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
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
