Always Lift Him Up And Never Knock Him Down-Blind Alfred Reed
Alfred Reed, vocal and fiddle, Arville Reed, guitar in D position, standard tuning

When a fellow has the blues and feels discouraged
And has nothing else but trouble all his life
When he's always grumbled at and never happy
Living with a scolding, aggravating wife
When he's sick and tired of life and takes to drinking
Don't pass him by, don't greet him with a frown
Do not fail to lend a hand and try to help him
Always lift him up and never knock him down

When he stays out late at night because he's worried
And because his home is not what it should be
Have a smile for him wherever you may meet him
It will help him find the right way, don't you see?
If he gambles when he's in the town and city
Tell him what he ought to do to gain the crown
Lend a hand and do not fail to show him pity
Always lift him up and never knock him down

If he can not pay his debts and feels disgusted
If he's blue and hardly has a word to say
Let him know you are his friend and can be trusted
It will cheer this lonely fellow on his way
If he finds it hard for him to feed his family
Let a kind word greet his ear when he's around
Don't say anything at all to make against him
Always lift him up and never knock him down

If he has no friends and everything's against him
If he's failed in everything that he has tried
Try to lift his load and help him bear his burden
Let him know that you are walking by his side
If he feels that all is lost and he is falling
Try to place this poor man's feet on solid ground
Just remember he's some mother's precious darling
Always lift him and and never knock him down
