Far From Me Chords And Strumming, John Prine

Share the Far From Me Chords and Strumming:

Did You Know? Far From Me is from John Prine's first album and is his favorite song that he has written.

The lyric a broken bottle looks just like a diamond ring  is in reference to his childhood. 'We were raised close to a junkyard and one of my favorite pastimes was playing in the junkyard breaking bottles. The kids always commented that the fragments of glass looked just like a field of diamonds. The majority of my songs are written from life experiences and a lot of times there is not any symbolism but just words that take me to another place and time.'
