The Night Was Dark And Deep

	  		
Intro C 

Verse 
C 
We were driving back from the country one night 
                                                 Am7 
Mom and Dad up the front, the rest of us snug and tight 
C 
My kid brother grumbled for a little minute 
                                           Am7 
And my big sister said he better quit it or die 

Verse 
       F 
It had been a long day in the countryside 
Dm7 
Playing with the cousins on my motherís side 
    C 
The sound of the radio closed our eyes 
G                                     Am7 
Drifting across the sea, then I fell asleep 

Verse 
      C 
Well, I donít know what woke me up 
                                           Am7 
Maybe a country song or a big truck passing by 
C 
I could hear Mama and Papa talk 
                                  Am7 
Papa said something and Mama began to cry 

Verse 
F 
No more words then, just soft sobs 
Dm7 
And my head began to throb 
C 
I just lay there playing dog 
G                                            Am7    F 
Breathing slow and deep, they thought I was asleep 
     G            Am7 
They thought I was asleep 

Instrumental 
C    Am7    C    Am7    F  Dm7  C  G    Am7 

Verse 
   C 
It seemed like forever till the sobbing stopped 
                                                    Am7 
Then they talked for a little, but just too soft to hear 
C 
Daddy kept looking to the side of her face 
                                             Am7 
One hand on the wheel, the other one stroking her hair 

Verse 
F 
Headlights shining from the other way 
       Dm7 
Showed tears on the cheeks of Daddyís face 
  C 
I prayed for Jesus to send his grace 
    G                                    Am7        F 
And all our souls to keep, back then I believed it 
     G              Am7    F 
They thought I was asleep 
    G             Am7        F 
The night was dark and deep 
  G           Am7    F 
I wish I was asleep 
      G           Am7 
How I wish I was asleep 

Outro 
F  G  Am7  F  G  Am7  F  G  Am7  x2
