This particular song references the pain and suffering caused by the loss of loved ones, and how it is very difficult to move on.
In one of the lines of the chorus, Nelson sings that it is not something that you move on from, but something you have to get through.
The singer, who turned 85 weeks after the release of the album, released the video of the recording in black and white, with his entire crew including Mickey Raphael on the harmonica.
In recent years, the award-winning musician has lost quite a few of his near and dear ones to the grim reaper. Notable deaths in the industry included his old friends Waylon Jennings and Ray Price.
This song is definitely a reference to how each one of the deaths has deeply affected the musician and yet he has had to persevere.
Even at this age, Nelson has not slowed down in his musical career. He started touring in May, with his impressive Outlaw Music Festival Tour, which is a 17 date tour across the country.
As part of the tour, Nelson collaborated with other Country and Americana music legends like Neil Young, Van Morrison, and Sturgill Simpson.
