Verse 1
I was headed north on highway 5
On a starlit summer night
       C                              F
When a pickup truck flew by me out of control
As I watched in my headlights
He swerved left and then back right
         C                             F
He never hit the brakes as he left the road

Verse 2
I found him lying in the grass
Among the steel and glass
With an empty whisky bottle by his side
Through the blood tears
He whispered in my ear
A few last words just before he died

F                    A#
Dont tell mama I was drinkin
     F                          C
Lord knows her soul would never rest
F                                 A#
I cant leave this world with mama thinkin
       C                               F
That I met the lord with whiskey on my breath

I still think about that night
And how that young man died
And how others sometimes pay for our mistakes
The last thing on his mind
As he left this world behind
Was knowing someone elses heart would break

i like the sound when you play it with A-D-E
-nonnieismylady | 5/25/2005
you got the key, and the chord progression right. Well done, I love this song, and mainly I looked it up for all the lyrics., But if you want to play out of F, and have a hard time with that key... Capo on the first fret, and play out of E, or capo on the 3rd fret, and play out of D.... Someimes these are easier when it comes to playing out of F.
