"You Can Sleep While I Drive"

written by Melissa Ethridge, copyright 1989 Almo Music Corp.
sung by Trisha Yearwood on her "Thinkin' About You" CD
transcribed and submitted by Bruce Winges

(original is in Dm; play slowly, deliberately)

        Em                          D
Come on baby, let's get out of this town
        Em                         D
I got a full tank of gas, with the top rolled down
        A                                   Bm        G
There's a chill in my bones, I don't want to be left alone
   Em            G            D
So baby, you can sleep while drive.

I'll pack my bag and load up my guitar
In my pocket I'll carry my harp
I got some money I saved, enough to get underway
And baby, you can sleep while I drive.

We'll go through Tucson up to Santa Fe
And Barbara in Nashville says we're welcome to stay
I'll buy you boots down in Texas, a hat from New Orleans
And in the morning you can tell me your dreams.

You know I've seen it before
                G          D
This mist that covers your eyes
             A                           G            D
You've been looking for something that's not in your life
    A                              Bm           G
My intentions are true, won't you take me with you
     Em             G           D
And baby, you can sleep while I drive.

Bm  A   D
Oh, oh, oh is it other arms you want to
Bm   A   D
h--o--ld   you, the stranger,
the lover, you're free
           Bm           G  (pause)
Can't you get that with me?

Come on baby, let's get out of this town
I've got a full tank of gas, with the top rolled down
If you won't take me with you, I'll go before night is through
And baby, you can sleep while I drive.
