18 years have come and gone
For momma they flew by
But for me they drug on and on
We were loading up that Chevy
Both tryin' not to cry
Momma kept on talking
Putting off good-bye
Then she took my hand and said
Baby don't forget

Before you hit the highway
You better stop for gas
There's a 50 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 tellin' me I'm on my own
And just like every Sunday I called momma up last night
And even when it's not, I tell her everything's alright
Before we hung up I said
Hey momma, don't forget to tell my baby sister I'll see her in the fall
And tell mee-ma 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
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
I know there are more important things, but
Don't forget to remember me
Don't forget to remember me

    i love this song,because it tells a tale of a young woman on her way into the world. It soo funny because that's how it beginns for everyone who is just beginning their life. And how no matter what, your parents will always be there for you.

    Hmm, curious why my previous post, didn't post the way i wrote it. I capitalized god and him but it's lower case in the post. I'm kind of offended that it was changed. Let's see if god and him are capitalized in this one.

    Ultimately i believe it's the desire of every human being to know someone is thinking about them with love! To anyone reading this who doesn't feel like they have that in their lives remember that god is always thinking about you with the greatest love there is, his! Don't forget to remember him too! :)
