"You Can't Keep a Good Memory Down" as written by and Burch/murrah/murrah....
I sold the house we lived in
And moved a thousand miles to get away
But the feeling that I'm running from
Was waiting here when I unpacked today

She's on my mind and in my heart
I hear her voice, what a haunting sound
You can leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down

I wandered through these city streets
Oh, I feel so out of place
And in this crowd of strangers
Everywhere I turn I see her face

Oh, it's hard to know just what to do
Or where to go, where hurt don't hang around
You can leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down

You can start your life all over
Go somewhere where everything is new
But if there's a memory strong enough
It won't let go of you

Oh, she's on my mind and in my heart
I hear her voice, what a haunting sound
You can leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down
Oh, you may leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down
