Willie Nelson - I'm A Memory Lyrics

I'm a game that you used to play
I'm a plan that you didn't lay so well
I'm a fire that burns in your mind
Close your eyes I'm a memory
I'm a love that you know from a song
I'm a voice on a green telephone
And I'm a day that lasted so long
Close your eyes I'm a memory
I'm a dream that comes with the night
And I'm a face that fades with the light
And I'm a tear that falls out of sight
Close your eyes I'm a memory

  1. Mandy Mine

    Always loved this song, still do. Thanks for posting this.

  2. Jason Atkins

    I like the orchestra in the background.

  3. GrindFreakMike

    good tune, but theres so many different versions of this song and id say the one I heard from mid 70's was better, id like to hear it again but cant find it, all I know is it was song #18 off of a greatest hits album, but cant find it ,if some one knows about this please post it

  4. Steve Nesmith

    I like this original version much better than the later ones Willie put out without the orchestra music.

    J.W. Gauntt

    very welcome

  9. Tibor Mészáros

    I'm sorry Willie, but I do like Brenda's version much better. In my opinion this is rather a female song


    Tibor Mészáros I'm sorry,but YOU'RE TOTALLY WAY OFF THE MARK! This version by Willie IS the best,underscored by Willie's magnificent guitar solo.This version ROCKS! Brenda Lee's version doesn't even come close!

  10. David Liu

    Ironically Willy is far from just a memory
