Subject: Lyr Add: WHEN I LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND (I. Berlin)
Thanks for taking the time to post the lyrics... I now have a few moments to add the second verse.

(Incidentally, the music I am sending Mick L is from the original scanned sheet music at the website. The images given there are too large to print directly from the site so I printed it using a photo finisher package to "fit page")


VERSE 2. To ev'ry wrinkled face
I'll leave a fire place
To paint their fav'rite scene
Within the golden rays,
Scenes of their childhood days,
When they were sweet sixteen.
I'll leave them each a song
To sing the whole day long,
As toward the end they plod.
To ev'ry broken heart
With sorrow torn apart,
I'll leave the love of God.

I'll leave the sunshine....
