18 years have 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
Momma kept on talkin’
Puttin’ off good-bye
Then she took my hand and said
Baby don’t forget

Before you hit the highway
You better stop for gas
And there’s a 50 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 telling me I’m on my own
And just like every Sunday I call momma up last night
And even when it’s not, I tell her everything’s alright
Before we hung up I said
Hey momma, don’t forget

To tell my baby sister
I’ll see her in the fall
And tell mee-maw 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
Don’t forget to remember me

Tonight I find myself kneeling by my bed to pray
I haven’t done this in a while
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
