What You Leave Behind is the third studio album by the American country music band Ricochet. It was released in 2000 on Columbia Records.

The album, originally titled What a Ride, was to have been released in 1998, and although three singles from the original album ("Honky Tonk Baby", "Can't Stop Thinkin' 'bout That" and a cover of Steve Young's "Seven Bridges Road") were all released from the original album, all three failed to make Top 40. "Honky Tonk Baby" and "Can't Stop Thinkin' 'Bout That" did not make the final cut, although "You Beat All I've Ever Seen", the final track on this album, is the B-side of "Can't Stop Thinkin' 'Bout That". "Do I Love You Enough" was released in 2000, peaking at #45 on the US country charts, followed by "She's Gone", the band's last chart single, at #48. In between "Seven Bridges Road" and "Do I Love You Enough", drummer Jeff Bryant and steel guitarist Teddy Carr both left the band as well. Also covered on the album is "Why You Been Gone So Long", previously a hit in 1969 for Johnny Darrell.
