E A D G B E
D                                                                                
I was headed north on highway five 

        G
on a star-lit Sunday night 
 
           A                              D
When a pick-up truck flew by me out of controL 

             D
As I watched in my headlights

             G
He swerved left then back right
 
           A                            D
He never hit the brakes as he left the road

              D
I found him lying in the grass
 G                 
Among the steel and glass  
          A                          D
With an empty whiskey bottle by his side
            D
And through The blood and tears
       G
He whispered in my ear
      A                          D
A few last words just before he died


Chorus
  NC          D7             G                                
Don't Tell Mamma I was drinkin'
D                                A
Lord knows her soul would never rest
D                                      G
I can't leave this world with Mamma thinkin' 
   A                                D
I met the Lord with whiskey on my breath

                                                                        
 D  
I still think about that nighT 
     G
and how that young man died
          A                            D
And how others somtimes pay for our mistakes
            D
The last thing on his mind
        G
As he left this world behind
       A                               D
Was knowing someone elses heart would break

(repeat chorus)

This doesn't seem right. If I Capo 1 and play an E A B progression it seems to match the music right.
