Lyrics for Kneeling Drunkards Plea by Johnny Cash

Kneeling Drunkards Plea - Lyrics

Download Lyrics
"Lord, have mercy on me,"
Was the kneelin' 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 mother's grave,
I saw that drunkard kneel and pray.
"Lord, have mercy on me,"
Was the kneelin' 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 mother's dying plea.
And as he staggered through the gate,
A lassie came just one day too late.

Three years have passed since she went away,
Her son is sleepin' beside her today,
And I know that in heaven his mother he'll 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.
I know that God in heaven looked down.

Appears on: Unchained (American Recordings II)-1996, Love, God,
Murder-2000, et al.]

The Carter Family was a country music group that recorded
between 1927 and 1956. Their music had a profound impact on
bluegrass, country, southern gospel, pop and rock musicians,
as well as on the U.S. folk revival of the 1960s. They were
the first vocal group to become country music stars. Such songs
as "Wabash Cannonball," "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," "Wildwood
Flower" and "Keep On the Sunny Side" became country standards.
In 1968, Johnny Cash married June Carter, a second-generation,
Carter family member & singer-songwriter, and they lived happily
together until June's death on May 15, 2003. Johnny died a few
months later on September 12, 2003 from complications due to diabetes.]
