Meme’s Story                                                       

                            

Darlin’ let me tell you a love story about your Papaw and me. 

The first time I saw him, oh I knew that he was for me. 

It took long enough but then one day, he asked me to be his wife.

 

Chorus:                

For fifty years through thick and thin we stood side-by-side.

And, it’s not a bed of roses, but when you find it keep it for life.

         

One day he took me in his arms and said “I’m going away.”

I held him real tight and said “Don’t you leave.  Stay with me please.

‘Cause I don’t want to be in this world without you.” 

But in a heartbeat, he was gone.

 

Now, I stand by his grave and I start to cry.  “God, has he told you about me?”

But, I love that man just as much today.  “Has he even mentioned my name?”

For fifty years through thick and thin we stood side-by-side.

And, it’s not a bed of roses, but when you find it keep it for life.

         

No, it’s not a bed of roses, but when you find it keep it for life.
