CARRIE UNDERWOOD – JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy
With the baby in the backseat

Fifty miles to go and she was running low
On faith and gasoline
It’d been a long hard year

She had a lot on her mind and she didn’t pay attention
She was going way too fast
Before she knew it she was spinning
On a thin black sheet of glass

She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn’t even have time to cry
She was so scared
She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus, take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this on my own

I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I’m on
Jesus,take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat
Sleeping like a rock

And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I’m sorry for the way
I’ve been living my life

I know I’ve got to change
So from now on tonight

Jesus, take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this on my own

I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I’m on

Oh Jesus,take the wheel
Oh,I’m letting go

So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I’m on 
From this road I’m on
Jesus,take the wheel
Oh,take it,take it from me
oh,oh,oh wooh

SHE IS AN  INSPIRATION JUST LIKE HER SONG.
