A PICTURE FROM LIFE'S OTHER SIDE Hank Williams, Sr. In the world's mighty gallery of pictures Hang the scenes that are painted from life There's pictures of love and of passion Then there's pictures of peace and of strife There hang pictures of youth and of beauty Of old age and the blushing young bride They all hang on the wall - but the saddest of all Are the pictures from life's other side. Just a picture from life's other side Someone has fell by the way A life has gone out with the tide That might have been happy someday There's a poor old mother at home She's watching and waiting alone Just longing to hear - from a loved one so dear It's just a picture from life's other side. The first scene is that of a gambler Who had lost all his money at play An' he draws his dead mother's ring from his finger That she wore long ago on her wedding day It's his last earthly treasure, but he stakes it Then he bows his head that his shame he may hide But, when they lifted his head - they found he was dead That's just a picture from life's other side. Now the last scene is that by the river Of a heart-broken mother and babe As the harbor lights shine and they shiver On an outcast whom no one will save And yet, she was once a true woman She was somebody's darlin' and pride God help her, she leaps - for there's no one to weep It's just a picture from life's other side. EXTRA VERSE: The next was a scene of two brothers Whose pathways so diff'rent had led One lived the life of a rich man The other one begged for his bread Then one night they met on the highway "Your money or life", the thief cried And then with his knife - took his own brother's life It's just a picture from life's other side.
