Charley's Picture Recorded by Porter Wagoner Written by Larry Kingston and Frank Dycus
G C G A wino we called Charley had a picture D7 That he wore around his neck upon a chain G C G But you couldn't see the face in Charley's picture D7 G Just long brown hair and a poem in the frame
C G We tried and tried to see old Charley's picture D7 But we couldn't even tempt him with the wine G C G His shaking hands would tightly grip the picture D7 G And he'd recite the poem one more time
C G You grace this frame the picture of perfection D7 While I'm the perfect picture of disgrace G C G And upon your name I'll swear until I'm worthy D7 G I forbid my eyes to look upon your face
C G Old Charley froze to death one Sunday morning D7 We found him and I guess you know the rest G C G Someone removed the poem from his picture D7 G And the chilling truth lay framed upon his chest
C G As I knelt beside his body D7 The picture lay there before my anxious eyes G C G And with trembling lips I whispered the words of Charley's poem
Sung: D7 G As I stared into the face of Jesus Christ
