Golden Memories    (1981)

I've got golden memories
I've got silver threads a windin' though my hair
Oh baby, but there'll be good times enough to share

I ain't young, but I ain't old
Well, I 'll keep you warm tonight against the cold
Oh baby, don't that bitter wind, honey, don't you blow

Oh but I know
Old Father Time he's got a mean side on him
He's gonna make me drink that wine
He's gonna steal my life, he'll do it in time
You can't beat the devil, but you can rob that sucker blind

Oh my daddy was a gypsy
My mama was a honky tonker's dream
Me, I just showed up to spoil their scene

Talked Dirty Harry to my bedroom
I let that mean, evil man have his way
Oh, mama, why'd you raise your daughter this way?

Oh, but I know
Old Father Time he's got a mean side on him
He's gonna make me drink that wine
He's gonna steal my life, he'll do it in time
You can't beat the devil, but you can rob that sucker blind

I've got golden memories
I've got silver threads a windin' though my hair
Oh baby, but I've got good times enough to share
Yes, I do
Oh baby, I've got good times enough to share
