From the recording This Old Town

Words by Earl Pike, Earlene Pike and Judy Daigle. Music by Earl Pike and Fred Pike


I’d like to be another girl in your memory.
I can’t stand the way that you’re always hurtin me.
If just for once you’d look at me and just push me aside
‘cause I stand the way you’re hurtin me inside.

I’ve always loved you and wanted you for my own.
But you go out with the girls that drink and dance until dawn
Now if you ever change your mind and want someone that’s true
I will always be around to warm and comfort you

If you could learn to be true I would come to you.
But I won’t come to be just another fool.
If my love’s enough for you I will give you more
but I won’t let you break my heart anymore.
