The Man Who Picked The Wildwood Flower
Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Tommy Collins

C G7 C
I only saw five people when they buried Jack Dupree
G7 C
Two diggers and the preacher the funeral man and me
F C
The prayer was said and the hole was filled in less than half an hour
G7 C
And I said goodbye to the little man who picked the Wildwood Flower

G7 C
For twenty years I'd seen him on the lower Nashville streets
G7 C
They said he always earned enough to buy his clothes and eats
F C
He'd stop awhile and check his watch with the big clock on the tower
G7 C
That's when I asked him once if he could pick the Wildwood Flower

G7 C
He always drew a crowd because he put on such a show
G7 C
He'd dance and sing and play and smile just like a polished pro
F C
And every time he saw me standing in the crowd
G7 C
I knew the tune that he'd play next would be the Wildwood Flower

G7 C
I told him once that he could be what people call a star
G7 C
And he said why boy I'm happy how many of them folks are
F C
I'd hate to have to force a smile and feel myself turn sour
G7 C
There ain't no put on in my face when I pick the Wildwood Flower

G7 C
Then I saw a thousand people as they begin to come
G7 C
Business men and Opry stars party girls and bums
F C
And on that little mound of clay bouquets begin to shower
G7 C
As they paid respect to the little man who picked the Wildwood Flower
