(VERSE I)

      G                                 C
I was headed north on Highway Five on a star-lit, Sunday night

       D                                G
When a pickup truck flew by me out of control

     G                                    C
As I watched in my headlights, he swerved left, then back right

         D                              G
He never hit the brakes as he left the road


(VERSE II)

            G                   C
I found him lying in the grass, among the steel and glass

        D                           G
With an empty whiskey bottle by his side

    G                               C
And through the blood and tears, he whispered in my ear

  D                             G
A few last words just before he died


(CHORUS)

G (single strum)      C
Don't tell mama I was drinkin'

     G                          D
Lord knows her soul would never rest

    G                                  C
And I can't leave this world with mama thinkin'

  D                               G
I met the Lord with whiskey on my breath


(VERSE III)

        G                          C
I still think about that night and how that young man died

        D                            G
And how others sometimes pay for our mistakes

    G                            C
The last thing on his mind as he left this world behind

    D                                  G
Was knowing someone else's heart would break


(CHORUS)

G (single strum)      C
Don't tell mama I was drinkin'

     G                          D
Lord knows her soul would never rest

    G                                  C
And I can't leave this world with mama thinkin'

  D                               G
I met the Lord with whiskey on my breath

G (single strum)      C (single strum)
Don't tell mama I was drinkin'
