(Hank Williams - Hank Williams Jr.)
« © '69 Fred Rose Music »
Today you tell me you are leaving that you are going far away
Darling I've got no way of holding you so this is all that I can say
You can't take my mem'ries of you you can go and leave me oh so blue
Break my heart and you can make me cry but you can't take my mem'ries of you
I tried every way to make you happy but I guess it was never meant to be
So today you say you are going far away across the deep blue sea
Now after you are gone my darling each night I go down to the sea
And gaze at the stars as I wonder where you are
And pray some day that you'll come back to me
But you can't take my mem'ries...
