Ferlin Husky

About Gone

"Gone" is a 1957 single by Ferlin Husky written by Smokey Rogers. The song was Ferlin Husky's second No. 1 on the country chart, where it stayed at the top for ten weeks with a total of 27 weeks on the charts. The vocal backing on the song was provided by the Jordanaires with soprano Millie Kirkham. "Gone" also crossed over to the Hot 100 peaking at No. 4. Selling over one million copies, 'Gone" was awarded a gold disc. Recorded in Nashville at Bradley's Quonset Hut Studio, the recording is widely regarded as the first example of the Nashville Sound production approach. The use of echo and sparse instrumental support combined with the talented background singers heightened the drama of Husky's distinctive vocal. Prior to recording this hit, Husky appeared regularly at the Grand Ole Opry. "Gone" propelled him to network television appearances first on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts then a spot as guest host on the Kraft Television Theater, The Ed Sullivan Show, and eventually talk shows hosted by Steve Allen, Johnny Carson, and Merv Griffin. Husky had to give up his Opry slot, but TV exposure introduced him to millions of viewers.

Since you've gone
The moon, the sun, the stars in the sky
Know the reason why I cry
Love divine once was mine; 
Now you've gone.

Since you've gone
My heart, my lips, my tear-dimmed eyes,
A lonely soul within me cries.
I acted smart, broke your heart;
Now you've gone.

Oh,  what I'd give for the lifetime I've wasted.
The love that I've tasted.
I was wrong; now you've gone

Oh,  what I'd give for the lifetime I've wasted.
The love that I've tasted.
I was wrong; now you've gone
