Souvenirs  John Prine

(CAPO 5th Fret)
[D]    [G]    [A7]     [D]                        
All the snow has turned to [G]water, [A7]
Christmas days have come and [D]gone.
Broken toys and [G]faded colours [A7]are all that's left to linger [D]on.
I hate graveyards and old [G]pawn shops, [A7]
For they always bring me [D]tears.
I can't forgive the way they [G]robbed me of my [A7]childhood souve[D]nirs.

[A7]Memories, they can't be [D]boughten.
[A7]They can't be won at carnivals for [D]free.
[A7]Well it took me years to [D]get those souvenirs,
And i [G]don't know how they slipped away from [A7]me.

Broken hearts and dirty [G]windows  [A7]
Make life difficult to [D]see.
That's why last night and this [G]morning  [A7]
Always look the same to [D]me.
And I hate reading old love [G]letters  [A7]
For they always bring me [D]tears.
I can't forget the way they [G]robbed me, [A7]
Of my sweetheart's souve[D]nirs.
