They Thought I Was Asleep – Paul Kelly

C
We were driving back from the country one night
                                         G        Am
Mum and Dad up front and the rest of us snug and tight
C
My kid brother grizzled for a little minute
                                     G          Am
‘Til my big sister told he’d better quit it or die
F
It had been a long day in the countryside
Dm
Playing’ with the cousins on my mother’s side
C                                                                       G       Am
The sound of the radio closed our eyes drifting across the seat then I fell asleep
C                                                                 G       Am
I don’t know what woke me up, maybe a country song or a big truck passing by
C
But I could hear Momma and Papa talking
                              G        Am
Papa said something and Momma began to cry
F                                      Dm
No more words than just soft sobs and then my head began to throb
C                                               G
I just lay there playing dog breathing slow and deep
                     Am    F  G                      Am
They thought I was asleep,   They thought that I was asleep

HARMONICA
C   G  Am x 2
F   G  Am  x 2

C
Well it seemed like forever til the sobbing stopped
                                       G       Am
Then they talked for a little just too soft to hear
         C
And Daddy kept looking at the side of her face
                                   G            Am
One hand on the wheel and one hand stroking her hair
F
The headlights shinin’ from the other way
                 Dm
Showed tears on the cheeks on Daddy’s face
C
I prayed for Jesus to send his grace
      G                                   Am
And all our souls to keep – back then I believed
F        G          Am
They thought I was asleep
F      G               Am
The night was dark and deep
F         G       C
How I wish I was asleep.............................
