Written by Merle Haggard
Recorded by Hank Snow

C
I thought I w-as through missing you
F
I thought I was through being blue
C G7
And t-hen someone ment-ioned your n-ame
C
Some careless friend just chanced to say
F
That t-hey saw you the other day
C G7
And t-hey said you looked just the same

C F
Then I remem-bered your arms and how they held me dear
C D7 G7
But the memory only brought me that same old empty fear
C F
Now I'm right back where I started that awful day we parted
C G7 C
And all because they men-tioned your name


I told myself the hurt was gone
F
That not one memory lingered on
C G7
And t-hen someone ment-ioned your n-ame
C
They didn't mean to tear away
F
The veil that hid my yesterday
C G7
But there it was with all the same old pain

C F
For I remem-bered your kiss on the day we said goodbye
C D7 G7
Was the l-ast glowing ember of a flame that had to d-ie
C F
Now I'm right back where I started that awful day we parted
C G7 C
And all because they men-tioned your name
