Teach Me to Forget Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

You taught me how to love with all my heart
With all my soul I trusted you
And now you say, we'll have to live apart
A thing I don't know how to do

You say, someday I'll find somebody new
And I'll have not one regret
Stay a while if what you say is true
Stay and teach me to forget

You taught me how to worship you alone
And now you say that you must go
And people call me on the telephone
Just to say, I told you so

You say, someday I'll find somebody new
And I'll have not one regret
Stay a while if what you say is true
Stay and teach me to forget
Stay and teach me to forget
