Content

"Gone" is a moderate up-tempo featuring accompaniment from electric guitar and Hammond B-3 organ, with Troy Gentry on lead vocals. In it, the male narrator explains that his lover is gone, using a series of similes like "Gone like a freight train, gone like yesterday".

On Montgomery Gentry's website, Gentry explains that he and Eddie Montgomery (the other half of the duo) "knew it was a hit" because the first time they sang the song live, the audience began singing along.[4]

"Gone" debuted at number 45 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of November 27, 2004.
