Nelson, Willie - Your Memory Won't Die In My Grave Lyrics

Been feelin' kind of free
But I sure do feel lonesome
Baby's takin' a trip
But she ain't takin' me

I've been feelin' kinda free
But I'd rather feel your arms around me
'Cause you're takin' away
Ev'rything that I wanted

There's an old hollow tree
Where we carved our initials
And I said I love you
And you said you love me

It's a mem'ry today
It'll be a mem'ry tomorrow
I hope you'll be happy someday
(And) Your mem'ry won't die in my grave

[repeat last two verses]

    Because of my position at Radio City I know Willie very well. Willie is as down to, earth as a mud fence.A super talent,an icon .a legend .

    Margaret Mc Sweeney

    I wonder would you be able to help me find a song that Willie Nelson sang in a film that he featured in . Now this is the problem I cannot remember the title of the film or the song but I do remember it was about electric pylons being erected on people's land . The upshot of it was that a large pylon was erected overnight outside one of the politicians. I think the film was shown in the early 1980s. There was a lovely song in the film which I would love to hear again ! So it is a long shot. If anyone would be able to piece the bits of information that I have shared and help I would be delighted. Thanking you all in advance.
