Don't Tell Mama I Was Drinking

I was headed north on Highway 5
On a starlit Sunday night
When a pick-up truck flew by me out of control
As I watched in my headlights,
He swerved left, then back right
Never hit the brakes as he left the road

But I found him lying
There among steel and glass
With an empty whiskey bottle by his side
And through the blood and tears
He whispered in my ear
These few words, but just before he died

"Don't tell mama I was drinking
Lord knows, that her soul would never rest
I can't leave this world with my mama thinking
I met the Lord with whiskey on my breath"

I still think about
How this poor boy left this world
And how others have to pay for our mistakes
But the last thing on his mind
As he left this whole world behind
Was wondering someone else's heart would break

"So Don't tell mama I was drinking
Lord knows, her soul would never rest
But I can't leave this world with my mama thinking
I met the Lord with whiskey on my breath
So Don't tell mama I was drinking"
