rate me

As I stand here at the grave of a lonely man

Thinking how he lived his life while on this land

Recalled all the friends he lost for love of gold

Now there's only just a few to see him go

Some folks drift along through life and never thrill

To the feeling that a good deed brings until

It's too late and they are ready to lie down

There beneath the leaves that scattered on the ground

Fallen leaves that lie scattered on the ground

The birds and flowers that were here now can't be found

All his friends that he once knew are not around

They are scattered like the leaves upon the ground

[ steel ]

Lord let my eyes see every need of every man

Make me stop and always lend a helping hand

Then when I'm laid beneath that little grassy mound

There'll be more friends around than leaves upon the ground

To your grave there's no use taking any gold

You cannot use it when it's time for hands to fold

When you leave this earth for a better home someday

The only thing you'll take is what you gave away

Fallen leaves that lie scattered...
