I'VE GOT PRECIOUS MEMORIES (Billy Deaton / Ellen Crandell / Sam Givens) Faron Young - 1968 I was walkin' home from work last night And I got so tired and thirsty The fool inside of me said, "Stop! One drink's alright" Then I walked into a barroom and that's where I met temptation Though I fought to keep control of me, temptation won the fight Now I've got precious mem'ries, they're all I've got to cling to Precious memories are all I've got to hold I've got mem'ries of a sweet wife and mem'ries of a good life That was just before temptation told my sweet wife all she knows She had long black hair and eyes as blue as Heaven And the dress she wore fit her much too tight And that's when passion called me and I answered And though I fought to keep control of me, temptation won the fight Now I've got precious mem'ries they're all I've got to cling to Precious memories are all I've got to hold I've got mem'ries of a sweet wife and mem'ries of a good life That was just before temptation told my sweet wife all she knows (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2011)
