Song lyrics aren't supposed to be a fountain of perfect english, but on the other hand some are just so
atrocious, they need to get called out. We're not looking for sentance fragments or the word ain't since there are too many instances to count.
Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics, David Allan Coe

Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got runned over by dammed old train.
To add to Chris' entry, the last line should be "She got ran over..."

All right now, my English teacher is covering her ears now! I have heard a pickup truck referred to as a 'she', which is incorrect; threfore, you don't know WHAT got hit - the mother or the truck!
