    Lyrics

    The class reunion invitation was delivered to me today
    It brought back burning mem'ries of a happy yesterday
    I went to my cedar chest got down on my knees
    The chest that once was full of hope is now a box of memories.

    As I carefully open up the box my mind wanders back
    To all the things we used to do me and Billy Jack
    Here's the first note he wrote and gave me in the hall
    It asked if I'd stay after school to watch him play football
    The chest that once was full of hope is now a box of memories.

    Here are the tickets dubbed for my first picture show
    I'd seen him talkin' to Rita Gail and I almost didn't go
    The forage I wrote to the senior prom pressed and dried
    The scarf he tied around my hair for a motorcycle ride
    The chest that once was full of hope is now a box of memories.

    Here's his lettered sweater with a patch Player of the year
    And the handkerchief I'd used to wipe away all my tears
    When he was playing chicken to prove the greatness of his nerve
    And a speeding car killed my dreams on Dead Man's Kerb
    The chest that once was full of hope is now a box of memories.

    Yes, the chest that once was full of hope is now a box of memories...
