♫ Photographs And Memories ♫ (Redux)

This is one of my favourites by the late, great Jim Croce.  I planned to go in search of a new song, something I hadn’t played before, but I’m too exhausted tonight, so … Jim Croce volunteered to step in and give our ears a treat!

Photographs and Memories is the title song from Jim Croce’s album of the same name that was released in 1974, a year after his death.  Croce was just starting to become successful when he died at the age of 30. Jim, the pilot, and other members of his group, were killed when the plane crashed into a pecan tree at the end of the runway in Natchitoches, Louisiana in 1973.  Yet another gone too soon.

Photographs And Memories
Jim Croce

Photographs and memories
Christmas cards you sent to me
All that I have are these
To remember you

Memories that come at night
Take me to another time
Back to a happier day
When I called you mine

But we sure had a good time
When we started way back when
Morning walks and bedroom talks
Oh how I loved you then

Summer skies and lullabies
Nights we couldn’t say good-bye
And of all of the things that we knew
Not a dream survived

Photographs and memories
All the love you gave to me
Somehow it just can’t be true
That’s all I’ve left of you

But we sure had a good time
When we started way back when
Morning walks and bedroom talks
Oh how I loved you then

      • Hello Jill. While not every musical post is for me, I find it stunning how many of the songs you post are ones I really like. As I told you a large part of my iTunes library is songs you have posted over the years. I think that it is amazing when you understand that we grew up in different times. Anyway, thanks as always. OT: You seem to be feeling better lately? I am glad to see your improvement and more frequent posting. Keep up the good fight, we need your voice. Warm Hugs

        • You can’t possibly know how good it makes me feel that you’ve enjoyed the music posts that much!

          I’m hanging in, healthwise. Not making any further progress, but not regressing, either. I’m very limited in what I can do physically, so I spend my time … writing blog posts, keeping up with the news, etc. Huge hugs to you, my dear friend
