Willie Nelson - Local Memory Lyrics




The lights go out each evening at eleven
And up and down our block there's not a sound
I close my eyes and search for peaceful slumber
And just then the local mem'ry comes around
Piles of blues against the door to make sure sleep will come no more
He's the hardest working mem'ry in this town
Turns out happiness againand then lets loneliness back in
And each night the local mem'ry comes around

[guitar]

Each day I say tonight I may escape him
I pretend I'm happy and never even a frown
But at night I close my eyes and pray sleep finds me
But again the local mem'ry comes around
Rids the house of all good news then sets out my crying shoes
What a faithful mem'ry never lets me down
We're both up till light of day chasing happiness away
And each night the local mem'ry comes around
And each night the local mem'ry comes around

    And up and down our block there's not a sound
    I close my eyes and search for peaceful slumber
    And just then the local mem'ry comes around
    Piles of blues against the door to make sure sleep will come no more
    She's the hardest working mem'ry in this town
    Turns out happiness again and then lets loneliness back in
    And each night the local mem'ry comes around

    Each day I say tonight I may escape her
    I pretend I'm happy and never even a frown
    But at night I close my eyes and pray sleep finds me
    But again the local mem'ry comes around
    Rids the house of all good news then sets out my crying shoes
    What a faithful mem'ry never lets me down
    We're both up till light of day chasing happiness away
    And each night the local mem'ry comes around
    And each night the local mem'ry comes around
