Memories Bygone

lyrics

I got bread and I got wine
I got a few things I call mine
I leave home every now and then
I got a coffee can I put a little money in

I save up and go to town
To see the storefronts with wedding gowns
I tip my hat and nod hello
Keep my hands in my pockets, my head hung low

I may pawn my watch and chain
For a ticket for the train
I won’t tell which route I’m on
If I go to Sugar Town
I’ll shake the sugar down
And raise a glass to memories bygone

I got flowers in a vase
I got bibles in a suitcase
I’ve held the rose stem with clenched jaw
I’ve drank muddy water and slept in a hollow log

I had a buddy, I had a pal
I had a home with my good ol’ gal
The closets empty, the sheets are bare
There’s one picture on the wall and one empty chair

I may pawn my watch and chain
For a ticket for the train
I won’t tell which route I’m on
If I got to Sugar Town
I’ll shake the sugar down
And raise a glass to memories bygone
