Childhood Memories

	  		E                      A 
Fireflies inside of a mason jar 
B                           E 
Acting big behind the wheel of Daddy's car. 
Dm                             F#m 
Playing church around the old piano stand. 
You were quite a preacher and we sang so grand. 
E                                    A 
I remember every night what we would say and do: 
     B                               E 
"If you've forgiven me then I've forgiven you." 
And now when life begins to get the best of me, 
   E    B                    E 
I reminisce these childhood memories. 
We built a raft and traveled all around the world, 
And stopped for candy at the corner store. 
You let me fly your kite and then 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. 
But come what may, you've been endeared to me 
Because we share these childhood memories. 
Time, it moves 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 till we'll be old and gray 
And winding up our travels here on life's highway. 
But no matter where I roam I'll have you here with me 
When I reminisce these childhood memories
