Subject:  Some Memories....
Message: 
A solitary whippoorwill
Is singing in the night
I watch until he spreads his wings
And he sails into the sky

Somewhere in the distance
I can hear his plaintful song
He said some memories
Are better left alone

Have you ever seen a freight train
Rolling down the track
Eighty wheels on a thread of steel
Never looking back

Even when I was young
It still chilled me to the bone
Yes some memories
Are better left alone

Do you ever have a longing for
A pure and simple time
When all we had between us
Was a dream and one thin dime

And we were flat out on the highway
With no place to be but gone
Yes some memories
Are better left alone

Well I feel just like that whippoorwill
Singing in the night
Trying once again to sleep
I turn out the light

Lying in the darkness
I am waiting for the dawn
Yes some memories
Are better left alone

I am lying in the darkness
Waiting for the dawn
Lord some memories
Are better left alone
