      About "Fate of Man"

      Lyrics for Glen Campbell - "Fate of Man"

      Pity a man for he don't know
      The trouble he'll pass goin' down life's road

      When a man is one and twenty he thinks he knows it all
      He can't see down the road of life where he'll ever fall
      But fall he will as he travels through life
      With all its pitfalls troubles and strife

      Now at 50 he's goin' real strong
      He has him a family and a nice little home
      But old age is creeping up his spine
      And the day is comin' when the sun won't shine

      Now at 60 he won't have to guess
      He's already missed the boat that leads to success
      But he's done his best and he can't see why
      The fame of life just passed him by

      Now at 70 he can see the light
      And he knows he's never been very bright
      But he's done his best as he's travelled by
      And now all he can do is just sit and sigh

      Pity a man for he don't know
      The trouble he'll pass goin' down life's road

      Now at 80 he's ready for the wreath
      He's wore out his hair and two sets of teeth
      He has rheumatism in his hands and feet
      And nothin' seems good to eat

      So you can pity him as he goes up the line
      As he wobbles on the spindle and his almost blind
      And you can tell by the way that he travels alone
      That it won't be long before he's goin' home

      But if he's kept the commandments as he's travelled through life
      He'll have a home in heaven where there'll be no strife
      He's worked all his life to get things the way he wants 'em
      He comes here against his will and he goes away disappointed
