    "How I Love Them Old Songs" Lyrics

    Jim Ed Brown and the Browns

    (Mickey Newbury)

    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/

    Oh, 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
    Playing that old jukebox until the honky tonky locked up.

    Doggone my mind just won't leave me alone
    Keeps on reminding me I'm so far from home
    Those heart breaking, aching eggs and bacon, country songs
    They take me back to hardwood floors,
    Out door johns and Mason jars.

    It's all I can do to believe that it's gone
    That hard knocking rock and rolling life that I've known
    But the dancing is over and the music must go on
    Doggone my soul, how I love them old songs
    How I love them old songs.
