What a Memory
On the day mama died,she called daddy to her side. And said,"I'll be goin soon ,I know its gonna hurt you both. But, promise me before I go, you'll do what I Ask of you In a big red Folgers can, Hid behind the pots and pans you'll find some money That I've saved And in the back of my dresser drawer I put away a little more for a rainy day Go to town and buy that new guitar cause he's been workin awful hard to get his Own To write his songs What a memory,oh what a memory even in her final moments mom thought of me What a memory She was only 35 I was 15 askin why? The lord took her away he must known we Needed her She was an angel here on earth I still miss her everyday. With all her friends And half the town And her family gathered round I bet she never felt so loved when everybodys Heads were bowed I did Best to make her proud as I stood up and I sang rock of ages cleft for me as I Played it on that new six string I couldn't help but cry as we said goodbye [Repeat chorus] Even in her final moments mama thought of me What a memory, What a memory
