A metaphor for the demons we all have. Special thanks to Bill for waking up in time.

Lyrics

Asleep at the Wheel (Anderson-Gram copyright 2000)

Billy hit the road one day
Felt himself just drift away
Closed his eyes
Woke up just before he hit the wall, a real close call
My,my almost goodbye

He sat there just a little while
Managed a nervous smile
Turned and drove away, just drove away
Looked back and saw the tracks of all those who never came back
He began to pray, yeah he began to pray

He said, “Lord oh Lord I am here to make a deal
Left or right, right or wrong I just go with what I feel
I’ll do my best to keep these roads beneath my wheels
Just give me a nudge a push or a shove
If you see me asleep at the wheel
Give me a nudge a push or a shove
If you see me asleep at the wheel”

Cruising easy now
Feeling Blessed somehow
Almost home, almost home
“Just a little more” he said “and I’ll be safe again
Until tomorrow yeah what about tomorrow”

Chorus

It’s such a mystery each time he turns that key
Did he hear the warning
So Billy hit the road one day
Felt himself just drift away
It’s another morning yeah it’s another morning

Chorus
