      About "Drunken Driver"

      Lyrics for Ricky Skaggs - "Drunken Driver"

      Now listen here, drunken driver
      While here on earth you dwell
      You never know when the time will come
      When you'll have to say farewell

      I saw an accident one day
      Would charm the hearts of man
      And teach him never to drink a drop
      With a steerin' wheel in his hand

      This awful accident occurred
      On the twentieth day of May
      And caused to loving children
      To sleep beneath the clay

      These two dear kids walked side by side
      Out on a state highway
      Their lovin' mother, she had died
      And their father had run away

      They were talking of their loving parents
      How sad their hearts did feel
      When around the curve came a speedin' car
      With a drunk man at the wheel

      The driver saw these two dear kids
      And hooted a drunkard sound
      "Get out of the road, you little fools"
      And the car had brought them down

      The driver staggered from his car
      To see what he had done
      His heart sank within him
      When he saw his dyin' on

      He then picked up his little one
      And carried him to his car
      Then leanin' on the runnin' board
      He prayed a drunkard's prayer

      Sayin', "Please, oh Lord, forgive me
      For this awful crime I've done"
      His attention then was called away
      To the words of his dyin' son

      Sayin' "Take us to our mother, Dad
      She sleeps beneath the ground
      It was you and her we was talkin' about
      When the car had knocked us down"

      "And please, dear Dad, don't drink no more
      While drivin' on your way
      But meet us with our mother, Dad
      In heaven some sweet day"
