What A Memory (Album Version)

What A Memory (Album Version)

Tracy Lawrence

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
