Pieces Of My Life' Missing Verse?

Mon Aug 08, 2005 7:03 am

I was attempting to look up the lyrics for this song when I discoverd that I could not find the second verse anywhere?

Playing the Bars, playing like a star....

This verse is not included in Troy's original lyrics either. Was this added by Elvis and the boys maybe?

First place that I searched came up with this.

(words & music by Troy Seals)

A water glass full of whiskey
And women that I never knew too well
Lord, the things I've seen and done
Most of which I'd be ashamed to tell

I don't know how it started
But that's what makes a man a man, I guess
Now I'm holdin' on to nothing'
Tryin' to forget the rest

I'm lookin' back on my life
To see if I can find the pieces
I know that some were stolen
And some just blew away
Well, I've found the bad parts
Found all the sad parts
But I guess I threw the best parts away
Lord away, away

Playing the bars, playing like a star
Anything to get a name
Carryin' on, living on songs
My friends wrote to me to sing


I'm lookin' back on my life
To see if I can find the pieces
I know that some were stolen
And some just blew away
Well, I've found the bad parts
Found all the sad parts
But I guess I threw the best parts away
Away, away

Lord, the pieces of my life
They're everywhere, they're everywhere
And the one I miss most of all
Is you and you know who

Lookin' back on my life, Lord
To see if I can find the pieces
Lookin' back on my life, today
To see if I can find the pieces
Lookin' back on my life
God help me find the pieces

That´s it Sam!
I have the lyrics of this song including the second part...but I don´t know if it was added or it was already featured in the original lyrics..

Best Regards
Renan.

This one doesn't have the missing verse...

I'm going to look into that. Charlie Rich recorded it in 1974, perhaps he changed it...
I'll be back
