[edit] Song descriptionEdit

Underwood tells a story of good-bye when she is ready to leave home after graduating high school.

Underwood has to accept the fact that now she is living all by herself as she relates in her lyrics.

In the music video, which was premiered on CMT on March 12, 2006 Underwood is shown walking off a bus and immediately signing autographs, as the song moves on Underwood, in her new house, has flashbacks of when she is loading up her Chevy with equipment and hugging her mother as she sings in the song "We were loading up that Chevy both tryin' not to cry."
