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
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
