Tom T. Hall – I Took A Memory To Lunch lyrics

Today the weather was so pretty
At noon I went out for a stroll
I walked and did some window shopping
And met someone I used to know

The years had been kind to her beauty
When I first saw her my heart jumped
Tonight if I seem disenchanted
I took a memory to lunch

We sat and talked about the old days
With misty teardrops in our eyes
And reconfirmed an old suspicion
The past grows old but never dies

The charm that draws two hearts together
By four o' clock was just too much
The days and years we had between us
Were down to just two coffee cups

You can't relive life in an hour
The afternoon kept wearing on
I'm sorry that I'm late for dinner
I took a memory to lunch
