Days of summer long ago


When the days of summer seemed so long 
And the dirt road was my path 
I'd find pop bottles by the side of the road 
Thrown from cars as they roared past 

 
I'd collect the bottles of many shapes and sizes 
Then to the grocery store I'd go 
The cashier would always smile at me 
When I brought in the load 

 
Three cents apiece I got back then 
And candy I might buy 
Or maybe a pack of baseball cards 
With bubble gum inside 

 
It seems now not so long ago 
Those childhood days gone past 
When the days of summer seemed so long 
And a dirt road was my path
