--Don’t tell mama-- Gary Allan

F

F
I was headed north on Highway Five
      Bb
On a star-lit Sunday night
       C                  C7
When a pick-up truck flew by me
          F
out of control

     F                  F7
As I watched in my headlights
           Bb
He swerved left then back right
          C              C7
He never hit the brakes
           F
As he left the road

             F            F7 
I found him lying in the grass
  Bb
Among the steel and glass
        C            C7
With an empty whiskey bottle
      F
by his side

     F                     F7
And through the blood and tears
     Bb
He whispered in my ear
   C               C7
A few last words
             F
just before he died


F          F7          Bb  
Don't tell Mama I was drinkin'
      F                         C     C7
Lord knows her soul would never rest
F                F7             Bb   
I can't leave this world with Mama thinkin'
  C           C7                  F        
I met the Lord  with whiskey on my breath


C   F

         F                
I still think about that night
    Bb
And how that young man died
        C           C7
And how others sometimes pay
            F
for our mistakes

    F                  F7
The last thing on his mind
       Bb 
As he left this world behind
     C               C7
Was knowing someone else's
             F
heart would break

F          F7           Bb  
Don't tell Mama I was drinkin'
      F                        C     C7
Lord knows her soul would never rest
F                F7              Bb   
I can't leave this world with Mama thinkin'
  C           C7                  F        
I met the Lord  with whiskey on my breath


F          F7          Bb 
Don't tell Mama I was drinkin'

IMO, it sounds better and is easier to play with a capo on the 1st fret, hit transpose down once. Great tab
