SILVER MEDALS AND SWEET MEMORIES (Don Reid) The Statler Brothers - 1976 Just a picture on a table, just some letters Mama saved And a costume brooch from England that has on the back engraved "To Eileen, I love you, London, 1943" But she never heard from him again, and he never heard of me And the war still ain't over for Mama Every night in her dreams she still sees The young face of someone who brought her Silver medals and sweet memories In Mama's bedroom closet, to this day on her top shelf There's a flag folded three-cornered, layin' by itself The sergeant would surely be honored to know how pretty she still is And after all these lonely years, his Eileen still lives And the war still ain't over for Mama Every night in her dreams she still sees The young face of someone who brought her Silver medals and sweet memories Silver medals and sweet memories
