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
