Sweet Memories: Video-Lyrics by Buffy Sainte-Marie

"Sweet Memories" From Album "Moonshot" by Buffy Sainte-Marie

My world's like a river
It's as dark as deep
Night after night the past slips in
And gathers on my sleep
My days are just an endless dream
Of emptiness to me
Filled only by the fleeting moments
Of his memories
Sweet Memories
Sweet Memories
He slipped into the silence
Of my dreams last night
Wandering from road to road
He's trailing on each night
His laughter spills like water
Water from the river to the sea
I'm swept away from sadness
Clinging to his memory
Sweet Memories
Sweet Memories

Sainte-Marie is incorrectly credited (above) with having written the lyrics. Mickey Newbury wrote the music and lyrics.

Hermosa voz y un texto maravilloso.
Sainte Marie, ¿Podrías cantar en alguna lengua originaria? Sé que los anglófonos y francófonos de Canadá te condenarán. Pero los hombres y mujeres nativas reconocerán en tu hermosa voz la validez de sus creencias, la validez de sus raices. Gracias

I have always loved this beautiful song, and haven't heard it in many, many years. I'm so glad I came across it. Beautiful voice.
