Just got "The Bristol Sessions" in the mail, a Bear Family production and it's got me knocked out cold. One song in particular is one by a man named Alferd G. Karnes and this song "Days of My Childhood Plays" that's got me. I've gotten better, can hear and make out what some of the chords are but I'd love some help/discussion about this great song.

THE DAYS OF MY CHILDHOOD PLAYS
As recorded by Alfred Karnes
C position, standard tuning

Could I only find the way back to yesterday
To the golden days of my childhood play
My life would be different, my enemies would be friends
My leisures not wasted, my life so full of sins

REFRAIN: If I could only find the way back, to the days of my childhood play

REFRAIN

Could I only find the days as they were then
The golden days to live all over again
My paths would not be empty, I'd make a mark in life
My mother so happy, her hair not near so white

REFRAIN

Could I only find the days as they once seemed
And childhood joys not steeled away like dreams
The schoolhouse on the hilltop and the meadows all in bloom
The bird's song in the willow, not a world so full of gloom

REFRAIN

REFRAIN

Could I only find the way back to the yesterdays

G                                        C
To the golden days of my childhood plays

F                                              C
My life would be different, my enemies would be friends

D7                                           G
My leisures not wasted, my life so full of sin


                A7                              D7                     G                                         C
REFRAIN: If I could only find the way back, to the days of my childhood plays

[C] Could I only find the [A7] way back to the yesterdays
[D] To the golden days of my [E] childhood plays
[F] My life would be different, my [C] enemies would be [A7] friends,
My [D] leisures not wasted, my [G] life so full of sin

The E change is what makes the tune so memorable.
