This is a really great and easy song to play. Definitely one of my favorites. It 
can be played on an acoustic guitar, or a banjitar (how BNL play it). It's off the 
2000 album "Maroon".

[Intro]
G, D, Cadd9, D (x2)

[Verse 1]
G       D       Cadd9   D
Driving home to be with you
    G            D           Cadd9      D
The highway's dividing, the city's in view
Am               Esus      E
   As usual, I'm almost on time
Am                       Esus         E
   You're the last thing that's on my mind
  G               D         Cadd9       D
I wish I could tell you the way that I feel
       Em7          G              D           G
But tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

[Verse 2]
No commotion, no screaming brakes
Most of it's over before I awake
From the ceiling, my coffee cup drips
While out my window, the horizon does flips
The worst part was hitting the ground -
Not the feeling so much as the sound
Can't help but wonder if all this is real
Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

[Verse 3]
Rubberneck traffic and passersby
And Slow Motion Walter the fire engine guy
Stand around with their mouths open wide
I heard some idiot ask if someone's inside
Cadd9       G                 Cadd9          G
  With the Jaws of Life they tried and they tried
Nobody here can know how I feel
Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

[Bridge]
G  D          Cadd9  D
I  guess it's over   now
           G
Cause I've never seen so much
D                   Cadd9
Never seen so much, never seen so much
D
Never seen so much
G  D          Cadd9  D 
I  guess it's over   now
           G
Cause I've never seen so much
D                   Cadd9
Never seen so much, never seen so much
D (Strum rapidly, then let ring)
Bloooooooood!

[Verse 4]
In all the confusion, there's something serene
I'm just a posthumous part of the scene
Now I'm floating above looking in
As the radio blares and wheels spin
I can see my face slump with a grin
    D
And you...

[Coda]
           G          D      Cadd9    D
You're the last thing on my mind
           G          D      Cadd9    D
You're the last thing on my mind
           G          D      Cadd9    D
You're the last thing on my mind
           G          D      Cadd9    D
You're the last thing on my mind

Gsus, G, D6, D, C6, C, D7sus, D7

G (Strumming rapidly)
Oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
