                DON'T TELL MAMA I WAS DRINKING
                       FRANKIE BALLARD


CAPO: NONE

INTRO:
    F#
E ------------
B --------2---
G ------3-----
D ----4-------
A --4---------
E ------------

VERSE:
F#
I was headed north on Highway 5
B
On a starlit Sunday night
        Db                B                F#
When a pick-up truck flew by me out of control

      F#
As I watched in my headlights,
     B
He swerved left 

And then back right

      Db  
Never hit the brakes 
B               F#
As he left the road


VERSE:
             F#
I found him lying in the grass 
  B
Among the steel and glass
        Db             B             F#
With an empty whiskey bottle by his side

      F#
And through the blood and tears, 
     B
He whispered in my ear
  Db             
A few last words 
 B              F#
Just before he died


CHORUS:

And he said, 
  F#                     B
"Don't tell mama I was drinking
            F#
Cause Lord knows 
                           Db
That her soul would never rest

    F#
And I can't leave this world 
               B
With my mama thinking

       Db
That I met the Lord 
       B             F#
With whiskey on my breath"


VERSE:
   F#
I still think about that night
     B
And how that young man died
    Db                B
How others sometimes pay 
         F#
For our mistakes

          F#
Well the last thing on his mind
       B
As he left this world behind
     Db             B                   F#
Was knowing someone else's heart would break


CHORUS:

And he says 
  F#                     B
"Don't tell mama I was drinking
            F#
Cause Lord knows 
                           Db
That her soul would never rest

       F#
No, I can't leave this world 
               B
With my mama thinking

       Db
That I met the Lord 
       B             F#
With whiskey on my breath"

Woho woh woh


INSTRUMENTAL/SOLO:
B         F#
    Yeah yeah ah ah
Db        B      F#
Oh oh    woh woh


CHORUS:
  F#                     B      
"Don't tell mama I was drinking
            F#
Cause Lord knows 
                           Db
That her soul would never rest

    F#
No, I can't leave this world 
               B
With my mama thinking no

       Db
That I met the Lord 
       B             F#
With whiskey on my breath

       Db
That I met the Lord 
       B             F#     B  F#
With whiskey on my breath"
