About the Song
"Flowers on the Wall" is a song made famous by country music group The Statler Brothers. Written by the group's original tenor, Lew DeWitt, the song peaked in popularity in January 1966, spending four weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart, and reaching No. 4 on the Hot 100 chart. In the years since its release, "Flowers on the Wall" became one of the trademark songs of the Statler Brothers' 40-year career. The song is a wryly humorous account of a man's isolated life. Recounting his sad, daily pursuits, "Counting flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all, playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one, smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo", are all acts of boredom and lost purpose as well as isolation. The Chorus of the song ends with the words: "So don't tell me, I have nothing to do". Lewis Calvin "Lew" DeWitt (March 12, 1938 - August 15,.    Download this sheet!
