House by the Side of the Road There are hermit souls that live with- drawn In the place of their self-content; There are souls like stars, that dwell apart, In a fellowless firmament; There are pioneer souls that blaze the paths Where highways never ran- But let me live by the side of the road And be a friend to man. Let me live in a house by the side of the road Where the race of men go by- The men who are good and the men who are bad, As good and as bad as I. I would not sit in the scorner's seat Nor hurl the cynic's ban- Let me live in a house by the side of the road And be a friend to man. I see from my house by the side of the road By the side of the highway of life, The men who press with ardor of hope, The men who are faint with the strife, But I turn not away from their smiles and tears, Both parts of an infinite plan- Let me live in a house by the side of the road And be a friend to man. I know there are brook-gladdened meadows ahead, And mountains of wearisome height; That the road passes on through the long afternoon And stretches away to the night. And still I rejoice when the travelers rejoice And weep with the strangers that moan, Nor live in my house by the side of the road Like a man who dwells alone. Let me live in my house by the side of the road, Where the race of men go by- They are good, they are bad, they are weak, they are strong, Wise, foolish - so am I. Then why should I sit in the scorner's seat, Or hurl the cynic's ban? Let me live in my house by the side of the road And be a friend to man. The family of Billy Ray Ivy would like to express their sincere thanks for the food, flowers, visits, prayers, and calls made to them during the loss of their loved one. Uncle Bill made wonderful friends wherever he lived. His old friends in Tullos and Urania and his new friends in Jena, he cherished each and every one. A special thanks to Rev. Curtis Carroll and Kay North for the beautiful eu- logies. His wave, his smile and that wonderful laugh will be missed and cherished by all who knew an'd loved him. Thank you.
