I Just Came Home to Count the Memories

Song Author Glenn Ray Performer: Cal Smith Submitted by: Anonymous

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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 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

Tag: I guess it's time to say goodbye
