Lyrics of Iris DeMent - Childhood Memories

Childhood Memories

Fireflies inside of a mason jar
acting big behind the wheel of daddy's car
Playing church around the old piano stand,
you were quite a preacher and we sang so grand
I remember every night what we would say and do
\"If you've forgiven me, then I've forgiven you\".
And now when life begins to get the best of me
I reminisce these childhood memories

We built a raft and traveled all around the world
and stopped for penny candy at the corner store
You let me fly your kite but when I dropped the string
I thought my life was over, but Mama rescued me
When I was just a kid you taught my prayers to me
then you turned around and you told me about those birds and bees
Come what may, you've been endeared to me
because we share these childhood memories



Time, it moved so fast, those days are over now
We've all gone our separate ways, but still somehow
I often need to telephone and talk to you
to see if you remember things the way I do
It won't be too much longer 'til we'll be old and gray
winding up our travels here on life's highway,
but no matter where I roam I've got you here with me
when I reminisce these childhood memories
