Remember the Days

Remember the Days
By Joe Leeak

(Am)Remember the days when the lights burned bright
(Dm)Forget the times when we feared the night
(E7)Remember the days when life would never (Am)end

(Dm)Remember the times when we (Am)danced all night
(Dm)Never walked (Am)away from a fight
(Dm)Remember the days when (Am)life would (E7)never (Am)end
(E7)Never (Am)end

Remember the days when the air was clean
The skies the bluest we'd ever seen
Remember the days when life would never end


Remember the nights when the moon was high
And we stood and howled at the sky
Remember the days when life would never end


1st verse


The original idea, and the chorus, for this song came to me after the deaths of my parents, Don and Marjorie Leeak, in 2007.  They lived good lives, made a lot of good decisions throughout their lives, and were always honest and caring people.  You can read more about them at:

'Deed I Do

Here's a video I put together of my friend Phil and I playing the song 'Deed I Do.
(warning: it probably won't sound very good on teeny little laptop speakers)
