Sweet Memories
recorded by Hank Locklin
written by Mickey Newbury
 

G
My world is like a river
C
As dark as it is deep
D7
Night after night the past slips in
                   G
And gathers all my sleep
 
                             
My days are just an endless stream
C
Of emptiness to me
                   G
Filled only by the fleeting
        D7         G
Moments of your memory
D7        G     B7        Em
Sweet memories  sweet memories
 
G
You slipped into the silence 
C
Of my dreams last night
D7
Wandering from room to room
                    G
And turning on each light
 
 
Your laughter spills like water
         C
From the river to the sea
                        G
And I'm swept away from sadness
         D7         G
Clinging to your memory
D7        G     B7        Em
Sweet memories  sweet memories

G               D7              G

Memories of the sweetest love I know

I'm guessing that Ricky Van Shelton and Brenda Lee had the biggest hit with this beautiful song. Hank and his backup singers do a great job with it, the chords require a bit of practice for most of us. Copy Sweet Memories lyrics and chords to help you learn to play and sing this wonderful classic.
