"Memories Fade" as written by and Michael D/morgan Morehead....
Sitting on the front porch
Watching the children play
Old man rocking
Waiting for judgement (day)
A fresh chew of tobacco, and a glass of lemonade
The sun beats down, but he's safe in the shade

Oh... Just a memory
As a memory fades

Mama's in the kitchen
Been working there all day
The old man comes home
As the children come into play
He works all day
At the corner lumberyard
Just to bring home a dollar
He works real hard all day

Oh... Just a memory
As a memory fades

Don't stand around
Waiting for another day
Don't stand around
Forgetting yesterday
Don't live for tomorrow
Cause it might be the last train
The last train

Old man's on the sofa
With the news on the tv
He'll sit there all night
That's the way it's been, the way it'll be
Can't you see
Mama cuddles up
While the kids are in the bed
They could of had it all
But they chose love instead
Some say

Oh... Just a memory
As a memory fades
Don't stand around
Forgetting yesterday
Don't live for tomorrow
Cause it might be the last train
The last train

The way it goes
The seasons only change
I stand around waiting for another day
It all passes me by and by and by
As it goes where it goes
The seasons going by
There's a change

Don't stand around
Waiting for another day
Don't stand around
Forgetting yesterday
Don't live for tomorrow
Cause it might be the last train
The last train
