 “All That We’ve Got Left” talks about how a man feels about a breakup. It is about the feelings holding on, doubt, pain, and an all else that come with a heartache.

When we are ending our relationship with the one we thought we would share an entire life with, our visions for the future can certainly get quite foggy.

We feel as if nothing better will ever come along, and that is a truly scary thought.the

Following any terrible breakup, dealing with your emotions head-on is imperative to get yourself back on the right track. Overcoming heartbreak will be nearly impossible if you hide your feelings and pretend you do not care. It will not get you anywhere. The sooner you put a name on your feelings and express them. The sooner you can work through them and stop letting them make you feel so horrible.

A great way to express your feelings is to put them down in writing. For this song, the writers are Buddy Cannon, Russell Smith, and fellow country singer Vern Gosdin.

The Background of the Song

Jones’s last proper studio album had been 1990’s You Oughta Be Here With Me although Friends In High Places would be his last actual release on Epic after 19 years. They got the inspiration for the title through the hit single by Garth Brooks, “Friends In Low Places”. The album contains duets mostly taken from the vaults (for example, the duet with Emmylou Harris, “All Fall Down”, recorded in 1984). The most significant track in the collection is “A Few Ole Country Boys”, a duet single with Randy Travis that made it to number 8. This was largely because Travis was one of the biggest-selling artists at the time and it made Jones the only country artist in history to have a Top Ten song in each of the previous five decades. The album also includes a duet with fellow country icon Buck Owens on the Owens classic “Love’s Gonna Live Here”. After the release of the album with no promotion, the track peaked at number 72.
