It's been a while since we've had one of these, and what better way to resume the series than with Iris DeMent? I bring you here, on this third-term Saturday morning, Iris singing 'Childhood Memories':
Fireflies inside of a mason jar.Listen on, and you'll see that as well as Daddy's car, there's also the line 'I thought my life was over, but Mama rescued me'. Childhood can be tough.
Acting big behind the wheel of Daddy's car.
Playing church around the old piano stand,
You were quite a preacher and oh, we sang so grand.
I remember every night what we would say and do:
"If you've forgiven me, then I've forgiven you."
And now when life begins to get the best of me,
I reminisce these childhood memories.
