Chords And Lyrics
Demo, Tips & Pdf

  • Drop D Tuning = Yes
  • Capo = 2nd fret
  • Rhythm = challenge here is to arpeggio the strings so it's as if you're finger-picking the melody while playing. A root up down up root up down up pattern will work if that's all you intend to do. But as you'll see, I'm throwing in upstrokes in certain places to try and duplicate some finger-picking.
  • Picking = No
  • Chords = D, A7, G

Souvenirs Lyrics

All the snow has turned to water --- Christmas days have come and gone
Broken toys and faded colours --- are all that's left to linger on

I hate graveyards and old Pawn shops --- for they always bring me tears
I can't forgive the way they robbed me --- of my childhood souvenirs

Memories, they can't be boughten --- they can't be won at carnivals for free
Well it took me years - to get those souvenirs
And I don't know how they slipped away from me

Broken hearts and dirty windows --- make life difficult to see
That's why last night and this morning -- always look the same to me

And I hate reading old love letters -- for they always bring me tears
I can't forget the way they robbed me --- of my sweetheart's souvenirs

Memories, they can't be boughten --- they can't be won at carnivals for free
Well it took me years - to get those souvenirs
And I don't know how they slipped away from me
