D 
In the world's mighty gall'ry of pictures 
     G                            D 
Hang scenes that are painted from life 
 
There's pictures of joy and of sorrow 
        E                         A 
There's pictures of peace and of strife 
 
 
         D  
There's pictures of youth and beauty 
G                               D 
Old age and the blushing young bride 
     G                        D 
All hang on the wall, but the saddest of all 
     A                         D 
Is a picture from life's other side.  
 

D 
Just a picture from life's other side 
    G                    D 
Someone who fell by the way 
 
A life has gone out with the tide 
     E                       A 
That may have been happy one day 
 
 
      D  
Some poor old mother at home 
    G                    D 
Is watching and waiting alone 
      G                        D 
Just longing to hear from her loved ones so dear 
        A                         D 
It's a picture from life's other side.  
 
 
The first scene is that of a gambler 
Who lost all his money at play 
Draws his dead mother's ring from his finger 
That she wore on her wedding day 
His last earthly treasure, he stakes it 
 
 
Bows his head that his shame he might hide 
When they lifted his head, they found he was dead 
It's a picture from life's other side..  
 
 
The next scene is that of two brothers 
Whose paths in life different ways led 
The one was a-livin' in luxury 
While t'other one begged for his bread 
One dark night they met on a high3way 
"Your money or life" the thief cried 
Then he took with his knife his dear brother's life 
It's a picture from life's other side.  
 
 
The next scene is down by the river 
A heart-broken mother and child 
The old harbor lights stand and shiver 
On an outcast that no one will save 
Perhaps she was once a good woman 
Somebody's darlin' and pride 
God help her, she leaps, there is no one to weep 
It's a picture from life's other side.
