|The Wreckers singles chronology|
"My, Oh My" is a song written by Wayne Kirkpatrick, Josh Leo, and co-written and recorded by American country music duo The Wreckers. It was released in September 2006 as the second single from their debut album Stand Still, Look Pretty.
"My, Oh My" is a mid-tempo song with a traditional production featuring banjo, fiddle, and cowbell. The song speaks of a narrator who notices how everything changes so rapidly, and remembers when there was empty land where there are now parking lots and stores.
The song is performed completely in duet form by both members of The Wreckers (Branch and Harp), as oppose to other songs where they alternate between verses ("Leave the Pieces") or one member has lead vocals on a certain song (Harp on "Tennessee").
The music video, directed by Paul Boyd, features Jessica Harp and Michelle Branch riding in a horse-drawn carriage. They pick up a banker with a briefcase full of cash. Then they stage a robbery of the cash with their gang/band. When the police show up they pretend to be innocents and slowly slip away with the cash. The video is done old western style.
