A Picture From Lifes Other Side by Woody Guthrie

The verses may be in the wrong order but it's all pretty much the same:

       D                         D       
In the world's mighty gallery of pictures
         G                            D      
There're scenes that are painted from life,
D                      D      
Scenes of youth and of beauty,
A7                     A7      
Scenes of hardship and strife,
D                       D       
Scenes of wealth and of plenty,
    G                          D     
Old age and the blushing young bride,
     G                          D          
They hang on the wall - but the saddest of all
        A7                         D     
Are the pictures from life's other side.

  D                         D
A picture from life's other side
G                       D    
Someone has fell by the way
      D                          D
And a life has gone out with the tide
     A7                        A7
That might have been happy someday
D                   D
Some poor mother at home
   G                      D
Is watching and a-waiting alone
G                          D
Longing to hear - from her loved one so dear
         A7                        D
That's a picture from life's other side.

        D                         D
Now the first scene is one of two brothers
      G                           D
Their paths them both diff'rently led
D                       D
One lived in luxury and riches
        A7                       A7
And the other one begged for his bread
D                         D
One night they met on the highway
      G                        D
"Your money or life, sir", one cried
    G                              D
And then with his knife - took his own brother's life
         A7                        D
That's a picture from life's other side.

    D                       D
The next scene is that of a gambler
        G                     D
Who had lost all his money at play
       D                                     D
An' he draws his dead mother's ring from his finger
         A7                           A7
That she wore long ago on her wedding day
         D                             D
It's his last earthly treasure, but he stakes it
        G                                   D
Then he bows his head that his shame he may hide
               G                      D
But, when they lifted his head - they found he was dead
         A7                        D
That's a picture from life's other side.

  D                         D
A picture from life's other side
G                       D    
Someone has fell by the way
      D                          D
And a life has gone out with the tide
     A7                        A7
That might have been happy someday
D                   D
Some poor mother at home
   G                      D
Is watching and a-waiting alone
G                          D
Longing to hear - from her loved one so dear
         A7                        D
That's a picture from life's other side.

        D                         D
Now the last scene is down by the river
     G                       D
Of a heart-broken mother and babe
       D                           D
In the harbor light glare see them shiver
A7                        A7
Outcasts that no one will save
D                        D
Once she was once a true woman
G                      D
Somebody's darlin' and pride
    G                                 D
God help her, she leaps - for there's no one to weep
         A7                        D
That's a picture from life's other side.

  D                         D
A picture from life's other side
G                       D    
Someone has fell by the way
      D                          D
And a life has gone out with the tide
     A7                        A7
That might have been happy someday
D                   D
Some poor mother at home
   G                      D
Is watching and a-waiting alone
G                          D
Longing to hear - from her loved one so dear
         A7                        D
That's a picture from life's other side.
