WRECK ON THE HIGHWAY

Who did you say it was, brother?
Who was it fell by the way?
When whiskey and blood run together,
Did you hear anyone pray?

(I didnít hear nobody pray, dear brother,)
(I didnít hear nobody pray.)
(I heard the crash on the highway,)
(But, I didnít hear nobody pray.)

Instrumental

When I heard the crash on the highway,
I knew what it was from the start.
I went to the scene of destruction,
And a picture was stamped on my heart.

There was whiskey and blood all together,
Mixed with glass where they lay.
Death played her hand in destruction,
But I didnít hear nobody pray.

(I didnít hear nobody pray, dear brother,)
(I didnít hear nobody pray.)
(I heard the crash on the highway,)
(But, I didnít hear nobody pray.)

Instrumental

I wish I could change this sad story,
That I am now telliní you.
But there is no way I can change it,
For somebodyís life is now through.

Their soul has been called by the Master,
They died in a crash on the way.
And I heard the groans of the dying,
But, I didnít hear nobody pray.

(I didnít hear nobody pray, dear brother,)
(I didnít hear nobody pray.)
(I heard the crash on the highway,)
(But, I didnít hear nobody pray.)
