“When I’m gone don’t bring me pretty flowers
And don’t sit and cry for me at my tombstone
Come and visit me in the midnight hours
With your party on
Think of me and recall all the good times
Bring your memories and a bottle of ole’ Jim Beam
Take a swig as a hunted honky tonk moon shines
And remember me”
(Jami Grooms, Marty Brown)
The track’s Southern Rock feel is solidified by a hard-charging lead guitar, thundering drums and Bryant’s earthy, emotive voice.

It put me so back in to a place in my mind – and it was so real.” Bryant’s mother passed away unexpectedly in 2010, and he visits her grave several times a year, always with a few beers in hand. “This song makes me feel real close to her,” he adds.
