don’t forget to remember me lyrics – carrie underwood

18 years had come and gone
for momma they flew by
but for me they drug on and on

we were loadin up that chevy
both tryin’ not to cry
mama kept on talkin
puttin off goodbye

then she took my hand and said
baby don’t forget

(chorus)
before you hit the highway
you better stop for gas
and there’s a fifty in the ashtray
in case you run short on cash
here’s a map and here’s a bible
if you ever lose your way
just one more thing before you leave
don’t forget to remember me

this downtown apartment
sure makes me miss home
and those bills there on the counter
keep tellin me i’m on my own

and just like every sunday
i call mama up last night
and even when it’s not
i tell her everything’s alright

before we hung up i said
hey mama don’t forget

(chorus)
to tell my baby sister
i’ll see her in the fall
and tell mee-ma that i miss her
yeah i should give her a call
and make sure you tell daddy
that i’m still his little girl
yeah i still feel like i’m where i’m supposed to be
but don’t forget to remember me

tonight i found myself
kneelin’ by the bed to pray
i haven’t done this in awhile
so i don’t know what to say

but lord i feel so small sometimes
in this big old place
yeah i know there’s more important things
but don’t forget to remember me
don’t forget to remember me
