The three of them climbed into the Mustang
Like every other Saturday night
Doing shots and chasers at the local bar
Protected from the cold October bite
Glassy eyed and hammered to the bone
That place had become their second home

Grew up in houses side by side
Formed a bond and never questioned why
Raising hell, never had a clue
Who they were or what they had to do
Fired up that Mustang never looking back
Headlights out of nowhere
Stopped them in their tracks

The music played, the band was number one
Thinking back
Can't remember what they'd sung
Waitress said goodnight
Had a feeling from within
Trio in that Mustang
Won't be coming back again
Down the road to a blinding flash
Anybodys guess if they ever heard the crash

Still the music plays
Like they've never gone away
Still the music plays
On that ninth October day

Oh gees, I hope this is not a true story....But how painfully hard this hits home....spent my fair share of days doing the same thing, living that life - thank God there were 20+ angels sitting on the hood of my car at the end of every night! Ready to follow me home, for I always made it alive! Although it took a bad accident to stop me in my tracks too....luckily no one was hurt too bad. Sheesh!! Thanks for sharing, makes me glad I'm not young and wreckless anymore!! Not that I'm OLD or anything!

Yes, very sad indeed. Senseless tragedy. You have expressed it well. Perhaps it will help somebody to think before they drink and drive.

LostBoy - It's certainly a sad reminder of a tragedy that's repeated over and over and over again.

If you drink don't drive.
If you drive don't drink.
pretty well covers it,
don't you think ?

A tragedy indeed! I had my drinkin days too. Though any amount can be lethal when behind the wheel. I thank God I'm changed. It is dangerous. Thanks for the reminder!!!

Thanks all, unfortunately this sad tale is a true one. A few friends of mine some years back, yes, drinking and driving.
Femme, your just young, but not wreckless!!!!

I am sorry for your loss, lostboy. This is very sad.
