Scared at Night  Kathleen Edwards

CAPO: 1st Fret
INTRO: C ~ ~ G F C ~ ~ G F
C ~ Am
As a child I would wake at night
C ~ ~ Am
I was scared, but I kept real quiet
F ~ Am
Shadows on the walls moving in on me
C ~ Am F
And underneath my sheets I could barely breathe
C ~ Am
And your room was only just across a hall
C ~ ~ Am
All it would have taken was a single call
F ~ Am
And maybe sometimes we've got to trust ourselves
C ~ Am F
Not to scream out loud and run like hell
CHORUS:
Be[Dm]lieve me, [Am]all the days you're un[G]sure
Be[Dm]lieve in me, I don't [Am]want to anym[G]ore
And [Dm]in the dark, [Am]picture me in your [G]mind
And I'll [Dm]lay with you
C ~ G
You don't ever be scared at night
INTERLUDE: C ~ ~ G F C ~ ~ G F
C ~ Am
As a young man you were shooting rats
C ~ ~ Am
By accident, you hit the farmyard cat
F ~ Am
He ran for the fields and came back the next day
C ~ Am F
You had blown out his eye and you could see his brain
C ~ Am
Your dad said, "Boy, there are some things in life
C ~ ~ Am
You don't want to do, but you know is right
F ~ Am
So take him out back and finish him off"
C ~ Am F
You got your gun off the shelf, it only took one shot
CHORUS:
Be[Dm]lieve me, [Am]all the days you're un[G]sure
Be[Dm]lieve in me, I don't [Am]want to any[G]more
And [Dm]in the dark, [Am]picture me in your [G]mind
And I'll [Dm]lay with you
C ~ G
So you don't ever be scared at night
INTERLUDE: C ~ ~ G F C ~ ~ G F
C ~ Am
And I flew to Winnipeg on your final day
C ~ ~ Am
They said that you waited 'til I came
F ~ Am
We sang your favourite hymns and we held your hand
C ~ F
You took your final breath and that was that
C ~ Am
But I'd never seen a person die before
C ~ ~ Am
I tried so hard not to cry, you know
F ~ Am
'Cause maybe sometimes we've got to trust ourselves
C ~ Am F
That when you die you go someplace else
CHORUS:
Be[Dm]lieve me, [Am]all the days you're un[G]sure
Be[Dm]lieve in me, I don't [Am]want to any[G]more
And [Dm]in the dark, [Am]picture me in your [G]mind
And I'll [Dm]lay with you
[Am]You don't ever be [G]scared at [Dm]night
[Am]You don't ever be [G]scared at [Dm]night
C G C ~ ~ G F C ~ ~ G F ~ C
You don't ever be scared at night
