Bits and Pieces
Lyrics by William Lake, Music by William Crouch and William Lake
Key: D

VERSE1:
Barely a Woman when she did wed
With a two dollar bed and a shotgun shed
Some house hold goods and Her Grandmas pans
Six were born only two would live
Six were born only two would live

Chorus 1:
Dirt poor croppers living on the land
No silver spoon or government hand
Just Faith in God and a piece of land
Their just bits and pieces of who I am…Bits and pieces of who I am

Verse 2:
When the world hit bottom in 29
They did what they could to just get by
Trapped wild game and ran some shine
On the red clay roads of poverty
On the red clay roads of poverty

Chorus 2:
Dirt poor croppers living on the land
No silver spoon or government hand
Just Faith in God and the strength of their hands
Their just bits and pieces of who I am…..Bits and pieces of who I am

Verse 3:
The Lord took Henry at 65
Thelma lived on til 99
Read the good book at the start of the day
And thanked the Good Lord every day
Lived on a Farm til her final day

Chorus 3:
Dirt Poor Croppers living hand to mouth
No silver spoon nor government help
Just faith in God and a piece of land
Their just bits and pieces of who I am….Bits and pieces of who I am

Verse 4:
Time will pass, We leave this Earth
Dust to Dust Like the Good Lord said
On the Red Clay roads of The Georgia woods
The past lives on through all of US
The past lives on through all of US
Their just bits and pieces of who I am….Bits and pieces of who I am
End:
