Paycheck, Johnny - Turnin' Off A Memory Lyrics



You can find me in a dim light barroom
If your coldness should ever turn warm
But the chances of you ever changing
Are as slim as your two loving arms

So I'm turning off a memory
As quickly as time will allow
Yes, I'm turning off a memory
And the wine seems to help me somehow

If he's lucky he'll someday forget her
When the wine finally takes full control
But that's not much of a future to look to
But I can't stand to see the pain in his soul

And he's turning off a memory
As quickly as time will allow
Yes, I'm turning off a memory
And the wine seems to help me somehow
Yes, the wine seems to help somehow
Yes, I'm turning off a memory

Paycheck, Johnny Turnin' Off A Memory Comments
  1. George Moore

    people commenting who does this song better but the combination of Merle and Johnny paycheck makes this the best version of a MERLE HAGGARD song.

    Not bad. But Youtube's list generator is STUPID. This is in a list of Little Darlin years.

  18. brenda garten

    love this song do not believe in drinking but love Johnny's singing this

  19. brenda garten

    I think Johnny sings this song better than Merle did

    Clancy Kobane

    True. john could easily impersonate george, merle, and few others, to perfection. and his own voice was in a class by itself.

    Joey Adams

    brenda garten good az it will ever get

  20. brenda garten

    so very pretty

  21. twinPaula12

    Love this one by Johnny. When he sings a ballad he puts so much soul into it as if he's living it. It's good to hear Merle here, too. These artists are the greatest. This is pure country gold - perfect - and the lyrics say so much that makes country what it should be. Thank you for posting this winner. - Paula

  22. David Corn
