Childhood Memories  Iris DeMent

[F]Fireflies inside of a [Bb]mason jar.
[C]Acting big behind the wheel of [F]daddy's car.
[Dm]Playing church around the old [Bb]piano stand,
[G]You were quite a [G7]preacher and no, we [C]sang so grand.
I [F]remember every night what we would [Bb]say and do:
"I[C]f you've forgiven me, then I'v[F]e forgiven you."
[F]And now when life begins to get the [Bb]best of me,
I [F]reminisc[C]e these childhood [F]memories.
W[F]e built a raft and travelled all [Bb]around the world,
And [C]stopped for penny candy at the [F]corner store.
You [Dm]let me fly your kite but then I [Bb]dropped the string.
I [G]thought my life was [G7]over, but Mama [C]rescued me.
When [F]I was just a kid you taught my[Bb] prayers to me.
[C]Then you turned around and you told me about those [F]birds and bees.
[F]Come what may, you've been en[Bb]deared to me,
Bec[F]ause we [C]share these childhood [F]memories.
Instrumental bridge. F C F
[F]Time, it moved so fast; those days are [Bb]over now.
We'[C]ve all gone our separate ways, but [F]still somehow,
I [Dm]often need to telephone and [Bb]talk to you,
To[G] see if you [G7]remember things the [C]way I do.
It [F]won't be too much longer 'til we'll be [Bb]old and gray,
[C]And winding up our travels here on [F]life's highway.
F Bb (Slow Down)
But no matter where I roam, I've got you here with me:
While I [F]reminisce[C] these childhood [F]memories.
