No One Remembers

 

A change of clothes is fallin'

A tamer time to listen much closer

Wait a while a little longer

The boats go up and I'm comin' down

 

Passion nursery rhymes

Older days to nights so cold

Workin' by the stars and the skies

The boats go up and I'm comin' down

 

            No one remembers

            Like one who knows

            No one remembers

            Like one who knows

 

Winter drowns so hollow

Freeze that dollar so high upon my brow

Close the doorway back in sorrow

The boats go up and I'm comin' down

 

(Chorus)

 

They keep me on this river

Totin' cases o' beer outta freight cars

Takin' breaks right by the soundin'

The boats go up and I'm comin' down

 

(Chorus)

 

(Repeat last verse)

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
