"Someone Mentioned Your Name" as written by Charlie Stewart, Danny Dill and Hank Snow....
I thought I was through missing you
I thought I was through being blue
And then someone mentioned your name
Some careless friend just chanced to say
That they saw you the other day
And they said you looked just the same

Then I remembered your arms
And how they held me dear
But the memory only brought me
That same old empty fear
Now I'm right back where I started
That awful day we parted
And all because they mentioned your name

I told myself the hurt was gone
That not one memory lingered on
And then someone mentioned your name
They didn't mean to tear away
The veil that hid my yesterday
But there it was with all the same old pain

For I remembered your kiss
On the day we said goodbye
Was the last glowing ember
Of a flame that had to die
Now I'm right back where I started
That awful day we parted
And all because they mentioned your name
