Miller, Jack and Mad Dog
by Wayne Hancock on A-Town Blues Track 04

(Em) Last night I saw a bunch of kids (Am) swervin' down route 1
(Em) They's goin' fast as lightnin', Lord I (B7) guess they's havin' fun
(Em) They tried to take the corner but they (Am) couldn't hold the turn
(Em) And I saw them hit the treeline as their (B7) hot rod flipped and (Em)

(Am) Miller, Jack and Mad Dog will (Em) do you everytime
(E) But they're no good for staying to the (B7) right side of that line
(Em) If Johhny Law don't get you (Am) somebody else could die
(Em) So do yourself a favor don't go (B7) drivin' while your're (Em) high.

I ran toward the wreckage but there was nothin' I could do
The fire burned so hot, Lord, I realized they was through
The car was full of people never knowin' what they done
And worst of all the driver 'cause he just turned twenty one.
