Drunken Driver

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

I saw an accident one day
That should turn the heart of men
Teach them not to drink a drop
While the steering wheel’s in their hands

This awful accident occurred
On the 20th day of May
Causing two little children
To sleep beneath the clay

These two little children walked side-by-side
Along the state highway
Their mother she had died
Their father had run away

They were thinking of their loving parents
How sad their heart did feel
When around the curve came a speeding car
With a drunk man at the wheel

The drunkard staggered from his car
To see what he had done
His heart, it sank within him
When he saw his loving son

He picked up his loving one
And he carried him to the car
And kneeling on the running board
He prayed a drunkard’s prayer

“Please The Lord forgive me
For this awful crime I’ve done”
His attention then was drawn
To the words of his dying son

“Please dear Daddy don’t you drink no more
While driving on your way
Come and meet us and Mother
In heaven some sweet day.”
