I've been down this road before I remember every tree Every single blade of grass Holds a special place for me And I remember every town And every hotel room Every song I ever sang On a guitar out of tune
I remember everything Things I can't forget The way you turned and smiled on me On the night that we first met And I remember every night Your ocean eyes of blue How I miss you in the morning light Like roses miss the dew
I've been down this road before Alone as I can be Careful not to let my past Go sneaking up on me Got no future in my happiness Though regrets are very few Sometimes a little tenderness Was the best that I could do
I remember everything Things I can't forget Swimming pools of butterflies That slipped right through the net And I remember every night Your ocean eyes of blue How I miss you in the morning light Like roses miss the dew
How I miss you in the morning light Like roses miss the dew

Maria Nunes from Roseburg OregonI encountered John Prine at a friends house in 1973. I learned all the words and would go to work and try to sing the songs so we could sing along together. I am not a singer, but I had the idea if we could sing Sam Stone in barbershop it would become my workmates favorite tune.m we never sang it but they learned the words to some of those songs and would recite them at glorisly inappropriate times. Even years afterwords one workmate would walk up to me and begin. Those songs made me so happy. I collected John Prine albums but that was difficult in the places I lived. Not a lot of places to go search plus always a broke single mother. My 58 year old son loves John Prine and plays him regularly. I just sent him the name of a song I play often, In Spite of Ourselves. My husband wants to see Trump charged with John’s murder because of how he put the Covid 19 pandemic onto the American people especially on John Prine.
Eric from OregonThe first time I heard this song, my impression was that it was a love song from John to, well, everybody. Fiona, his fans, Americans, etc.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
