Upon the release of the song, “Between an Old Memory and Me” entered into the country charts. Since it became popular, Travis Tritt, a popular country artist, made his own version of the song. Travis’ rendition was released in November 1994 as a single from his album Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof.

With this song, Travis reminds us that,

“As long as people drink, there will be drinking songs.”

Lyrics Breakdown

And I don’t want to talk about it
So why can’t they just let me be?
‘Cause this is just between
An old memory and me

In times of life’s downfall, all we want to be with is someone who we can share our stories with and one who wouldn’t judge us. Don’t you agree?  In line with this is the song, “Between an Old Memory and Me” which talks about the narrator’s story of encountering a stranger in a little club. When the stranger saw him problematic, she walks towards him to talk about the things he is thinking about. At first the narrator might seem hesitant to talk but afterward, he realized that no one wants to hear his problems aside from the stranger.
