It goes without saying that it's a terrible idea to get hammered and reach for the car keys but if you do, don't intensify your woes by running over your own kids.
Today I'd like to shine the light on a formerly obscure tearjerker (OK, never mind, it's going to remain obscure) from Lee "Hoss" Moss that pulls no punches. Moss, an Orlando area country DJ, released this preposterously tragic anti-drunk driving record in the mid 1960s.
If you've ever heard Ferlin Husky's 1954 recording of The Drunken Driver, you know where this wreck winds up. That's right, just like in the Ferlin Husky record, a guy gets boozed up and hops behind the wheel, only to plow over and kill his own kid. The storyline on the Moss record is almost exactly identical to that heard Husky's The Drunken Driver, though the intensity was toned down a bit as Husky killed two of his kids in the mayhem and Moss just one.
And if you really can't resist depression, you can check out two other versions of The Drunken Driver. Here's one by Ricky Skaggs and you can visit the Beware Of The Blog archives to hear Harley Ford's take on this tragic tune.
