Track Name: Asleep at the Wheel
D G
Oh mercy Lord I fell asleep driving
D G
headed for nowhere running from ghosts
A B
my mind's so mixed up from the coffee and sadness
B G A D
but that's what you get when you travel alone
E B D A G
I'm awake with my head on the edge of the wheel
E B G B
policemans badge shines in the sun
E B D A G
he tells me I have to get off this highway
E B G F E D
he tells me to get home alive
D G
Oh mercy Lord I sped down that highway
D G
searching for comfort, searching for rest
A B
the ghost rests her head on the passengers window
B G A D
an ambulance driver passes me by
E B D A G
The next turnoff has a small place to eat
E B G B
the waitress looks like this girl that I know
E B D A G
she tilts her head as she pours me my coffee
E B G F E D
how did hurt someone so beautiful?
D G
Oh mercy ma'am have you small children?
D G
Does a man love you? Does he help with the bills?
A B
She looks at me blankly and shifts her hair sharply,
B G A D
"I'm sorry mister you better move on through".
A G D A
Now that I outstayed my very last welcome I don't know where to turn
A G D A
I walk outside and on the roof of the diner, is the ghost, the girl that I killed.

G...D... X4
B A G
I close my eyes and I see the girl, lying there dead on the side of the road
