Written by Gerry Beckley, ©1974
Found on Holiday.

(Great hits of the sixties)
Look the lady's got a photograph
Silver framed and velvet backed
Well, she took it quite a while ago
Funny that she never let me know

What does it matter to me
If it doesn't show
I just don't know
It's only just a memory
Just a little history
Oh, oh, oh

And now she's wearing satin shoes
Gilded hair to pay the dues
I guess that I should tip my hat
I wonder if she'd think of looking back

What does it matter to me
If it doesn't show
I just don't know
It's only just a memory
Just a little history
Oh, oh

In the parking lot late at night
Paper straws never worked out right
I knew I wanted to
But didn't know why
So I just said "Hi"
(Everybody sing along now)
