Will You Remember Me

I.



Will you remember me

When I've turned old and gray

Will you remember me

When I have no spoken word to say



2.



Will you remember me

When my life has come and gone

Will you remember me

When my heart and my soul they move on

Will you

remember

me



3.



Will you remember me

And all the poems I've let live

Will you remember me

When I have nothing more to give



4.



Will you remember me

When I no longer known my name

Will you remember me

When to the wind they scatter my remains



(Bridge)



Will you remember me

Cause I'll remember you

The smiles on yours faces

My many trips to Backspace

How the lights were brought low

The starting time of every show

I ask you

Will you

Remember

me



Cause I'll

remember you

(ADD LIB)



Will you remember me

And all the poems I've let live

Will you remember me

When I have nothing more to give



Will you remember me

When I no longer known my name

Will you remember me

When to the wind they scatter my remains



Will you remember me

Cause I'll remember you



Will you remember me

Will you

Remember

me

  1. I can't say I'll remember specific words from you, emmett - I'm lousy at rote - but I'll certainly remember you as a poet and a man who loved words and life.
