The wreck on the highway

Who did you say it was, brother
Who was it, fell by the way
When whiskey and blood run together
Did you hear anyone pray

    I didn't hear nobody pray dear brother
    I didn't hear nobody pray
    I heard the crash on the highway
    But I didn't hear nobody 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 stmped on my heart

 * Refrain

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

 * Refrain

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

 * Refrain

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

 * Refrain
