Subject: Lyr Add: REMEMBER ME (Scotty Wiseman)
Remember Me is a Scotty Wiseman song. He was half of the well known singing duo, Lulu Belle and Scotty. Last weekend I was privileged to hear Ruth McLain Smith sing this with the Grandpa Jones Band at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas. Over the years there have been many great versions, Lulu Belle and Scotty themselves, T Texas Tyler, on and on ~~ but I have to rate Ruth's version right up there with the best.

I have several versions, including the Wisemans (available on The Sweethearts of Country Music, Starday CD 206, re released in 1991) ~~ here it is

Remember Me
Scott Wiseman (as sung by Lulu Belle and Scotty)

The sweetest songs belong to lovers in the gloaming
The sweetest days were the days that used to be
The saddest words I ever heard were words of parting
When you said, "Sweetheart, Remember Me"

Remember me, when the candle lights are gleaming
Remember me at the close of a long, long day
It would be so sweet when all alone I'm dreaming
Just to know you still remember me

You told me once that you were mine alone forever
And I was yours 'til end of eternity
But all our vows are broken now and you will never
Be the same except in memory
