SOUVENIRS (John Prine) John Prine (with Steve Goodman) - 1972 All the snow has turned to water Christmas days have come and gone Broken toys and faded colours Are all that's left to linger on I hate graveyards and old pawn shops For they always bring me tears Can't forgive the way they rob me Of my childhood souvenirs Memories they can't be bought 'an They can't be won at carnivals for free Well, it took me years to get those souvenirs And I don't know how they slipped away from me (Instrumental Break) Broken hearts and dirty windows Make life difficult to see That's why last night and this mornin' Always look the same to me I hate readin' old love letters For they always bring me tears Can't forgive the way they rob me Of my sweetheart's souvenirs Memories they can't be bought 'an They can't be won at carnivals for free Well, it took me years to get those souvenirs And I don't know how they slipped away from me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2013)
