Be a lamb. Help me identify this sad, sad song. UPDATED

UPDATED: In less than three hours, Smooth Harold reader Whit identified it! Thanks, Whit.

My memory and Google skills are failing me. After searching for an hour last night, I was unable to recall this really good sad song I heard last week. Some identifying attributes:

  1. Sung by a man.
  2. Not outright country, but I remember a little twang in it. Definitely a slow song.
  3. The man is singing to his wife, who has left him (again) at the worst of times, leaving him with the kids even.
  4. The song may or may not reference poverty, job, loss, etc, making the heartbreak all the more painful.
  5. A car or reference to “driving away’ may or may not be involved.
  6. I know the guy says something to the effect that he is truly heartbroken, especially by the timing of the women’s departure.

It’s one of the best sad songs I’ve ever heard. Any ideas, Internet?
