Kathy Mattea released this single back in 1987 and it became a #1 hit on the country charts in the US and a #3 in Canada. The song hails from her 4th studio album "Untasted Honey". This song was Mattea's first #1 song but it also produced another called Eighteen Wheels And A Dozen Roses. 

One of the three writers for the song, Pat Alger, recorded a version for one of his albums as did Nanci Griffith in 1985, two years earlier before Kathy Mattea had her #1 hit with the song.

Goin Gone Lyrics

There's a lighthouse in the harbor - Giving guidance with its light
But I had no one to return to - As I wandered through the night
From the first time that I saw you - Standing silent by the shore
I knew my search was over - And I would look for love no more

Deep in the waters of love I am falling
Sinking like a stone
Deep in my heart I can hear love callin'
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone - Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone

There's a ship on the horizon - Makin' its way against the wind
From the place where I stand watching - I swear my ship is coming in

Deep in the waters of love I am falling
Sinking like a stone
Deep in my heart I can hear love callin'
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone - Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone

Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone - Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone
