Sweet Memories

Song Author Mickey Newbury Performer: Hank Locklin Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]My world is like a river
[C]As dark as it is deep
[D7]Night after night the past slips in
And gathers all my [G]sleep


My days are just an endless stream
[C]Of emptiness to me
Filled only by the [G]fleeting
Moments [D7]of your mem[G]ory  
[D7]Sweet memo[G]ries  [B7]sweet memo[Em]ries   

[G]You slipped into the silence
[C]Of my dreams last night
[D7]Wandering from room to room
And turning on each [G]light


Your laughter spills like water
From the [C]river to the sea
And I'm swept away from [G]sadness
Clinging [D7]to your mem[G]ory  
[D7]Sweet memo[G]ries  [B7]sweet memo[Em]ries   

[G]Memories of the [D7]sweetest love I [G]know

My world is like a river
As dark as it is deep
Night after night the past slips in
And gathers all my sleep

My days are just an endless stream
Of emptiness to me
Filled only by the fleeting
Moments of your memory
Sweet memories  sweet memories

You slipped into the silence
Of my dreams last night
Wandering from room to room
And turning on each light

Your laughter spills like water
From the river to the sea
And I'm swept away from sadness
Clinging to your memory
Sweet memories  sweet memories

Memories of the sweetest love I know
