Dear Carol,

Thought you might add to your collections two items I found during a spring cleanout.  No need to send them back.

Take care and God bless!

Graduation Day

- Joe Sherman / Noel Sherman, 1956

(Beach Boys version recorded 05/05/65)

There's a time a for joy
A time for tears
A time we'll treasure through the years
We'll remember always
Graduation day

At the senior prom
We danced 'til three
And there you gave your heart to me
We'll remember always
Graduation day

Though we leave in sorrow
All the joys we've known
We can face tomorrow
Knowing we'll never walk alone
When the ivy walls
Are far behind
No matter where our paths may wind
We'll remember always
Graduation day
We'll remember always
Graduation day
