The Kenny Chesney There Goes My Life song was released in October 2003 as the first single from Chesney’s 2004 album “When the Sun Goes Down”. This song spent seven consecutive weeks at number one¬†starting December 20, 2003.

As October came to a close, country music star Kenny Chesney debuted his new live album, Live In No Shoes Nation. Among the songs chosen for the record was “There Goes My Life.” The cute song is about a teenage boy who learns his girlfriend is pregnant. Of course, the two teenagers freak out when they hear the life-changing news. In fact, several times they say, “There goes my life.” However, as the song progresses, the couple start to appreciate their decision to keep the child. The parents fall deeply in love as their kid grows up. Then, their child is old enough to move out west, and the parents start to breakdown from sadness singing, “There goes my life.”

The music video became the most popular of Kenny’s career with over 96 million views as of August of 2022.¬† Watch the official music video, see a live performance and check out the lyrics to “There Goes My Life” below.

Kenny Chesney There Goes My Life Lyrics

All he could think about was I’m too young for this
Got my whole life ahead
Hell I’m just a kid myself
How’m I gonna raise one

All he could see were his dreams goin’ up in smoke
So much for ditchin’ this town and hangin’ out on the coast
Oh well, those plans are long gone

And he said
There goes my life
There goes my future, my everything
Might as well kiss it all good-bye
There goes my life
Oh yeah…he loves that little girl

A couple years of up all night and a few thousand diapers later
That mistake he thought he made covers up the refrigerator
Oh yeah…he loves that little girl

Momma’s waiting to tuck her in
As she fumbles up those stairs
She smiles back at him dragging that teddy bear
Sleep tight, blue eyes and bouncin’ curls

He smiles…
There goes my life
There goes my future, my everything
I love you, daddy good-night
There goes my life

She had that Honda loaded down
With Abercrombie clothes and 15 pairs of shoes and his American Express
He check the oil and slammed the hood, said you’re good to go
She hugged them both and headed off to the West Coast

And he cried
There goes my life
There goes my future, my everything
I love you
Baby good-bye

There goes my life
There goes my life
Baby good-bye
