I’m Gonna Sleep With One Eye Open
by Chris Thile     Capo: 3rd fret
I just found out today
The little game you play
While I been sleepin' all my life a-way
You been steppin' so they say
Between midnight and day
So I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

Chorus:
From now on (from now on),  all night long (all night long)
You won't have a chance
To treat your mummy wrong
You been steppin' so they say
Between midnight and day
So I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

There's a honky-tonk down the road
Just about a mile or so
And I understand that's where you spend your time
Baby, I got news for you
Your little game is through
Yeah, from now on baby
You better tow the line

Repeat Chorus

You thought you were bein' wise
hangin out with other guys
And leavin' me to spend my time a-lone
Well you'll find out today
It just don't work that way
You've started a little game that two can play

Repeat Chorus
