      About "I Was Left On the Street"

      Lyrics for Bill Monroe - "I Was Left On the Street"

      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]
