Kneeling Drunkard's Plea 
By Johnny Cash written by June, Helen and Anita Carter

C G7
Lord have mercy on me
F C
Was the kneeling drunkard's plea
F
And as he knelt there on the ground
C G7 C
I know that God in Heaven looked down

G7
I went down by an old country church
F C
I saw the drunkard stagger and lurch
F
And as he reached his mothers grave
C G7 C
I saw that drunkard kneel and pray

Repeat #1

G7
Bring my darling boy to me
F C
Was his mothers dying plea
F
And as staggered through the gate
C G7 C
Alas he came just one day too late

G7
Three years have passed since she went away
F C
Her son is sleeping beside her today
F
And I know in heaven his mother will see
C G7 C
For God has heard that drunkard's plea

Repeat #1
