I'll Just Take These
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics

I think that I
Will just take a memory
A small one that I know
Real well, then go

What I'll take is all
The happy thoughts I can recall
But I know there won't be much
That I can bear to touch

So I'll just take
What my mind can stand
'Cause there's not a lot
That you can hold
In trembling hands

Just these last few hopeful things
That we left lay
Then quickly leave before
Any more
Get in my way

Dwight is country music! The stuff they call country nowadays is crap!

Tommy Randolph

Obviously you can learn to love his music but from the first time I heard Dwight I was hooked. I'm hard wired for this type of music.
