Ricky Van Shelton - I'll Leave This World Loving You Lyrics

Walk away, leave with my blessing
Once in a while, let me hear from you
If we never meet again before my life is over
I'll leave this world loving you

You can take everything but my memories
For they're good ones and they'll see me through
If we never meet again, I'll love you forever
I'll leave this world loving you

You were mine for a time and I'm thankful
Oh, but life will be so lonesome without you
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I'll leave this world loving you

If we never meet again this side of heaven
I'll leave this world loving you

  54. Shannon Burns

    Written by Wayne Kemp and Mack Vickery. Recorded by Wayne Kemp in 1974. This song was recorded on January 1988, released in August 1988. It would become Van Shelton's 4th number one hit in a row. My Little Bear Shannon Marie Burns left this world and me loving her for eternity. She fell into a coma and I never got to say goodbye to my wife of 25 years. It drives me crazy. I love you Shannon, for eternity. Your Denny. On the big Franklin pedal steel was Paul Franklin.

    When I listen to country music I always go back to this 90's era. In my opinion this decade was one of the golden ages of country music. Too many great country songs and too many great country artists.
