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
