Where Did Our Love Go, by various artists. Iíve liked every version of this song, but my fave is by the J. Gelid Band:

Yes, I know that, but I was referring to his having lost the love for his wife and giving up his daughter. Sorry didn't make that clear.

The love between the two of us was dying
And it got so bad I knew I had to leave
But halfway down that highway when I turned around I saw
My little daughter running after me

If only for the sake of my sweet daughter
I just had to turn back home right there and then
And try to start a new life with the mother of my child
I couldn't bear to hear those words again
She cried and said

And yes, he was walking down a highway. Don't know why I keep thinking he was leaving on a plane.

That reminds me of Memphis, Tennessee, recorded by many artists. The narrator's marriage has broken up. His daughter is the only one that would call him, his wife presumably won't talk to him.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer's magnificent song, Trilogy.
Go wherever you can be
And live for the day
It's only wear and tear

Just about everything Patsy Cline ever sang. How was she not on the first page?
