Additional Verses (Guthrie version)

Now the first scene is that of two brothers
Their paths in life differently led
One lived in luxury and riches
And the other one begged for his bread
One night they met on the highway
Your money; your life; one cried
Then with his knife, he took his own brother’s life
That’s a picture from life’s other side

Now the next scene is down by the river
A heartbroken mother and babe
In the harbor light there see them shiver
Outcasts that no one will save
Once she was a true woman
Somebody’s darling and pride
God help her she leaps
There’s no one to weap
That’s a picture from life’s other side
