MOMENTS AND MEMORIES

SHE SET HER SIGHT ON THE LIGHT OF A NEW HORIZON
DRIFTING ALONG IN THE DAWN OF A BRAND NEW DAY
ONCE IN A WHILE SHE WOULD SMILE WHEN THE CURTAIN RISES
MOMENTS AND MEMORIES FADED TO SHADES OF GRAY

IF YOU WANNA GO DOWNTOWN
OH, YOU'VE BEEN AROUND TOWN
IF YOU WANNA GO DOWNTOWN
WELL, THAT'S ALRIGHT BY ME

SITTING ALONE, IN A ROOM IN A HOME, SHE'S WAITING
SHEDDING A TEAR FOR THE YEARS THAT WENT BY SO FAST
IF SHE RECALLS THEM AT ALL THEY’RE LIKE SHADOWS FADING
SLIPPING AWAY, AS THE MEMORIES NEVER LAST

IF YOU WANNA GO DOWNTOWN
OH, YOU'VE BEEN AROUND TOWN
IF YOU WANNA GO DOWNTOWN
WELL, THAT'S ALRIGHT BY ME

I DON'T WANNA CRY
I DON'T WANNA LIE
I JUST WANNA SAY GOODBYE
TO YOU

about

Jack Nimersheim Fort Mitchell, Kentucky

Fifty years!

A half-century. That's how much time has passed since I first stepped on stage, picked up a guitar, and started playing music for the folks "out there".

Lucky for you, no recordings exist of those early performances. The albums on this page, however, provide a pretty good retrospective of the music I've been fortunate enough to help create, over the past fifty years.

Enjoy...
