Performer: Roy Acuff Words and music: Dorsey Dixon From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk THE WRECK ON THE HIGHWAY [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. CHORUSHome
