MEMORY OF A ROSE, THE Kennedy / Young as rec by Vera Lynn 1941 also rec by Helen Forrest w Benny Goodman & his Orch One night a troubadour came from the west, He sang about the one he loved the best. With sorrow in his heart he strolled along, As to a world apart he sang his song; The memeory of a rose is with me as I wander, The memory of a rose thrown from a window high. A dream that never goes is calling me out yonder, And so I take my way, Day by day, With the memory of a rose. One stolen hour, a promise made and broken, A lovely bride once said "I will!", but not to me! The south wind, when it blows, brings only recollection; There's nothing else to bring, So I cling To the memory of a rose. The south wind, when it blows, brings only recollection; There's nothing else to bring, So I cling To the memory of a rose. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2011)
