By: Dolly Parton

Engraved in my mind there are pictures
Memories of a love I knew one time
So often in my thoughts I stand looking
At the memories hanging on the wall of my mind

I see a memory of raindrops
Falling in the park on the day we met
Walking with each other through the rain
Laughing, talkin' as we both got soakin' wet

The memory made that day, I could never put away
That's the day he told me he'd be mine
And that's just one of the memories
He left hanging on the wall of my mind

And I have a memory of springtime
Cherry blossoms and birds singing all the while
And the secret place we'd hide and lay together side by side
And the love that shined so brightly in his eyes

Springtime I recall was the sweetest time of all
That's the season our hearts became entwine
And that's just one of the memories
He left hanging on the wall of my mind

Through the spring and summer he loved me
Then his love died with autumn leaves
His love was the wild and restless kind
When he left, he left with me so many memories
He left them hanging on the wall of my mind, on my mind
Mhm mhm hanging on the wall of my mind
He left them hanging on my mind
