John Anderson — You Can't Keep A Good Memory Down lyrics

I sold the house we lived in
And moved a thousand miles to get away
But the feeling that I'm running from
Was waiting here when I unpacked today

She's on my mind and in my heart
I hear her voice, what a haunting sound
You can leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down

I wandered through these city streets
Oh, I feel so out of place
And in this crowd of strangers
Everywhere I turn I see her face
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/john-anderson-you-cant-keep-a-good-memory-down-lyrics.html ]
Oh, it's hard to know just what to do
Or where to go, where hurt don't hang around
You can leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down

You can start your life all over
Go somewhere where everything is new
But if there's a memory strong enough
It won't let go of you

Oh, she's on my mind and in my heart
I hear her voice, what a haunting sound
You can leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down
Oh, you may leave the past behind you
But you can't keep a good memory down
