There Goes My Life

Living Life Comments Off on There Goes My Life

“There Goes My Life” is a song by Kenny Chesney. It’s the first single released from his 2004 album When the Sun Goes Down. The song spent seven consecutive weeks at number one in late December 2003 and January 2004.

The song debuted at #46 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart dated October 25, 2003. It then went on to spend twenty weeks on that chart, climbing to number one on December 20, 2003. It remained at the number one spot for seven straight weeks. It also peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This is another one of those country songs that can put a lump in your throat, particularly if you have been in this situation, as many people have. It is sung from the point of view of a high school football star who is devastated to find out that his girlfriend is pregnant. He tells us that his dreams of “hanging out on the coast” are long gone and that he is just a kid himself. “How am I going to raise one?” He quickly changes his perspective, however, and by the song’s end, when he is packing up his daughter to head off for the west coast, he is even more devastated than in the beginning.

I love this song! It is another example of a song that I probably wouldn’t have thought a whole lot about before I had my own daughters, but now that I do, I can completely relate.
