A Way To Survive  
Recorded by Gene Watson
Written by Hank Cochran and Moneen Carpenter

C D7
I look at your picture too often
G7 C G7
It helps keep your memory alive
C D7
It's not healthy they say to relive yesterday
G7 C
But for me it's a way to survive

F G7 C F
I must cling to what's gone if I'm to go on
C G7 C G7
I can't face the future I've tried
C D7
Perhaps for the rest looking back isn't best
G7 C
But for me it's a way to survive

When my heart aches I read all your letters
G7 C G7
And the words make our love seem alive
C D7
They say I can't last if I live in the past
G7 C
But for me it's a way to survive

Repeat #2

G7 C
But for me it's a way to survive
