Childhood Days

 Gone gone childhood days
 Gone in so many ways
 All that I have said and done
 The castles we have overcome
 At last you have found a friend
 The sweetest voice will never end
 And it echoes down the mountainside
 People live and people die
 Friendly face will always be
 Wrapped up in my childhood days
 Old dogs and worn out shoes
 Even children sing the blues
 How we must endure it all
 To save God's creatures great and small
 All my world is there and then
 The voices come to me again
 And they echo down the mountainside
 People live and people die
 I still can see my Daddy's face,
 Oh Lord
 This is a lonely place
 Fast train, train too slow
 Maybe you got no place to go
 Let me set your spirit free
 It's crazy but you comfort me
 We share together what we found
 The force of love is all around
 And it echoes down the mountainside
 Little bit of soul we hide
 Find us lost without a trace
 Oh Lord
 This is a lonely place
 Gone gone childhood days
 Gone in so many ways
 In all my children you can see
 What old aquaintance means to me
 Dream is mine and here it stays
 All wrapped up in my childhood days
 And it echoes down the mountainside
 People live and people die
 Tho I love you for always
 I lost you in my childhood days
