You and I….tell me ‘bout the good ole days


Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like this worlds gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy
Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress, but I just don't know
And grandpa, let's wander back into the past
And paint me the picture of long ago
Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

This is a special layout of my grandfather and I when I was a little girl. As a child raised by her grandparents they were VERY important to me and preserving memories of them is something I cherish. My grandfather and I were buddies. Out of the three girls I was his tomboy and love to fish with him and get my hands dirty…seems like some things never change (I always have ink on my hands).

This layout is a dear! Has the touch of vintage design but really looks soooo adorable! The floral accents is definitely pretty!
