Gary Fjellgaard Song Lyrics > Contenders Two: Still in the Running

Them Old Songs

Doggone my soul / How I love them old songs
They were a comfort to me / When I was alone
The dancing stops but the / Music goes on
Doggone my soul / How I love them old songs

Ah when I hear that / Double eagle guitar
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 tonk got locked up

Doggone my mind / It just wonít leave me alone
Keeps on reminding me / Iím so far from home
Those heartbeakin / achin / Eggs and bacon country songs
Well they take me back to / Hardwood floors / Outdoor johns and mason jars

Itís all I can do / To believe that itís gone
That hard knockin / Rock and rollin / Life that Iíve known

The dancing stops but the music must go on
Doggone my soul / How I love then old songs
