What's the Life of a Man As I was a walking one morning at ease A viewing the leaves as they fell from the trees All in slow motion appearing to be And those that had withered, they fell from the trees What's the life of a man anymore than the leaves A man has his season, so why should we grieve Though all thru this life, we appear fine and gay Like the leaves we will wither and soon fade away If you'd seen the leaves just a few days ago So beautiful and bright they all seemed to grow A frost came upon them and withered them all A storm came upon them and down they did fall If you look in the churchyard, there you will see Those that have passed like the leaves from the trees When age and affliction upon us do fall Like the leaves we must wither and down we must fall _____ sung for Bob Beers at Fox Hollow SOF
