"A Picture From Life's Other Side" as written by and Sr. Dowd/williams....
In the world's mighty gallery of pictures
Hang scenes that are painting from life
There;s pictures of love and of passion
There's pictures of peace and of strife
There hang pictures of youth and of beauty
Of old age and the blushing young bride
They all hang on the wall but the saddest of all
Are the pictures from Life's other side

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 someday
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 of his money at play
And he draws his dead mother's ring from his finger
That she wore on her wedding day
It's his last earthly treasure but he stakes it,
Then he bows his head in shame
But when they lifted his head
They found he was dead
That'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, but there's no one to weep
It's just a picture from life's other side
