(To Remember You By)

By Johnny Dee
1957 Cedarwood

Just a scratched up head and a banged up chin
And an eye that's black and blue
And an ear that's deaf and a beer that's left
On a Dear John note from you
That's all I've got to remember you by
That's all I've got to remember you by

Well, a pocketfull of sneers and a bucketful of tears
And a nose that's out of place
There's splinters all around where the door fell down
When you slammed it in my face
That's all I've got . . .

Now my head's healed up and my ears are clear
And my nose is good as new
The door's replaced and I didn't waste
Anytime replacing you
That's all I've got . . .
