flashback blues

John Prine

 CG7
 While window shopping through the past
 CF
 I ran across a looking glass
 CG7CG7
Reflecting moments remaining in a burned out light 
 CG7
 Tragic magic prayers of passion
 CF
 Stay the same through changing fashions
 CG7C
They freeze my mind like water on a winter's night

 D7
 Spent most of my youth
 G7
Out hobo cruising
 D7
 And all I got for proof
 G7
Is rocks in my pockets and dirt in my shoes
 CG7
So goodbye nonbeliever
 CF
Don't you know that I hate to leave here
 CG7C
 So long babe, I got the flashback blues.

 CG7
 Photographs show the laughs
 CF
 Recorded in between the bad times
 CG7C
 Happy sailors dancing on a sinking ship
 CG7
 Cloudy skies and dead fruit flies
 CF
 Waving goodbye with tears in my eyes
 CG7C
 Well, sure I made it but ya know it was as hell of a trip.

 D7
 Spent most of my youth
 G7
Out hobo cruising
 D7
 And all I got for proof
 G7
Is rocks in my pockets and dirt in my shoes
 CG7
And ten times what it grieves you
 CF
 That's how much more I hate to leave you now
 CG7C
 So long babe, I got the flashback blues.

 And all I got for proof
 G7
Is rocks in my pockets and dirt in my shoes
 CG7
So goodbye nonbeliever
 CF
Don't you know that I hate to leave here

 So long babe, I got the flashback blues.
