John Wesley Harding – Wreck On The Highway lyrics

[A] Who did you say it was brother?
Who was it fell by the [E] way?
When [A] whiskey and blood run together
Did you hear [E] anyone [A] pray?

Chorus
I didn't hear nobody pray, dear brother
I [D] didn't hear nobody [A] pray
I heard the crash on the highway
But, I didn't hear [E] nobody [A] pray.

When I heard the crash on the highway
I knew what it was from the start
I went to the scene of destruction
And a picture was stamped on my heart.

There was whiskey and blood all together
Mixed with glass where they lay
Death played her hand in destruction
But I didn't hear nobody pray.

I wish I could change this sad story
That I am now telling you
But there is no way I can change it
For somebody's life is now through.

Their soul has been called by the Master
They died in a crash on the way
And I heard the groans of the dying
But, I didn't hear nobody pray.

Chorus
