A few Old Memories

When I (D)thought I had closed it, so tightly
(A)before. I can't understand(D) it, why it should
bother my (G) mind, for they all (D)belong to
(A)another place and(D)time.
Chorus: (D) Just a few old keepsakes, way back on
the(G) shelf. Well they (D)don't mean nothing, I,m

first thing tomorrow (D)morning, I'll(A) clean
off this (D)shelf.
