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
