Never Tends to Forget

Whatever happened to Mandolin Steve

His pickin’ hand done up and quit

Don’t buy wedding rings from second hand stores

You get what you pay for my friend

 

Whatever happened to Mary Celeste

A picture that hangs on the wall

Her namesake’s the daughter of a bankruptcy lawyer

Or a drummer; she lives with her mom.

 

Don’t say never when you really mean not yet

Don’t say forever, forever tends to forget

 

Whatever happened to Big Daddy Arnold

Patriarch, Black Willie’s boss

He left Mother Ethel alone in Mobile

How they loved that Old Rugged Cross

 

Don’t say never when you really mean not yet

Don’t say forever, forever tends to forget

 

I guess success was not in the cards

Maybe we didn’t pray hard enough

If you’re not here then you can’t leave

No read, no weep

 

It rained today but it won’t always be this way

Look out your window and tell me what you see

Red skies at night are a sailor’s delight

And the pipes are calling for me

 

Don’t say never when you really mean not yet

Don’t say forever, forever tends to forget

Forever tends to forget

Forever tends to forget
