I Never Tho't.

Unpublished Works, © 1997, BillyPauleyJr.*

I Never Tho’t.

There’s a face,
It looks so familiar,
But ain’t it peculiar,
O’, I just can’t place it now,
Somewhere, some place,
I think I knew her,
Could’ve meant something to her,
O’, but I really don’t know how,

I was just a young boy living in that Texas town,
Lord knows, I got around,
But I didn’t always see,
O’, drinkin’ to forget, you can forget a lot,
Lord, I never tho’t,
She might remember me,

There’s a place,
It seems I’ve been thru’,
But I cannot get to,
O’, just to picture her, no,
And yet, her name,
I know I’ve sung it,
O’, but I couldn’t hum it,
Not to save my soul,

I was just a young boy living in that Texas town,
Lord knows, I got around,
But I didn’t always see,
O’, drinkin’ to forget, you can forget a lot,
Lord, I never tho’t,
She might remember me,

And I know it would be easier,
If I lied right now and said,
That the song was in my heart,
O’, and her face was in my head,
But to tell the truth,
I don’t remember her at all,
Not the way it stood then,
Not the way we let it fall,

O’, there’s a voice,
It sounds like it knows me,
It’s trying to show me,
A time that was my own,
I’m making a choice,
To sing that song again,
To get to know a friend,
O’, like I’ve never known,

I was just a young boy living in that Texas town,
Lord knows, I got around,
O’, but I was too blind to see,
And drinkin’ to forget, I sure forgot a lot,
Lord, I never tho’t,
She might remember me,
O’, she might remember me.
