The easy way is to do:
  memo1.lines.savetofile('YourFileNameHere.txt');
If you want to do it the hard way you would have to do;
procedure Write;
var
  F1 : TextFile;
  i : Integer;
const
  FILENAME : string = 'C:\somefile.txt';
begin
  AssignFile(F1,FILENAME);
  Rewrite(F1);
  for i := 0 to memo1.lines.count-2 do begin
    writeLn(F1,memo1.lines.strings[i]);
  end;
  write(F1,memo1.lines.strings[i]);
  CloseFile(F1);
end;

And you just call this procedure when you need to write the text to a file.  I would use the easy way unless you are saving any header or footer information.
