Country Music/Old song.

Question
I have the lyrics to an old song in my head. As a kid I never listened to country music but I heard this song and NEVER forgot it.  Can you help me find it? I believe it was sung by a male artist.  Here is all I remember..

I love you more in just a few hours than most people do in all of their years
And now though you're gone
I still have you with me
The sweetest reflections fill the loneliest tears
And I'll spend my life loving a memory
Chasing?.....???

Answer
"Loving a Memory" by Bill Anderson
I loved you more in just a few hours than most people love in all of their years
And now though you're gone I still have you with me
The sweetest reflections fill the loneliest tears
And I'll spend my life loving a mem'ry
chasing a rainbow without any gold
I spend my nights dreaming about you
loving a mem'ry I never can hold
Oh what a mark you left on my body
destroyed my heart and crippled my mind
And if I should live until I'm one hundred I'll never forget you
there's not enough time
And I'll spend my life... Loving a mem'ry I never can hold

I am a long time fan of Bluegrass and older country/folk music (20-70's) and have a fairly extensive tape and sheet music library of the same and have played the music non-professionally for many years. I can (hopefully) assist with information about artists and lyrics. Please try to make it the older stuff, I don't listen to much "modern" country except George Strait anymore....it ain't got no soul anymore :)

Experience

I grew up in the 60's listening to all the old greats and learned to play the music. I have spent a lot of time reading about the genres and have gotten a chance to meet several of the big names over the years.
