I'm not stamp collector but I've got a hobby too
Bringin' home a souvenir trinkets old and new
Feathers from a rooster fight a whistle from a fair
I always get a souvenir to prove that I was there
Well I've got a piece of silky thread from bashful Mary's gown
A nugget from a stream of gold and a red nose from a clown
A horseshoe from a rodeo a claw from a bear
Well I always get a souvenir to prove that I was there
I always get a souvenir everywhere I go
Well I've got some little something from every girl I know
I pair of fuzzy bobby socks a lock of curly hair
I always get a souvenir to prove that I was there
[ guitar ]
Well I took a burned out piston from a winning racer car
Well I've even got a G string from Gene Sheppard's guitar
I've collected everything soap to silverware
I always get a souvenir to prove that I was there
Well now I'm not bragging when I say with women I have dealt
Well you can tell I've been there by the notches on my belt
Yes I've collected different things from every love affair
I always get a souvenir to prove that I was there
I've got a fine collection but you're my pride and joy
You're the one I like the best you make me a happy boy
To trade you for a million things hon I wouldn't dare
Cause you and me are gonna get me another souvenir
