Don't Forget to Remember Me
by Carrie Underwood



Eighteen years had come and gone
For mama they flew by
But for me they drug on and on
We were loading up that Chevy
Both tryin' not to cry
Mama kept on talking
Putting off goodbye
Then she took my hand and said
"Baby, don't forget

Before you hit the highway
You better stop for gas
There's a fifty in the ashtray
In case 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 telling me I'm on my own
And 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

To tell my baby sister
I'll see her in the fall
And tell Me-maw that I miss her
Yeah, I should give her a call
And make sure 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 kneeling by the bed to pray
I 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 ol' place
Yeah, I know there's more important things
But don't forget to remember me
Don't forget to remember me
