Precious Memories

Recommended Posts

I remember sitting on my grand daddy's knee
There's no where else I wished I could be
Listening to stories of his younger days
Even though I was told to go out and play

 

I follow him out to his old wooden shed 
Helping him out with all the things that he did
He'd be rolling up his home made cigarettes 
Then he'd put them in the pocket of his vest

 

Course

 

I still think about him now and then
It's sad to think how it all turned out

 

Life is beautiful in every way
Our lives they ebb and flow each day
I think about you and it all becomes surreal 
When my blue skies turn to grey
And a darkness grows deep inside of me
I think about you and love is all I feel 
for these precious memories
That you gave to me I'm thanking you, yes I do

 

He take me for a ride in that old green truck
Before he start it up he would rub the dash for luck
Say old girl would you be good to me
He'd  give the gas a pump as he turned the key

 

Then he light up that homemade cigarette 
Put em back in the pocket of his vest
run his fingers trough that old grey hair
Cause he knew it was gonna be a bitch to find that gear

 

chorus

 

I still think about him now and then
It's sad to think how it all turned out

 

Life is beautiful in every way
Our lives they ebb and flow each day
I think about you and it all becomes surreal 
When my blue skies turn to grey
And a darkness grows deep inside of me
I think about you and love is all I feel 
for these precious memories
I'm taking them home with me 
These precious memories I'm thanking you
Yes I do these precious memories

 

Son he said you have to live a good life
find yourself a girl and make her your wife
Hug and love and care for your kids
Then he'd  gently put his hand on the top of my head

 

Tell them you love them each and everyday
Try to support the decision that they'll  make
Tell them to work hard guiding em on their way
You have to be a man I can still hear him say

 

Chorus

 

I still think about him now and then
It's sad to think how it all turned out

 

Life is beautiful in every way
Our lives they ebb and flow each day
I think about you and it all becomes surreal 
When my blue skies turn to grey
And a darkness grows deep inside of me
I think about you and love is all I feel 
for these precious memories

I'm taking them home with me 
these precious memories I'm thanking you

 

fade out


Trough the wind and the rain there's a stone that bares your name
In a tree by a field near a grove there's a songbird who sings
It brings me to my knees, keeps me beggin please
For these precious memories
