Song: What A Memory
Artist: Tracy Lawrence
Transposed by: Eddie Garcia (
Capo 1st fret

On the day momma died she called daddy to her side
C                            D
And said I’ll be goin’ soon, I know it’s gonna hurt you both
                           C                       D
But promise me before I go you’ll do what I ask of you
In a big red folgers can hid behind the pots and pans
You’ll find some money that I’ve saved
And in the back of my dresser drawer
                         G             C  D
I put away a little more for a rainy day
Em                      C
Go to town and buy that new guitar
Em                      C
Cause he’s been workin’ awful hard
G               C               D   C  D
To get his own, to write his songs…


          G       Em        C
Oh what a memory, oh what a memory
         Am                     C
And even in her final moments momma thought of me
       G      C D  C D
What a memory

She was only thirty-five, I was fifteen askin’ why
C                       D
The lord took her away, he must’ve known we needed her
                                C                     D
She was an angel here on earth, I still miss her everyday

With all her friends and half the town

And her family gathered round
I bet she never felt so loved
When everybody’s heads were bowed
                                 G            C  D
I did my best to make her proud, as I stood up

Em                       C
And I sang rock of ages, cleft for me
Em                     C
As I played it on that new six string
           G                C           D   C  D
I couldn’t help but cry, as we said goodbye

(repeat chorus)

Even in her final moments
Momma thought of me
      G       C
What a memory
What a memory
