Picture From Life's Other Side Lyrics - Hank Williams

Review The Song (2)



In the world's mighty gallery of pictures hang the scenes that're painted from life
There hang pictures of love and of passion and there's pictures of sorrow and strife
There hung pictures of youth and of beauty of old age and a blushing young bride
They all hung on the wall but the saddest of all are the pictures from life's other side
Just a picture from life's other side someone has fell by the way
A life has gone out with the tide that might have been happy some day
There's a poor old mother at home she's watching and waiting alone
Just longing to hear from a loved one so dear just a picture from life's other side
The first scene is that of a gambler who had lost all his money at play
he draws his dead mother's ring from his finger
The one that she wore long ago on her wedding day
It's his last earthly treasure but he stakes it
Then he bows his head that his shame he might hide
But when they lifted his head they found he was dead
It's just a picture from life's other side
Now the last scene is that by the river of a heartbroken mother and babe

As the harbor lights shine and they shiver on an outcast whom no one will save
And yet she was once a true woman she was somebody's darling and pride
God help her she leaps for there's no one to weep
It's just a picture from life's other side

What a powerful song. Its very sad but very true. Fine recitation and singing by Hank Williams. I plan to perferm the song at some of my concerts. Also the blue sky boys also sang the song. There version was a lot faster than Hanks.

The man had a haunting but simple voice with a powerful message in every line the darker side of life ??? I have all his lp,s and now the complete cd collection

And yet she was once a true woman she was somebody's darling and pride
God help her she leaps for there's no one to weep
It's just a picture from life's other side
