Kneeling Drunkard's Plea

[C]Lord have [G7]mercy on me
Was the kneeling [F]drunkard's [C]plea
And as he knelt there [F]on the ground
I [C]know that God in [G7]Heaven looked [C]down

I went down by an [G7]old country church
I saw the drunkard [F]stagger and [C]lurch
And as he reached his [F]mothers grave
I [C]saw that drunkard [G7]kneel and [C]pray

[C]Lord have [G7]mercy on me
Was the kneeling [F]drunkard's [C]plea
And as he knelt there [F]on the ground
I [C]know that God in [G7]Heaven looked [C]down

Bring my darling [G7]boy to me
Was his mothers [F]dying [C]plea
And as staggered [F]through the gate
Alas [C]he came just one [G7]day too [C]late

Three years have passed [G7]since she went away
Her son is sleeping [F]beside her [C]today
And I know in heaven his [F]mother will see
For [C]God has heard that [G7]drunkard's [C]plea

[C]Lord have [G7]mercy on me
Was the kneeling [F]drunkard's [C]plea
And as he knelt there [F]on the ground
I [C]know that God in [G7]Heaven looked [C]down

Lord have mercy on me
Was the kneeling drunkard's plea
And as he knelt there on the ground
I know that God in Heaven looked down

I went down by an old country church
I saw the drunkard stagger and lurch
And as he reached his mothers grave
I saw that drunkard kneel and pray

Lord have mercy on me
Was the kneeling drunkard's plea
And as he knelt there on the ground
I know that God in Heaven looked down

Bring my darling boy to me
Was his mothers dying plea
And as staggered through the gate
Alas he came just one day too late

Three years have passed since she went away
Her son is sleeping beside her today
And I know in heaven his mother will see
For God has heard that drunkard's plea

Lord have mercy on me
Was the kneeling drunkard's plea
And as he knelt there on the ground
I know that God in Heaven looked down
