song for those who are lucky and brave enough to think long and hard about such things. Like all stories, they all have to have an ending. After knowing the person I share lives with for 34 years, married for 27, in this world, I have no issue with being first moving on to the next world.
It only means, I'll have an empty beach chair next to me for a bit, watching a distant sea, feeling it wash upon my feet, until she catches up, sits next to me, again, like she has done so many times before. In this life and the last.   
  
 
Nice sentiments. I’ve been married for 37 years, together for 40 and feel the same way. Love the song. Bill could have followed it with “I will follow you into the dark” by Death Cab for Cutie.

Maybe too much of a good thing

Man, this guy can craft some poignant lyrics. And pleasant guitar work too.

amazing song. i don't think it's that sentimental. just matter of fact in the face of a crappy situation. jason is very underrated by some. the poetic lyrics fit the melody = great song.

This song is one for the longterm marriage people for sure. Clearly Mr. Bill loves it, as he always comments about it when he chooses it. I'm not all that crazy about it because it makes me think about giving marriage another try. And some people are meant to never be married. Better off just hooking up with some vampire dude when next in NOLA.

My experience with this song seems to be the consensus here. My wife cried when we saw Jason and Amanda perform it in concert a few weeks ago. She and I have 35 years together as of now, and 40 years is way too short.

Agreed.  I like the Iron & Wine song (Naked as we Came) with a similar theme better even if the title is a bit misleading at first.  This one, while touching, does seem a bit too (not sure of the best word) 'part-of-the-machine' - still have it at a 7 rating where it will stay.  LONG LIVE RP!!  PEACE

@GranBlanco - yeah....so....same thing here; my wife LOVES this song now that I shared with her.  So MY 7 +1 for my wife's enjoyment, dangnabbit I gotta up my rating.  {#Liar}

Watching Isbell and Shires do this live makes it even more heartbreaking.....husband and wife looking at each other harmonizing about one of them dying before the other.   "Hope it isn't me who's left behind...."

When his voice breaks a little on that line it crushes me like a bug underfoot.
