Lyrics for Song: I Was Left On The Street
Lyrics for Album: Bluegrass 1959-1969 [1999]



A policeman's whistle gayly, a smile upon his face

As he walked along the old familiar beat

He saw a little bay crying and thought his heart would break

Standing bare foot in the middle of the street



I was left on the street with no shoes upon my feet

When I saw my mom and daddy drive away

Now I'm not old enough to know every much myself

But I saw my dad and mommy drive away



The policeman stopped the traffic, then went up to the boy

And he asked him gently, where do you belong

The little boy stopped crying and with trembling lips he said

I'm not big enough to know just what went wrong



I was left on the street with no shoes upon my feet

When I saw my mom and daddy drive away

Now I'm not old enough to know every much myself

But I saw my dad and mommy drive away



The little boy is happy now with a new mom and dad

His new daddy is the policeman on the beat

Tho' he can't forget that awful day it doesn't seem to hurt so bad

He has a brand new pair of shoes upon his feet



I was left on the street with no shoes upon my feet

When I saw my mom and daddy drive away

Now I'm not old enough to know every much myself

But I saw my dad and mommy drive away
