Kneeling Drunkard's Plea
Recorded by The Louvin Brothers
Written by Anita Carter, Helen Carter,
Mother Maybelle Carter and June Carter Cash

G D7
Lord have mercy on me
C G
Was the kneeling drunkard's plea
C
And as he knelt there on the ground
G D7 G
I know that God from heaven looked down

D7
I went down by an old country church
C G
I saw the drunkard stagger and lurch
C
And as he reached his mother's grave
G D7 G
I saw that drunkard kneel and pray

Repeat #1

D7
Bring my darling boy to me
C G
Was his mother's dying plea
C
And as he staggered through the gate
G D7 G
Alas he came just one day too late

D7
Three years have passed since she went away
C G
Her son is sleeping beside her today
C
And I know that in heaven his mother he'll see
G D7 G
For God has heard that drunkard's plea

G D7
Lord have mercy on me
C G
Was the kneeling drunkard's plea
C
And as he knelt there on the ground
G D7 C G
I know that God from heaven looked down
