"A Beautiful life"
written by Bill Monroe
as played by Bill Monroe

Each day I'll do (each day I'll do)
(D) (A)
A golden deed ( a golden deed )
By helping those ( by helping those )

who are in need (who are in need)

My life on earth (my life on earth)
is but a span (is but a span)
and so I'll do (and so I'll do the best I can)

Lifes evening sun (lifes evening sun)
is sinking low (is sinking low)
a few more days (a few more days)
and I must go (and I must go)

Too meet the deed (to meet the deed)
That I have done (that I have done)
where there will be (where there will be no setting sun)

While travelling down (while travelling down)
Lifes weary road (lifes weary road)
I'll try to lessen (I'll try to lessen)
some travellers road (some travellers road)
I'll try to turn (I'll try to turn)
The nights to day (the night to day)
make flowers bloom ( make floweres bloom, along the way)

(to chorus)
