I Just Came Home To Count The Memories
recorded by Cal Smith
written by
Glenn Ray

C
I saw roses choking in the grass
F C
Flaking paint and a broken window pane
Am
A mailbox barely standing by the driveway
G7
I can almost see the name

F
A swing set and forgotten toys where
C
Little girls and boys played happy games
G7
Everything I ever cared about is gone now
C
But the memory still remains


The old man from the house across the street asked
F C
How's it going and I said fine
Am
The expression on his face would make me think
G7
He could almost read my mind

F
That Johnson boy from down the road was asking
C
If the kids could come and play
G7
Lord I wish I could have told him yes but I
C
Just said I guess son not today

C7 F
I just came home to count the memories
G7 C
That I've been counting in my mind
F
I just came home to count the memories
G7 C
From a better day and time


Birds that sang their pretty songs
F C
Aren't singing like they did when we were here
Am
Cause there's no happiness in music if somebody
G7
Isn't close enough to care

F
I picked a ragged daisy from it's home
C
Out in the corner of the yard
G7
She loves me she loves me not now I don't
C
Have to wonder anymore

Repeat # 5

G7 C
Tag: I guess it's time to say goodbye
