A Picture From Life’s Other Side
Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr. [3/4 time]

C
In the world's mighty gallery of pictures
F C
Hang the scenes that are painted from life

There's pictures of love and of passion
D7 G7
Then there's pictures of peace and of strife

C
There hang pictures of youth and of beauty
F C
Of old age and the blushing young bride
F C
They all hang on the wall but the saddest of all
G7 C
Are the pictures from life's other side


Just a picture from life's other side
F C
Someone has fell by the way

A life has gone out with the tide
D7 G7
That might have been happy some day

C
There's a poor old mother at home
F C
She's watching and waiting alone
F C
Just longing to hear from a loved one so dear
G7 C
It's just a picture from life's other side


The first scene is that of a gambler
F C
Who had lost all his money at play

And he draws his dead mother's ring from his finger
D7 G7
That she wore long ago on her wedding day

C
It's his last earthly treasure but he stakes it
F C
Then he bows his head that his shame he may hide
F C
But when they lifted his head they found he was dead
G7 C
That's just a picture from life's other side


Now the last scene is that by the river
F C
Of a heartbroken mother and babe

As the harbor lights shine and they shiver
D7 G7
On an outcast whom no one will save

C
And yet she was once a true woman
F C
She was somebody's darling and pride
F C
God help her she leaps for there's no one to weep
G7 C
It's just a picture from life's other side
