G       D       C       D
Driving home to be with you
G         D           C          D
Highways divided, the citys in view
Am E         Am        E
As usual Im almost on time
Am         E         Am           E
Youre the last thing thats on my mind
G            D           C            D
Wish I could tell you the way that I feel
Em                   G               D            G
Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel
G D C D
No commotion, no screaming brakes
G D C D
Most of its over before I awake
G D C D
From the ceiling my coffee cup drips
G D C D
While out my window the horizon does flips
Am E E
The worst part was hitting the ground
Am E E
Not the feeling so much as the sound
G D C D
Cant help but wonder if all this is real
Em G D G
Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel
G D C D
Rubberneck traffic, and passersby
G D C D
Slow-motion Walter the fire engine guy
Am E E
Standing round with their mouths open wide
Am E E
Heard some idiot ask if someones inside
G D C D
With the jaws of life they tried and they tried
G D C D
But nobody here, can know how I feel
Em G D G
Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel
G  D         C     D
I guess its over now
G                               D                   C    
Cause Ive never seen so much, never seen so much, never
              D
seen so much, never seen so much
G D C D
I guess its over now
G D C D
Cause Ive never seen so much, never seen so much, never seen so much
blooooooooood
G D C D
Through all this confusion theres something serene
G D C D
Im just a posthumous part of the scene
Am E E
Now Im floating above looking in
Am E E
While the radio blares and wheels spin
G      C           G            C        D
I can see my face slump with a grin. And you:
G            D        C     D
youre the last thing on my mind,
G D C D
youre the last thing on my mind,
G D C D
youre the last thing on my mind,
G D C
youre the last thing on my mind
G
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
