Old Photographs

Album: Two Sides to Every Woman (1979)
  • (Carlene Carter)

    Old photgraphs always make me laugh
    Ponytails and golden locks
    Dirty old boys from down the block
    Always knew someday we'd have to go
    Our separate ways
    And you'll find someone to be
    And I'd just go on being me

    Always searching, always finding
    We love too easily
    We end up some man's family
    Always believing the unbelievable
    Forever leaving for another man's love

    Old photographs always make me laugh
    Racin' on our bicycles, sun meltin' popsicles
    Jumpin' on trampolines,children have the neatest things
    And July Fourth was never hot
    The sun was just a great clock

    Repeat Chorus

    Old photographs always make me laugh
    What happened to the dreams
    What we thought were the simple things
    It's been a long time now
    And still it's funny how
    Old photographs sometimes make me cry
    Old photographs sometimes make me cry
