Dual Custody
John Prine, Roger Cook

That's my toaster over there.
It was mine before we married

I bought it fair and square
A nd that's my purple Persian oriental
Polyester continental rug on the floor
Pots and pans and ugly dishes
One old dog and 2 gold fishes,
Broken dreams and shattered wishes,
A lucky horseshoe hanging above the door
What was that for?


Sweet memories you and me
Dual custody
Dual custody

 

Your oven roaster
Your rocking chair
The walnut secretary
Your wedding silverware
You only brought out on Thanksgiving
When Gramma was still living
Rest her soul, heart of gold

You only took the things you needed
Hanging plants and old bird feeders,
The jug we used for margaritas
Back when everything was mighty fine - most all the time.

Sweet memories, you and me

These memories, you and me
Dual custody
Dual custody

 

There's our photo you and me,
it was taken in Orlando in 1993
when we were holding hands and laughing,
we were lovin', we were livin'
naturally so happily

Now we only meet on Fridays
When you drop the kids at my place
You want yours and I want my space
and thats the one thing we agreed upon
Life goes on

Sweet memories of you and me
Dual custody

Sweet memories of you and me
