Friends, my name is Ferlin Husky. I'd like to tell you 'bout a man that let alcohol destroy everything that God gave him I saw an accident one day that would chill the heart of any man It would teach them not to drink a drop While the steering wheel's in their hand This awful accident occurred on the 20th day of May And caused two little children to be sleepin' beneath the clay These two little kids walked side by side along the state highway Their poor old mother, she had died And their daddy had ran away As these two little children walked arm in arm How sad their hearts did feel When around the curb came a speeding car With a drunk man at the wheel The drunk man saw the little kids And he hollered a drunked sound "Get out of the road you little fools" And the car, it brought them down The bumper struck the little girl, takin' her life away While the little boy, in a puddle of blood In the ditch, lyin' there did lay The drunk man staggered from his car To see the damage that he had done And then he let out a yell you could hear for miles When he recognized his dyin' son Such mournin' from a drunken man, I've never heard before While kneeling down by his car he prayed to heavens door Sayin', "Oh God, please forgive me for this awful crime I've done" And his attention then was called away By the words of his dyin' son He said, "Daddy, why did you do this to us How come you run us to the ground? It was you and Mummy we were talkin' about, When the car, it brought us down And I was just tellin' little sister That I knew we'd see you again someday But, Daddy, why did it have to be this way Why did it
