I Can't Remember Lyrics

by Connie Smith

It was late and I was sleepin' when he called
And I can't remember much he said at all
Just that he was leavin' town and must get off the phone
I can't remember when he told me he'd be home

Did he say, "Sunday noon" or, "One day soon"
I think he left with Dan but what if he said, "Ann"
Did they go to meet the train or leave to catch a plane
I can't remember but I can't forget he's gone

So I telephoned his house and asked his mom
If she'd knew where her little boy had gone
I know she must have told me and I heard her loud and clear
But I can't remember anything but tears

Did she say, "Fishing trip" or "He gave you the slip"
Is he off to see the world or to see another girl
Did she say, "He took the car" or "What a fool you are"
I can't remember but I can't forget he's gone
I can't remember but I can't forget he's gone
