Ray Price - For The Good Times

 

Don't look so sad

I know it's over

But life goes on

And this old world 

Will keep on turning

Let's just be glad

We had some time to spend together

There's no need to watch the bridges

That were burning

Lay your head upon my pillow

Hold your warm and tender body

Close to mine

Hear the whisper of the rain drops

Blowing soft against the window

And make believe you love me

One more time

For the good times

I'll get along

You'll find another

And I'll be here

If you should find you ever need me

Don't say a word about tomorrow

Or forever

There'll be time enough for sadness

When you leave me

Lay your head upon my pillow

Hold your warm and tender body

Close to mine

Hear the whisper of the rain drops

Blowing soft against the window

And make believe you love me

One more time

For the good times
