Verse 1

They caught a bus outtaí Witchita to go chasiní down his dreams
Heíd lost his soul to a six string restiní underneath his seat
She said goodbye to Daddy hugged her Mama then she cried
As they stepped into a Greyhound with their Memíries of The Night

Verse 2

Under the neon lights in Nashville his sun began to shine
He played that same old six string each and every night
She was missiní Kansas and the way things used to be
One day she left a note it said, I didnít want to leave

Chorus

But itís every day lonely in my every day life
Every night itís the same dream a dream that never dies
Morniní comes as always like a bitter sweet good bye
And thereís no one to hold on to only my Memíries of The Night

Verse 3

Now the sun shines through his window and heís blinded by the light
So he grabs the whiskey bottle that helped him through last night
He thinks about her letter even after all this time
As he strums a dusty six string he remembers every line

Revised Chorus (2)

And itís every day lonely in his every day life
Every night itís the same dream a dream that never dies
Morniní comes as always like a bitter sweet goodbye
And thereís no one to hold on to only his Memíries of The Night

Bridge

From a long time ago a memíry comes to mind
One I canít let go of no matter how I try
She was like an Angel Heaven sent her for awhile
Then she spread her wings and left me these Memíries of The Night

Repeat Chorus 2

TAG

And thereís no one to hold on to only my Memíries of The Night
