Don’t Forget to Remember Me

Don’t Forget to Remember Me
(Morgan Hayes, Kelley Lovelace, Ashley Gorley)

Eighteen years had come and gone
For Momma they flew by
But for me they drug on and on
We were loadin’ up that Chevy
Both tryin’ not to cry
Momma kept on talkin’ puttin’ off goodbye
Then she took my hand and said
Baby don’t forget

1st Chorus:
Before you hit the highway you better stop for gas
And there’s a fifty in the ashtray if you run short on cash
Here’s a map and here’s a Bible if you ever lose your way
Just one more thing before you leave
Don’t forget to remember me

This downtown apartment sure makes me miss home
And those bills there on the counter
Keep tellin’ me I’m on my own
Just like every Sunday I called Mama up last night
And even when it’s not I tell her everything’s all right
Before we hung up I said
Hey Mama don’t forget

2nd Chorus:
To tell my baby sister I’ll see her in the fall
Tell Mama that I miss her yeah I should giver her a call
And make sure that you tell daddy that I’m still his little girl
Yeah I still feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be
But don’t forget to remember me

Tonight I find myself kneelin’ by the bed to pray
Haven’t done this in a while so i don’t know what to say
But Lord I feel so small sometimes in this big old place
Yeah I know there’s more important things
But don’t forget to remember me



(Troy Verges/Marv Green/Hillary Lindsey)

Standing at the back door she tried to make it fast
One tear hit the hardwood, it fell like broken glass
She said sometimes love slips away
And you just can’t get it back lets face it
For one split second she almost turned around
But that would be like pouring raindrops back into a cloud
So she took another step and said
I see the way out and i’m gonna take it

I don’t wanna spend my life jaded, waiting
To wake up one day and find
That i let all of these years go by wasted

Another glass of whiskey, but it still don’t kill the pain
He stumbles to the sink and pours it down the drain
He said it’s time to be a man and stop living for yesterday
Gotta face it

i don’t wanna spend my life jaded, waiting
To wake up one day and find
That i let all of these years go by wasted
I don’t wanna keep on wishing, missing
The still of the morning, the color of the night
I ain’t spending no more time wasted

She kept driving along ‘til the moon and the sun
Were floating side by side
He looked in the mirror and his eyes were clear
For the first time in a while

(Repeat chorus)
