Song Meaning
Verse 1
(George)
Who did you say it was brother
Who was it fell by the way
When whiskey and blood ran together
Did you hear anyone pray?
Verse 2
(Gene)
When I heard the crash on the highway
I knew what it was from the start
I went to the scene of destruction
And the picture was stamped on my heart.
Verse 3
(Both)
I didn't hear nobody pray dear brother
I didn't hear nobody pray
I've heard the crash on the highway
But I didn't hear nobody pray.
Verse 4
(Gene)
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.
Verse 5
(George)
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.
Verse 6
(Both)
I didn't hear nobody pray dear brother
I didn't hear nobody pray
I've heard the crash on the highway
But I didn't hear nobody pray.
Verse 7
(Gene)
Their soul has been called by the Master
They died in the crash on the way
I heard the groans of the dying
But I didn't hear nobody pray.
Verse 8
(Both)
I didn't hear nobody pray dear brother
I didn't hear nobody pray
I've heard the crash on the highway
But I didn't hear nobody pray.
No, I didn't hear nobody pray
