Wreck On The Highway Chords

   
The wreck on the highway

written by Dorsey Dixon
performed by Townes van Zandt (Highway Kind)

D 
Who did you say it was brother?
                        A
Who was it fell by the way?
       D
When whiskey and blood run together
         A            D
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.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/v/van_zandt_townes/wreck_on_the_highway_crd.html ]
When I hear the crash on the highway
I knew waht 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
