CAPO I

Verse 1
      F
I was headed north on highway 5
     A#
On a starlit summer night
       C                              F
When a pickup truck flew by me out of control
     F
As I watched in my headlights
           A#
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

Chorus
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

Verse3
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

Chorus
