I Was Left on the Street
Bessie Lee Mauldin, Horace "Benny" Williams, Franklin G. Buchanan, Tony Ellis, Bill Monroe, Haro Stanley
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 [Chorus:] 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 [Chorus]
