The House by the Side of The Road by Sam Walter Foss, Dreams in Homespun

1 Let me live in a house by the side of the road

Where the race of men go bye-

The men who are good and the men who are bad,

as good and as bad as I.

5 I would not sit in the scorner’s seat

nor hurled the cynics ban-

Let me live in the house by the side of the road

And be a friend to man.

I see from my house by the side of the road,

10 By the side of the highway of life,

The men who press the ardor of hope

The men who are faint with the strife,

But I turn not away from their smiles nor their tears,

Both parts of an infinite plan-

Let me live but in the house by the side of the road

And be a friend to man.
