Asleep At The Wheel
"Gone But Not Forgotten" lyrics

Gone But Not Forgotten

As a younger man I moved up to Alaska
To bring that oil down from Prudo Bay
I made so much money
I coulda bought Nebraska
Spent half of it on whiskey
The other half on women
The other half well I just threw away

Well it's gone but not forgotten
I've shed some tears but I have no regrets
Well I think about that money often
Lord it may be gone but not forgotten yet

Had a shrimpboat by the name of Polyanna
Spent more time on the sea than on the shore
Till a storm blew up
Off the coast of Louisiana
It rained and it thundered
She capsized and went under
Now there ain't no Polyanna anymore

Well it's gone but not forgotten
I've shed some tears but I have no regrets
I think about old Polyanna often
Lord she may be gone but not forgotten yet

Loved a lovely senorita from El Paso
Had to lasso her and she was quite a catch
Well I showered her with hugs and kisses
Till she ran away
With some gringo from Milwaukee
And all that woman taught me
Was never count my chickens before they hatch

Well she's gone but not forgotten
I've shed some tears but I have no regrets
Well I think about that woman often
Lord she may be gone but not forgotten yet

Well she's gone but not forgotten
I've shed some tears but I have no regrets
Well I think about that woman often
Lord she may be gone but not forgotten yet
Lord she may be gone but not forgotten yet
