I'll Feed It A Mem'ry


This is a song I originally wrote in 1978. I was playing in a country band in Germany at the time. Other than the BIAB backing tracks, it's pretty much the same as it was back then. We played it almost every night for quite a few years.

It's pretty straight forward country of the time. I posted this on SoundCloud just before I had to leave this forum several months ago. I didn't get a chance to post it here until now. Unfortunately, i can't find the list of tracks and the style at the moment. If I find them, I'll come back on insert them. There's no doubt it's BIAB!

Thanks in advance. Any comments or suggestions are welcomed. I realize that vocals are the weakest point of my musical talents. But that comes in handy if there's someone I really want to annoy!

I'll post the lyric in just a while ... maybe an hour from now. I need to go tend to Di's last dose of meds for the day and then get her tucked into bed.

I'll Feed It A Mem'ry
(c) 1978 Alan D. David, BMI

(v1)
Sometimes in the middle of the night when I'm almost fast asleep
My arms reach out to hold you then my eyes begin to weep
My arms can't find you and they don't know what to do
My heart begins to break and there's only one thing to do

CHORUS
I'll feed it a mem'ry, a mem'ry of you
Green eyes and raven hair, a love that was always true
Then I'll ask it to forgive me for being a fool
Then I'll feed it a mem'ry, a mem'ry of you

(v2)
Only a simple fool would have done you the way that I did
Now I'm lying here without you all alone in this big double bed
What I'd give if I hadn't lied, or hadn't been untrue
When my heart begins to ache, there's only one thing to do

CHORUS
I'll feed it a mem'ry, a mem'ry of you
Green eyes and raven hair, a love that was always true
Then I'll ask it to forgive me for being a fool
Then I'll feed it a mem'ry, a mem'ry of you

Tag
A mem'ry of you

The vocal works well in the setting.
Nice narrative...nice songs too.
This is classic country Al.
Well done.
It'd be nice to hear more about playing in Germany in the mid 70s too.


Cheers

Hi Ray ...

Thanks a lot. I lived in Germany 12 years in the 1970s and 1980s. For 5 of those years, our band backed up the country stars who didn't bring their own band - it was very, very expensive to do so. But most of our money came from playing gigs 22 - 28 nights week for most of the 12 years. We performed mostly in southwestern Germany - in towns like Kaiserslautern, Manheim, Heidelberg, Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Darmstadt, Bad Kreuznach, etc. We played a lot of the smaller towns, too. Hey - the money all spent very nicely, no matter who wrote the check/cheque!

Thanks again. Take care ...

Alan

This is a really well written song that fits the late 70's country sound. It's a good arrangement and production done by you today.

Enjoyed my listen and I hope you're doing well.

Alan,

Love this... You have such a feel for this era of country music.

It sounds as though it could have been written for Charlie Rich.

EXCELLENT!

Alan,

You've nailed that '70's Classic Country thing. In both the write and the production.

Even the title harkens back to the era..

Enjoyed.

Sweet sounds of the 70s, Alan. Not sure what kind of person could be annoyed by your vocal. The story is very engaging. Love that idea "I'll feed it a mem'ry of you." Very touching. Well said!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Charlie ...

Always a pleasure to hear from you. Di and I are both doing somewhat better. Thanks for the comment. I grew up playing what is now labeled Traditional Country - Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Gene Watson, Joe Stampley, Barbara Mandrell, etc.

I'm glad this sits well in your ears as a good representation of the era. Wishing you trhe very best ...

Hi Bob ...

I hadn't thought about this being something Charlie Rich might have sung. But I think you're right. Thanks for your kind words. Best to you ...

Hello Floyd ...

I always look forward to your comments. Thank you for validating my interpretation of the era. I'm guessing I'm about 12 - 15 years older than you. You probably heard the tail end of this genre before country started moving a little more pop-sounding. I actively played live from 1963 through 2008.

Many thanks for your time to listen and comment so kindly. Best to you ...

Alan

Hey Marty ...
It's a very long line of folks who have been annoyed by my vocals. But I just keep doing what I do. Sometimes it works out pretty good - a few times, not so good. But I enjoy it either way. Thanks for the nice comments - sure so appreciate them! Take care ...

HI David ...

At my age, everything I remember could be classified as "classic"! I don't go into antique stores any more - they want to hang a price tag on my ear. Thanks for the listen - I appreciate it. Take care.
