Bits And Pieces Of Life
Recorded by Cal Smith
Written by Charlie Williams

F
No one knows the old man’s name
C
But every evening as the sun goes down
F C
He pulls a creaking wagon to the city dump a mile or so from town
F
And he searches through the papers and the bottles
C
And wonders what he’ll find today


He’s collecting bits and pieces
G7 C
Of the lives other people threw away

There’s a picture in a broken frame
F G7 C
That shows a father standing with his son

Their smiling faces testify
F G7 C
That neither sees the troubled times to come

F
The father couldn’t understand the teenage boy
C
With values of his own

And neither one would compromise
G7 C
And now just like the old man they’re alone


He brushes off a crumpled dress
F G7 C
That a pretty girl once wore to her first dance
F
She and the boy were planning to be married
G7 C
But they never got the chance

F
They buried him in Viet Nam
C
And she just grieved herself to death they say

He’s collecting bits and pieces
G7 C
Of the lives that other people threw away


He kicks aside the cans
F G7 C
And finds record two young lovers called their song
F
And a crucifix a mother gave her daughter
G7 C
Back before the world went wrong
F
The old man slowly turns to go
C
The walk today was hardly worth his time

It’s just a bunch of junk he says
G7 C
For there ain’t nothing here that’s worth a dime
