HANK LOCKLIN CHAINED TO A MEMORY LYRICS

Makes no difference if we two are far apart dear
I could never ever love somebody new
Cause there isn't any room inside my heart dear
While I'm chained to a memory of you

I could never tell another I belong to them
All those whispered words of love would not be true
I could never tell another that I long for them
Cause I'm chained to a memory of you
[ steel ]
Maybe time will wear the links away and then dear
They will break and set me free to love a new
But I'll never love someone else again dear
while I'm chained to a memory of you

If the world should end tomorrow I'd be satisfied
Cause you're gone and there is nothing I can do
All my dreams and precious hopes of yesterday have died
Yet I'm chained to a memory of you
