Asleep at the wheel
Lyrics
Copyright Ac 2009 Jim Ferrie Music

You take a good look around
Are you sure you're okay?
Are you on the right track?
Have you covered your back?
Or did you go the wrong way?

Something bound to go wrong?
What's the chances of that?
Is there something you missed
When you checked off the list
As you were chewin' the fat?

Moment of weakness just a little laid-back
And out of the light your world turns to black
Better be certain as a matter of fact, coz
When the deed's done there ain't no turnin' back
Devil's in the details, so you better make sure you don't fall
Asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel

Did you care from the start?
Busy makin' a buck?
Right attitude?
Just too smart to get screwed?
Are you trustin' to luck?

You check one hundred percent?
Leavin' nothin' to chance
Lies become true
Devil slides out of view
And you won't see him dance

Moment of weakness just a little laid-back
And out of the light your world turns to black
Better be certain as a matter of fact, coz
When the deed's done there ain't no turning back
Does your guardian angel fly faster than you're able to drive? (don't fall)
Asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel

Have you ever thought about what it is, who really matters to you?
Is the voice in your head the one thing that you dread
When it's callin' to you?
Don't fall asleep at the wheel!

Devil's gonna steal, ain't no deal when you're
Asleep at the wheel
