A mailbox barely standing by the driveway, I can almost read the name. But the expression on his face would make me think That he could almost read my mind. 'Cause there's no happiness in music If somebody isn't close enough to here A swing-set and forgotten toys Where little girls and boys played happy games That Johnson boy from down the road Was askin' if the kids could come and play I picked a ragged daisy from it's home Out in the corner the yard Everything I ever cared about is gone now But the memory still remains. Lord I wish I could have told him yes But I just said, 'I guess no, not today.' 'She loves me - She loves me not, ' Now I don't have to wonder anymore. [CHORUS] I just came home to count the memories That I've been counting in my mind I just came home to count the memories Of a better day and time. I guess it's time to say good-bye
