Mickey Newbury - "How I Love Them Old Songs" lyrics

Dog gone my soul how I love them old songs
Cause they were a comfort to me when I was alone
The dancin' stops but the music goes on
Dog gone my soul how I love them old songs

Ah when I hear that double Eagle guitar
It makes me think how trouble free girl we are
There was a time I spent my nights in a bar
Playin' that old juke box until the honky tonkie locked up

Dog gone my mind it just won't leave me alone
Keeps on remindin' me I'm so far from home
Them heart breakin' achin' eggs and bacon country songs
Well they take me back to hardwood floors outdoor johns and mason jars

It's all I can do to believe thats its gone
That hard knockin' rockin' rollin' life that I've known
Well the dancin's all over the music must go on
Dog gone my soul how I love them old songs
