The Kneeling Drunkard's Plea  Johnny Cash

Kneeling Drunkard's Plea (Written by June, Helen and Anita Carter)
-- Johnny Cash (Unchained Album)
Chorus: [C]Lord have [G]mercy on me
was the kneelin [D5]drunkard's [C]plea
and as he knelt there [D5]on the [D]ground
1. [C]I went down by an old [G]country church
I saw the drunkard [D5]stagger and [C]lurch
and as he reached his [D5]mothers [D]grave
I [C]saw that drunkard [G]kneel and [C]pray
2. Bring my darlin boy to me
was his mothers dyin plea
and as staggered through the gate
alas he came just one day too late
3. Three years have passed since she went away
her son is sleepin beside her today
and I know in heaven his mother will see
for God has heard that drunkard's plea
D5 X0023X - I think it is some D chord and this is the best one
