Cal Smith - I Just Came Home to Count the Memories lyrics


I saw roses choking in the grass

Flaking paint and a broken window pane

A mailbox barely standing by the driveway

I can almost see the name


A swing set and forgotten toys where

Little girls and boys played happy games

Everything I ever cared about is gone now

But the memory still remains


The old man from the house across the street asked

How's it going and I said fine

The expression on his face would make me think

He could almost read my mind


That Johnson boy from down the road was asking

If the kids could come and play

Lord I wish I could have told him yes but I

Just said I guess son not today


I just came home to count the memories

That I've been counting in my mind

I just came home to count the memories

From a better day and time


Birds that sang their pretty songs

Aren't singing like they did when we were here

Cause there's no happiness in music if somebody

Isn't close enough to care


I picked a ragged daisy from it's home

Out in the corner of the yard

She loves me she loves me not now I don't

Have to wonder anymore


I guess it's time to say goodbye
