This country ballad is a tear-jerking friendship affirmation.
Goodbye (Kelly's Song) by Alabama
Sentimental slow country goodbye song.
My Wish by Rascall Flatts
You'll cry buckets, missing someone you've watched grow.
You're Gonna Miss This - Trace Adkins
Slow, uplifting and reflective, father's perspective.
Don't Forget to Remember Me by Carrie Underwood
Very touching country song about turning 18 and leaving home.
Take This Job and Shove It - David Allan Coe
Very funny 60's/70's goodbye song - very catchy and makes a good singalong!
This country ballad is about living your life and enjoying the simple
things around you, as life is too short, so make the most of now.
The song has lyrics reminiscent of the Irish farewell blessing:
"I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed".
Orchestral Country ballad, originally written for the singer's wife as they were separated by travel for a time.
The sound has a poignant and sad feel to it.
My Wish is a real tear-jerker. If you have watched someone grow up, or just grow, or if you know someone who is moving on with all their life lessons packed in their heart - grab two boxes of tissues if you click Play!
This country song is from parent to child about the various stages of life, and to make the most of now:
"You're gonna wish these days/Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times/So take a good look around
You may not know it now/But you're gonna miss this".
Upbeat sweet country song, about looking
forward to the future, but knowing that the people you're attached to
will miss you so much.
Very dry country song, the meaning of which is obvious from the title.
Only for those people with a sense of humour!! How bitter would you be
if you worked long and hard with no thanks??
