I Can Sleep When I’m Dead  Jason Michael Carroll


I Can Sleep When I'm Dead - Jason Michael Carroll

Tabbed by: Davis
Tuning: EADGBE (Standard)
Listen to the song for timing and playing pattern reference.

D (Played over untill the E Chord)
I got a little game that I play
And I call it "Try to beat the morning paper home"
I ain't very good but I get a lot of practice,
Even won once a month ago
Of [E]course there was a girl involved that [F]wasn't gonna let me [G]rest
But I've always [D]said[G] I can sleep when I'm[D] dead
( Tab from: )
If there's [D]somethin' goin' on within a [G]hundred miles from home,
Ya [A]gonna hear my V-8 [D]sing
Long as [D]I can beat the train and they [G]got a passing lane,
Baby, [A]I ain't gonna miss a thi[D]ng
[Bm]Life's too fun and [A]I'm too young and the [G]night ain't over [E]yet
Like I [A]said I can sleep when I'm[D] dead
It ain't no fun if ya ain't got money
So I always make it in to work
The trick is to leave at least a half an hour
To brush my teeth and change my shirt
Keep a closet full of Red Bull and Visine to hide the red
I don't need the rest, I can sleep when I'm dead
A (Repeat)
When I get tired, I'll go to bed
All that I can say is that it hasn't happened yet
If there's somethin' goin' on within a hundred miles from home,
Ya gonna hear my V-8 sing
Long as I can beat the train and they got a passing lane,
Baby, I ain't gonna miss a thing
Life's too fun and I'm too young and the night ain't over yet
Like I said I can sleep when I'm dead
Like I said
Like I said
I can sleep when I'm dead
(I ain't even tired yet)
