I take it this is not the same song as the one titled "Memories Of You" (which I think is from about the same period). That one I can find easily. If it's not the same song, I'm afraid I can't help.

I'd suggest that it's best to not just say Lyrics and instead use the Lyr Req prefix and the title of the song in the thread title.

Sinsull will probably be arounf to chastize me for telling you that, but the truth is that a lot of times threads makred "Lyrics" or "Looking for a song" just get ignored.

"Memories of You Dear" was performed in a western swing style by Johnnie Lee Wills, and appears on the CD "Band's A-Rockin'," 1996. The CD consists of radio transcriptions dating between 1941 and 1951. Harley Huggins is credited as a guitarist backing Wills.

It was also recorded by Mike Auldridge, a dobro player, on "Treasures Untold," (Sugar Hill, 1990). Doc Watson appears as guest vocalist on this cut. Click here.

Doc Watson also recorded it on the LP, "Live & Pickin',"1979.

I was unable to find the lyrics.

I recently put a lot of my DOC WATSON LPs on CD
This was one of them.
Also have the Johnny Lee Wills version

Recorded by: DOC WATSON

Memories of you, dear
Fill my heart with pain
And I know you'll never
Be in my arms again
You say that you found another
You tell me you love him, too
My poor old heart is breakin'
Lord, I don't know what to do

I tried so hard to please you
But nothin' could be done
For now you're with another
And I'm left all alone

I know that I can't forget you
Although sometimes I may try
Regretting the day that I met you
I just sit alone and cry

Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may be
I'll always love you darlin'
And want you here with me
