"Don't Forget To Remember Me"
(Ashley Gorley / Morgane Hayes)

Eighteen years had come and gone
For mama they flew by
But for me they drug on and on
We were loadin' up that Chevy

Both tryin' not to cry
Mama kept on talkin' puttin' off goodbye
Then she took my hand and said
Baby don't forget

Before you hit the highway you better stop for gas
And there's a fifty in the ashtray in case you run short on cash
Here's a map and here's a Bible if you ever lose your way
Just one more thing before you leave
Don't forget to remember me

This downtown apartment sure makes me miss home
And those bills there on the counter
Keep tellin' me I'm on my own
Just like every Sunday I called mama up last night
And even when it's not I tell her everything's all right
Before we hung up I said
Hey mama don't forget

To tell my baby sister I'll see her in the fall
Tell mee-maw that I miss her yeah I should give her a call
And make sure that you tell daddy that I'm still his little girl
Yeah I still feel like I'm where I'm supposed to be
But don't forget to remember me

Tonight I find myself kneelin' by the bed to pray
Haven't done this in a while so I don't know what to say
But Lord I feel so small sometimes in this big old place
Yeah I know there's more important things
But don't forget to remember me
Don't forget to remember me
