I worked on putting this video together all day. I made one and wasn't happy with it and started all over about 7 hours ago. I'm either happy with this one or just plain tired of fooling with it LOL. I hope you enjoy it. I used earbuds instead of headphones and it's a little hard to hear the mix good when singing. The picture is close to 100 years old. I'll post the lyrics below. Thanks - Ricky :-)

This Photograph
________________________________________­__

( Verse 1 )
I purchased an old photograph
At an auction in the fall
Then hung by a single nail
On my bedroom wall

A simple frame containing
A window to the past
A woman and her little child
Love behind a pane of glass

( Chorus )
This photograph from long ago
Never fails to make me smile
If I only take the time each day
To gaze at it a while
I ponder things about their lives
And how their picture wound up here
This woman and her little child
Love unfaded by the years

( Verse 2 )
This woman looks so soft and warm
As she holds her dear child close
Her eyes speak a language
That everybody knows

Love pride and happiness
Stir the soul within
This woman and her little child
Leave me feeling like a friend

( Chorus )
This photograph from long ago
Never fails to make me smile
If I only take the time each day
To gaze at it a while
I ponder things about their lives
And how their picture wound up here
This woman and her little child
Love unfaded by the years

( Verse 3 )
Time can be an awful foe
With treasures buried deep
Lives can fade like morning mist
With little left to keep

I only hope that years from now
When I'm dead and gone
This photograph from long ago
Still has a caring home

( Chorus )
This photograph from long ago
Never fails to make me smile
If I only take the time each day
To gaze at it a while
I ponder things about their lives
And how their picture wound up here
This woman and her little child
Love unfaded by the years
